Sending shivers up your spine
The temperatures have fallen and the nights have gotten longer. No, that’s not a reference to The Entity’s Realm. Winter has arrived, which means the return of Dead by Daylight’s Bone Chill Event. Once again, we’re bringing plenty of holiday atmosphere, dark and fantastical Cosmetics, a few familiar visitors, and much more. The Bone Chill Event runs from December 8th, 11:00 AM ET – January 4th, 11:00 AM ET.
Your favorite Dead by Daylight Maps have undergone a holiday transformation – especially the snow-covered Mount Ormond, where winter is no stranger. Generators, Hooks, the Exit Gates, and the Basement have been updated with a festive aesthetic, offering a touch of joy amidst the horror. That is, until the Hook counter begins to climb…
The limited-time Winter Party Starter, which Survivors can use as a blinding device, a distraction, or a simple display of celebratory glee, has returned to The Bloodweb.
Snowmen have returned to the Realm. Are they friend or foe? Shelter or coffin? One look into their beady eyes reveals nothing. Approach them and find out.
Every trial, eight Snowmen spawn throughout the Map. Survivors and Killers can both enter a Snowman and move around, albeit at a reduced speed. While Survivors could do this last year, this marks the first time Killers can get in on the Snowman action – which means a new level of playful, strategic fun.
While inside a Snowman, a Killer’s Terror Radius will be suppressed, making them undetectable to Survivors. Though a Killer cannot use their Power while inside a Snowman, they can use it to lie in wait and ambush unsuspecting Survivors.
Last year, we were deeply entertained by all the clips of Snowmen high fiving each other. Now, we’ve added a little bonus whenever two Players high-five each other for the first time while in a Snowman.
It’s the season of giving, and the new Bone Chill Event Tome embodies that philosophy. Complete 2 Levels of Challenges throughout the Event Tome to earn a variety of Cosmetic rewards, including new Outfits from the community-voted Deck The Trials Collection:
- The Dredge – Frosty The Nightmare
- David King – Makeshift Nutcracker
Beyond that, Haddie Kaur and Vittorio Toscano are the latest Survivors to join the club with these unlockable Ugly Sweaters:
- Haddie Kaur – Harbinger of Wool – Rare
- Vittorio Toscano – Total Warmth – Rare
Even the most ruthless Killers can’t resist getting in on the holiday action, with 2 unlockable Weapons to earn and equip:
- The Deathslinger – Holiday Harpoon
- The Huntress – Holiday Surprise
In keeping with tradition, we’re also bringing unlockable Frosty Eyes for our latest original Killers, The Dredge and The Knight. If you happened to miss out on Frosty Eyes from previous years, stay tuned to our social media pages for information on how to unlock them.
In addition to all the unlockable Cosmetics listed above, the Event Tome has you covered with a few seasonal Charms:
- Dwelf Figurine
- Trickster, New In Box
- A Friendly Face
- Maurice’s Stocking
