The event celebrates last week’s Chinese/Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dog.
Dead by Daylight has mostly been making headlines here on BD for the iconic slasher villains its been adding as playable characters, but today we’re here to spotlight a limited special event that’s currently active within the game. It’s called Dead by Daylight: Howling Grounds, and you have through the end of February to take part.
The game’s developers detail the event…
“Our Lunar New Year festival, Howling Grounds, has started and the Entity’s World has gone through a brand new change to be in the right mood. Stretch those muscles and sharpen your hooks as you’ll need them to unlock the Howling Grounds mystery cosmetics which will surely make you more stylish even if they don’t bring you good fortune.
During the event, you will have to find and burn a new Offering, the “Red Envelope”, calling upon The Entity for very special generators and hooks. You will earn Golden Coins and Burnt Coins when you fix Lunar generators or when you hook survivors on the Lunar Hook. Collect as many of these coins as possible, as they are the key to unlock the Howling Grounds cosmetic rewards. There is one reward for the killer and survivor respectively.
Should you accomplish your individual challenges, keep collecting coins to contribute to the Community Challenge that unlocks the third reward for all players (collective goal: 10 Million Coins).”
So get to killing in the freshly-updated maps, gamers!
