There is no word on when content from Chapter 27 will be put into the mobile version of the game. Given that Sadako and Yoichi Asakawa, characters that were released on consoles and PC back in March 2022, were just put into Dead by Daylight Mobile, it may be a while until mobile players see The Skull Merchant and the Lyra siblings.

Alternatively, if you would like to test out the Killer and Survivors before release, you can do that right now if you have the PC version of the game. All you need to do is get access to the Dead by Daylight Public Test Server (PTB), a server where players can test out new content before they officially get released to the public. It’s important to note that everything you see on PTB is not final as the developer, Behaviour Interactive, will be using player feedback in order to finetune content such as abilities and perks.
