Holiday Season, Ugly Sweaters Season

With only a few days to go before the Holidays, Dead by Daylight just released an update to the Ugly Sweaters Collection, featuring new sweaters for Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine. Few things can strike fear into the heart of The Entity’s chosen Killers. Even the incessant sound of a clicking flashlight has little effect. But these? These may very well come close. Festive, snug, and delightfully groan-inducing, these Resident Evil™-themed ugly sweaters bring a touch of Holiday cheer to Raccoon City. Even the iciest hearts will melt at the sight of these finely stitched personalized patterns – which can also be used to staunch emergency blood loss, ideal for S.T.A.R.S. agents and rookie police officers alike.

Bone Chill Gives the Thrills

Through December 23rd 11AM ETDead by Daylight welcomes winter with the Bone Chill event, featuring an exciting new Snowman gameplay mechanic, unlockable Holiday cosmetics and charms as well as plenty of festive atmosphere to enjoy. Holiday-themed hooks, lockers, generators, and barrels add a touch of cheer to the Realm. The event introduces six snowmen into every trial. These snowmen supply Survivors shelter in a time of need, perhaps even allowing for a desperate escape through the Exit Gates. Successfully escaping while inside a snowman earns players a holiday reward. Of course, should a Killer happen to destroy a snowman while a Survivor is inside…well, there’s only so much protection snow can offer. No matter the outcome, performing unique interactions with Snowmen as either Killer or Survivor earns fans exclusive cosmetic rewards. Additionally, every day until January 6, 2022, players will be provided with a form of in-game currency upon logging into the game. Each gift period begins at 11 AM ET and ends 24 hours later.

Dead by Daylight’s latest Chapter Portrait of a Murder is currently available for $6.99 on the Microsoft Store, Steam, Stadia as well as the Epic Games Store and $7.99 via Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
