Fans of the brutally enjoyable Dead by Daylight game can look forward to experiencing the Halloween season festivities through the ‘Haunted by Daylight’ Event come October 11, 2022.

The upcoming ‘Haunted by Daylight’ celebrations will start on October 11, 2022, and will last until November 3, 2022. The festivities will kick off with the release of the anticipated store Collections. A brand-new Archive Tome will be released on October 12, 2022. An in-game event will become live on October 13, 2022.

Talking about the in-game event, which will last until November 3, 2022, players will be able to unlock a bunch of horrifying cosmetics and experience intense challenges. The Dead by Daylight lobby and loading screens will feature fearsome pumpkins and frightening decorations.

A new gameplay mechanic will also be added where players will need to gather and steal “Void Energy”. Also, daily login rewards are also up for grabs to keep you coming back for more.

Furthermore, (yes, there’s more!), Dead by Daylight will hold a ‘Free Weekend’ from October 27th to November 1, 2022, to encourage more players to come and experience what Halloween Season has in store for them.

Let’s go over the details!

A New Tome: Malevolence

​A new Rift will be opened on October 12, 2022. It will feature a new Tome that has memories for Ghost Face, and the Survivor Mikaela Reid (described as a feisty Survivor who loves the macabre and the supernatural). Are you ready to dive into the memories of the mind behind the iconic mask? From what I can understand, the story will involve Ghost Face not liking a local cartoonist parodying him in the local papers.

The Fog turns into a twisted playground for Horror fan favourite Ghost Face, and we’re happy to include him in our Halloween festivities,” shared Dave Richard, Creative Director for Dead by Daylight. ​ “Ghost Face is a particularly terrifying enemy – being able to stalk his prey – and dedicated to striking Survivors down before they know what hits them and to have him as part of the Rift is a treat!”

There are also Charms, Outfits, and exclusive mask variations for Ghost Face.

Take note; Tome 13: Malevolence will be available on October 12, 2022, on Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, and the Nintendo Switch.

There’s a whole lot going on in the trailer below!

More Treats from the Dead by Daylight Store

​Of course, you can’t celebrate Halloween without scary costumes. Players can have fun through the new Outfits from the ‘Hallowed Blight Collection’ and the limited-time ‘Tricks and Treats Collection’ that will become available from October 11th to November 3, 2022. The ‘Midnight Grove Collection’ will be making a return during this time along with two new Very Rare Outfits for Mikaela Reid and The Doctor.

The ‘Hallowed Blight Collection’ features two Very Rare Outfits for The Oni and Albert Wesker, The Mastermind. I have to say, I do like the outfit for Albert Wesker. It reminds me of what happened to him in Resident Evil 5.

The limited-time ‘Tricks and Treats Collection’ will include two new Very Rare Outfits for Jane Romero (Hollywood Galmour) and Dwight Fairfield (Toilet Paper Mummy).

Initially released back in June of 2016, as a fan of Dead by Daylight I’m so happy to see the game continuing to expand the player base and add well-known horror characters.
