Is there a Halloween Event?

Hello,
Will there be a Halloween event soon? Because the devs have not said anything about it yet. What do you think?

    I hope they do something special this year. 
    A new map a theme halloween will be amazing (ik im dreaming)
  • TheBeanTheBean Member Posts: 2,303

    Hope so! Would be neat if they got something going with the new Halloween movie coming out.

    Interesting they mentioned a licensed character may get new cosmetics (hopefully I heard that right)... a few months before Halloween.

    Michael probably would be the easiest licensed player to add new cosmetics into.

    I honestly hope that will add cosmetics for Laurie and Micheal.

    Plus I'd like them to re work Sole Survivor and Dying Light

    Well given that Dead by Daylight is a horror game they'd be remiss to not bring back the old Halloween menu and music.

    But I am curious, what would you like to see in a DbD Halloween event?

    a Halloween Lobby and special Halloween items. Like last year: D

    Omg please please please bring a Halloween event! The Christmas one was so good with the ambience. Put things in the environment that look like a stalking killer (scarecrows, more jagged hooks, etc) so that survivors are always watching for Michael (which killer main isn’t going to be playing him this holiday come on?) 

    For things I’m not expecting but would be a dream come true: 1.) new cosmetics for Laurie and Michael 2.) new haddonfield map 3.) new stalking game mode (ever since yesterday’s stream so exciting to hear about new game modes coming at some point.

    What would be interesting is some jump scares.. like when you open a locker or chest a ghost jumps out to scare you and disappears.... Or when you pop a gen it makes a different halloween noise... Weird stuff

    I would like to see a similar theme from last year with some cool new items to collect along with releasing dr loomis as a survivor  in honor of the new movie and the late actor 
  • RattmanRattman Member Posts: 832
    Something related to new Halloween movie would be cool. Maybe some love to Laurie and Michael.

    I loved the Halloween themed items of last year. And it wouldn't be bad if there would be a Halloween themed collection/cosmetics coming in the shop.
    Besides that either Halloween themed objectives like the winter event or if it's manageabele to do because I'm coming from TF2 changed Halloween themed playmodes. Even if it's just another Howling Grounds/Scorching Summer BBQ like.

  • not_Queennot_Queen Administrator, Dev, Community Manager Posts: 1,051

    @ItzSoulz Nothing has been announced about a halloween event.

  • Bravo0413Bravo0413 Member Posts: 3,324
    Decorations on the maps like the winter event only Halloween themed, some sort different objective to complete the event.... a trick or treat event where theres some sort of basket or like someone else stated maybe jacko'lanterns that are placed around the maps survivors can grab candy from them if found and if they collect enough candy they earn a cosmetic ofcourse 😁 also bring back the Halloween items 
  • UsuiUsui Member Posts: 519

    Decorations and the music would be great. I love t he events like the BBQ and the chinese new year. Something like that would be awesome, and to be fair I think it's the best opportunity for a new event. Halloween would be the best time for a game horror themed. Although if nothing is in the works I guess that means there isn't enough time. :/

    It is the best time to attract as many players as possible it's a horror game this time of year is when more people are going to be playing it especially with the new changes and DLC the servers are going to have to be ready... I couldn't imagine the team not wanting to make the most of this time of year.

  • C4GarudaC4Garuda Member Posts: 198
    Jack o lanterns, scarecrows, etc spread around map for survivors to interact with. Getting items for cosmetics, and killers could have the usual hook or a similar item to interact with, like maybe the crows.
  • xChrisxxChrisx Member Posts: 794
    New outfits theme halloween pls

    @not_Queen

    Similar to past events, in that each invite offering used spawns an extra event hook or gen (2 gens and 2 hooks spawn by default). The twist..

    Killers and survivors have to collect candy for some kind of reward (spooky cosmetics). Killers collect it from completed event gens (2 candies each gen) and survivors collect it after being hooked on an event hook (1 candy each hook, same hook can get a new candy each time). At the end of the trial killers also get 1 candy for each kill and all survivors get 1 candy for each gen, event or not, done before they died.

    So both killers and survivors are rewarded for completing their objectives and when the other side completes theirs. This makes it so every game counts, even if you get no kills or no escapes. You can cap the amount of candies possible per game, or just adjust the amount required for the reward.

    This would mean less event hook sabotaging or gen camping.

    Acquiring a candy also gets you the BP bonus if you played the special Halloween invite. If you cap the candies each side can get during a trial, when they reach that cap they receive another BP bonus.

    I would imagine with it being halfway in September, there isn't much time to prepare for something by October. So I'll keep my suggestions simple.

    How about giving all the crows glowing red eyes to start? Should be a simple texture swap?

    A return of last years spoopy flashlights and medkits would also be cool - the assets are still there.

    One of these years I'd love to see you guys all out. With this game's horror motif, Halloween is a natural fit for this game. But I could be biased, it's my most favorite holiday of the year. :)

    Well I know it would be difficult because of him being a license AND a DLC but I think it would be cool, because of the new movie coming out, to have an event that maybe revolves around Michael Myers in some way.
