From the depths, a dark presence stirs. Spread the curse to Dead by Daylight, with a new Chapter inspired by Kōji Suzuki’s novel Ringu and the original film adaptation. Sadako Rising features a new Killer – The Onryō – and a new Survivor, Yoichi Asakawa. Purchasing this add-on also unlocks an exclusive charm: Cursed Videotape.
The Killer is Sadako, The Onryō. With immense powers and a fearsome temper, Sadako was left to perish in a watery grave. Her violent wrath manifested into a cursed videotape that condemns its viewers to a chilling fate.
The Onryō's Power: Deluge of Fear
Sadako begins each trial Undetectable and invisible to Survivors who aren’t close to her. When near a Survivor her presence is intermittently revealed. To attack, Sadako can Manifest at will into her material form, becoming visible in the process.
Sadako can also take material form by Projecting through one of the many TVs throughout the map. Upon doing so, Sadako will teleport to the TV’s location and emerge, increasing the Condemned progress of any nearby Survivor. When a Survivor reaches a full Condemned meter, they can be instantly killed when downed.
Survivors can slow Sadako’s Projection by retrieving tapes from TVs, temporarily shutting them down in the process – though in doing so, an additional Condemned progress is gained. There is one specific TV per trial that will allow Survivors to lower their Condemned level.
The Onryō comes with 3 new perks:
Scourge Hook: Floods of Rage
Begin each trial with up to four Scourge Hooks. When a Survivor hooked on a Scourge Hook is rescued, the aura of all other Survivors is temporarily revealed.
Call of Brine
Upon kicking a generator, its aura is highlighted and progress regresses faster for an extended duration. Any time a Survivor completes a Good Skill Check on an affected generator, you receive a loud noise notification.
When a generator is nearly complete, Survivors repairing that generator will face continuous Skill Checks until the repair is complete. If they miss or stop repairing, the generator is temporarily blocked.
No stranger to Sadako’s fury is Yoichi Asakawa, whose young life was forever altered by The Onryō’s rage. Now a marine biologist, his story continues as his search for answers drove him through treacherous waters, deep into a realm beyond rational understanding.
Yoichi comes with 3 new perks:
After stunning the Killer, your scratch marks, pools of blood, and grunts of pain are hidden for a brief duration.
When another Survivor is injured, your aura is revealed to them from a distance. You can also heal your teammates faster.
Boon: Dark Theory
Bless a Dull or Hex Totem to create a Boon Totem. All Survivors within range of the Boon Totem gain a boost to movement speed. The boost continues for a brief duration upon leaving the Boon’s aura.
