Asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Dead By Daylight has a Halloween event going on right now named The Hallowed Blight. From October 19th to November 2nd players will interact with toxins set off from a new plant.
During gameplay, survivors fill vials with the toxin from a plant that comes from the world of the Entity (the evil spider-god-thing that grabs survivors when they die). Killers can fill their own vials by hanging the survivors on hooks and offering them up to the Entity. Whoever fills their vial will be rewarded with Putrid Serum, the in-game currency for the Halloween event. Putrid Serum can be exchanged for items that Behaviour Studios describe as “wicked Hallowed Blight cosmetic pieces, a Survivor’s Will’o Wisp flashlight or the All Hallows’ Eve Lunchbox (medkit) that glows with ghastly images.”
The original gameplay for Dead By Daylight which involves survivors starting up generators to open an escape will be put on hold for the event. The survivor’s sole purpose is to collect nectar and escape while the killer can get his nectar by putting survivors on hooks. It seems that there will not be enough serum for everyone so survivors will also be competing against each other throughout the match.
If you want to see the stream with the developers talking about the new event check out the video below. At 37:35 they start looking at the new skins.
While the two survivor skins they show are nothing exciting, the killer skins look terrifying. I absolutely love them. Do you plan on checking out the Hallowed Blight? Let me know in the comments!
Since we are neck deep in the season for terror, Dead By Daylight is now on sale through Steam, PS4, and Xbox One.
