MONTRÉAL – Oct. 13, 2023 – The most frightening event in the Dead by Daylight Universe, Haunted by Daylight, is just around the corner. Starting Oct. 18, players are invited to step into the Void, take part in thrilling gameplay challenges, and of course get decked out in spooky Outfits. A new Tome also awaits any brave soul looking to delve deeper into the world of Dead by Daylight.
Enter the Void
From Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. (EDT) until Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. (EDT), players will be able to experience an eerie new section of the Entity’s Realm for the first time.
The Haunted by Daylight Event introduces Void Zones: pockets of a mysterious Realm where former Survivors and Killers, now called Haunts, are discarded by The Entity. Players must deposit the Void Energy they collect into Unstable Rifts to open portals to the Void. Once inside, their goal will be to release Haunts into the Map where they’ll provide unique advantages throughout the Trial.
Players are invited to tune in to Dead by Daylight’s official YouTube and Twitch channels for a Haunted by Daylight LIVESTREAM beginning at 2 p.m. (EDT) on October (Friday the) 13th. Watch the team do a deep dive on all the new Haunted by Daylight gameplay mechanics, seasonal cosmetics, and other updates as well as a developer Q&A with a few surprises along the way. Only the bravest will dare enter the Void...
Explore New Stories
Available now, Tome 17: COMMITMENT uncovers new memories for The Oni and Feng Min, with appearances from The Dredge, Adam Francis and Dwight Fairfield. Explore Feng Min’s past through snapshots of heated e-sport competition and a difficult home life, while The Oni’s memories reveal the hulking Killer’s unmatched brutality and descent into madness.
Outfits to Die For
Available on Oct. 18, the Void Collection features Very Rare Outfits for David King, Yun-Jin Lee and Haddie Kaur.
These Void-touched Outfits present the Survivors with glowing blue eyes as the edges of their clothing seem to fade into an eerie oblivion. Ice-like spikes protrude from their shoulders and sleeves for a ghastly effect. Players will need to be quick as this Collection is only available until Nov. 6.
The Hallowed Blight Collection is also adding some new looks beginning Oct. 24 with Very Rare Outfits for The Onryo and Yoichi Asakawa, and an Ultra Rare Outfit for The Xenomorph.
The Onryo’s Hallowed Blight Outfit features her hair and clothing covered in eerie Blight Serum pustules while Yoichi’s Hallowed Blight Outfit features a chic deep-blue jacket, burgundy undershirt, and beige trousers stained with Blight Serum. As for the Xenomorph, its torso is covered with bulbous glowing growths, adding to an already terrifying silhouette.
The Haunted by Daylight Event arrives on Oct. 18, 2023, and will be playable until Nov. 6, 2023 on all supported platforms.
