Dead by Daylight is taking a stab at celebrating Halloween this year by offering players a chance to participate in the Hallowed Blight event. Both survivors and killer players will be in a rush to collect plant toxins scattered around the maps, filling up vials that can be used as a special currency for unlocking exclusive Halloween-themed wearable cosmetic items.


When initially announced by developers Behaviour Interactive, the event was only to last until Halloween, which meant that only one full outfit, or three separate cosmetic items, could be unlocked out of the full collection. This sparked a lot of outrage from the game's community, leading the developer to quickly make a change to allow for two full outfits, or six separate cosmetic items, to be unlocked instead. The event will now run until November 2nd.


In addition to the above cosmetic items that can be won in game, Behavioir Interactive is running a number of different contests on their forum including a pumpkin carving contest, artwork contest, and costume contest. Winners of the contest will receive Auric Cells, Dead by Daylight's in-game currency used to buy upgrades, cosmetics, and even new Killers.

Will you be collecting Vials of toxic this Halloween? See you on the killing fields.
