Spooky season is upon us once again, and with it comes the much-anticipated Dead by Daylight Haunted by Daylight event. This Halloween-themed event is sure to get you in the mood for scares and thrills as you dive into the world of Dead by Daylight.
So, when does the DBD Haunted by Daylight event begin? Mark your calendars for October 18, 2023, as that’s when the event kicks off. Starting at 8am PDT/11am EDT/4pm BST, players can participate in this spine-chilling event until November 6, 2023, at 8am PDT/11am EDT/4pm BST. During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to collect daily login rewards and immerse yourself in the spooky atmosphere.
If you’re familiar with Dead by Daylight, you know that the game is already filled with terrifying killers. However, during the Haunted by Daylight event, The Entity releases some old victims into the game, making things even more challenging for survivors. If you happen to be a killer main, these victims might come in handy as you carry out your dirty work. Keep an eye out for more details about this year’s event, including new in-game items and cosmetics.
In previous Haunted by Daylight events, players could collect Void Energy by completing various objectives, such as hooking survivors or fixing generators. This energy could then be deposited into an Unstable Rift, unlocking spooky rewards for players. Additionally, pumpkins were scattered around the map, which could be destroyed for trick-or-treat surprises. While it’s unclear whether these features will make a return in 2023, you can expect a range of Halloween-themed cosmetics and items to unlock.
The Haunted by Daylight trailer teases an entirely new and eerie feature for this year’s event. Ghostly Haunts, victims of The Entity we’ve never encountered before, will enter the game through void zones. These Haunts are described as jump scares, so brace yourself for some unexpected frights. How these Haunts will affect gameplay and how players can protect themselves or use them to their advantage remains unknown. But it’s safe to say that they will add an extra layer of terror to an already terrifying experience.
As for event rewards, not much has been revealed yet. However, survivors can expect new skeletal cosmetics, while killers will likely receive some bone-chilling items of their own. In previous events, survivors like Jane, Claudette, and David received rib cage tops. This year, characters such as Mikaela and Vittorio will also be featured.
The DBD Halloween 2023 roadmap reveals that there’s more to look forward to beyond the Haunted by Daylight event. On October 13, a new tome opens up, delivering additional content for players. There will also be plenty of new in-game and real-world merchandise available to enhance the Halloween season. From new IRL merch on October 3 to a Fog Whisperer Livestream on October 13, there’s something for every Dead by Daylight fan to enjoy.
So, gear up for the DBD Haunted by Daylight event and prepare to face new challenges and scares. Whether you’re a survivor or a killer, this Halloween season in Dead by Daylight is bound to keep you on the edge of your seat.
