Dead by Daylight Bone Chill Event Details

Winter Wonderland Map Update

Some of your favorite maps in Dead by Daylight have received a holiday transformation. Generators, Hooks, the Exit Gates, and the Basement have received a festive, holiday-themed aesthetic update. In addition, you’ll find that the limited-time Winter Party Starter, which Survivors can use as a blinding device, a distraction, or a simple display of celebratory joy, has returned.

Snowmen Have Returned

Snowmen have returned to the Realm, and whether they’re good or bad, you won’t know until you approach them.

During each trial, eight  Snowmen spawn throughout the Map. Survivors and Killers can enter a Snowman and move around. But at a much slower speed. While Survivors were the only ones who could do this last year, this is the first time Killers can enter the Snowmen.  

While inside a Snowman, a Killer’s Terror Radius will be suppressed. This makes them undetectable to Survivors. While Killers can’t use their Power while inside a Snowman, they can use it to lie in wait and ambush unsuspecting Survivors.

This year, when you high-five one another as Snowmen, you’ll receive a little bonus.
