Although the core of Dead by Daylight is dripping with horror, terror and gruesome scares, it doesn't mean that the developers at Behaviour Interactive are going to start skipping the spooky Halloween holiday.
If anything, the developers have leaned into the holiday to deliver plenty of amazing content and cosmetics for fans to enjoy. So when you're not arguing with your friends over the best Dead By Daylight killers, you can argue over the best outfits instead!
We suspect that the Halloween event will once again return in 2021. So for those curious, here's everything you need to know ahead of the next in-game Halloween event.
When Does The Halloween Event Start In 2021?
To get an idea of when the next Halloween event will start in Dead By Daylight, it's worth looking at previous events to get an idea of when it could launch.
The previous events started and ended on the following dates:
- The Eternal Blight: 21 October until 4 November 2020
- The Withering Blight: 22 October until 1 November 2019
- The Hallowed Blight: 19 October until 2 November 2018
- All Hallows' Eve: 26 October 2017 until 1 November 2017
Based on the previous events it seems likely that the next Halloween based event will begin around 19-21st of October and last for roughly two weeks, ending on the 4th or 5th of November.
It's possible this could be part of the mid-chapter update for Dead By Daylight Chapter 21.
What To Expect From The Dead By Daylight Halloween Event In 2021?
The Halloween event has previously been part of the reoccurring Blight Event. However, the 2020 event was the final chapter in The Hallowed Blight story arc that began in 2018.
So players could likely expect a new story arc in 2021.
At its core though, the event adds new Objectives for both Killers and Survivors to complete in exchange for cosmetic rewards, bloodpoints and more. Chances are, we'll also see new Dead By Daylight Promo Codes released as well.
We may also see the return of the Pustula Flowers to the Fog, bringing with them plenty of Halloween items, charms and add-ons from years past.
It could be that we also see a new collection of Blighted Outfits, similar to the Hallowed Curse Collection introduced last year.
Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the event.
