    Yep, seriously i don't ######### about BHVR a lot but goddamn if you can't make a deal to keep the license forever (so that people can buy it forever and keep the map you made with the chapters) why the hell would you get the license? .....Like i'm disappointed in BHVR and i mean I already have the chapter but it's just wrong and really weird for that to happen in a game.

    But I think that if you play on ps4 and a friend gives you his account and you activate it you will get the chapter I think

    F.A.Q | Stranger Things Last Chance Sale

    By PeanitsLast Updated: 4:30 pm

    Why will Stranger Things content not be available for purchase after November 17th at 2PM EST? 

    As with all live-service games, frequent updates, additions, and the occasional change are to be expected. With Stranger Things, our focus continues to be ensuring the legacy of these characters within our game for fans who have purchased them or plan to do so by November 17th at 2 PM EST. With the exception of the Hawkins National Laboratory, all Stranger Things content surrounding Nancy, Steve, and The Demogorgon will remain part of the Dead by Daylight experience.   

    What will be the last date to purchase the Stranger Things content and does it affect the download after the end date?

    Fans of Stranger Things will be able to purchase the chapter until November 17th at 2 PM EST. So, we invite those who have yet to purchase Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington, and The Demogorgon as well as their respective cosmetics to do so before November 17th at 2 PM EST and ensure themselves ongoing access to this content moving forward! 

    For Dead by Daylight Mobile, the Stranger Things content will also be available for purchase until October 17th at 2 PM EST.  

    If I own the Stranger Things Chapter or individual characters, will I still be able to play with the characters after the removal? 

    With the exception of the Hawkins National Laboratory Map, all Stranger Things content including characters, outfits, and perks will remain playable if purchased before November 17th at 2 PM EST. Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington, and The Demogorgon will continue to be part of the Dead by Daylight experience for all players. We invite fans who have yet to purchase these characters and cosmetics to do so before November 17th at 2 PM EST and ensure themselves ongoing access to this content moving forward!    

    Will the map still be playable after November 17th at 2 PM EST?  

    With the exception of the Hawkins National Laboratory Map, all Stranger Things content including characters, outfits, and perks will remain playable if purchased before November 17th at 2 PM EST.   

    What will happen with the perks/shrine/add-ons? 

    All perks, teachable perks and add-ons related to the Stranger Things characters will continue to be earnable/unlockable in those characters’ Bloodwebs. The Daily Rituals will also still be available for players who own the Stranger Things characters. Info on teachable perks & shrine in below question.   

    What about achievements?

    You don’t lose your progress on the characters that you already own. The Achievements will be made generic (so not specific to Stranger Things), and if you already had completed the achievement, the achievement will be automatically unlocked for you. 

    What will happen to the teachable perks? 

    Teachable perks for Steve, Nancy, and The Demogorgon will remain available to earn on those characters for players who own them, with new versions of these teachables being made available in the Shrine of Secrets to all players. Any player who has already earned a teachable perk will continue to have it available to learn on their other characters. 

    Does this apply to all platforms, including mobile?  

    Yes, this applies to all platforms and mobile.  

    For Steam, PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, Nintendo Switch as well as Dead by Daylight Mobile: Stranger Things content won’t be available for purchase after November 17th at 2 PM EST.  

    Will I be able to stream /play with Stranger Things characters? 

    Stranger Things content downloaded before November 17th at 2 PM EST, with the exception of the Map, will remain available for players, streamers and influencers alike. So, we invite the Stranger Things fans who have yet to get the chapter to purchase it before that date in order to secure access to it and enjoy the series’ content. 

    Does this situation also apply to other licenses? 

    This only applies to the Stranger Things Chapter. 

    What happens if I bought the characters with Auric Cells? 

    You will be able to keep your characters even if you bought them with Auric Cells. 

    Will we have other cosmetics created for the Stranger Things characters even if the content has been removed? 

    No new content will be created after November 17th at 2 PM EST. However, with the exception of the Hawkins National Laboratory Map, all Stranger Things content including characters, outfits, and perks will remain playable if purchased before that date. 

    Can we purchase Stranger Things characters’ outfits after November 17th at 2 PM EST if we already purchased the characters before November 17th at 2 PM EST? 

    Fans of Stranger Things will be able to purchase the chapter and its related content until November 17th at 2 PM EST. So, we invite those who have yet to purchase Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington, and The Demogorgon as well as their respective cosmetics to do so before November 17th at 2 PM EST and ensure themselves ongoing access to this content moving forward! 

    Can I be refunded if I bought the Stranger Things Chapter or Collection? 

    All characters, cosmetics, and perks associated with the Stranger Things Chapter will remain fully playable if purchased before November 17th at 2 PM EST. Players owning any of these will experience zero change in gameplay or appearance, therefore no refunds will be issued. While the Hawkins National Laboratory Map will be removed, it and all the rest of our maps are free and have no charges associated with them.

    We paid money for a chapter and now a portion of it is being taken away? Great -.-

  • ClowningClowning Member Posts: 886

    Yes, I get that. My point is that it seems almost wasteful to throw all the design behind Demo away, right? Which makes me think they just might slap the same abilities/perks on a different character that will replace Demo in the store, at least eventually. Or something of the kind. Otherwise the players that come after us will forever be denied a long-lunging, portal opening character.

  • TurretcubeTurretcube Member Posts: 213

    So will the Generator Achievement tied to Hawkin's be removed from the game, auto completed or forever locked?

  • IlliterateGenocideIlliterateGenocide Member Posts: 3,044

    they said they would be turned into generic achivements not tied to the dlc

  • MrBuffaloMrBuffalo Member Posts: 291

    it saddens me that there will be players who won't be able to use Second Wind....it brings tears to my eyes.

  • xenotimebongxenotimebong Member Posts: 2,803

    They just announced the next season of Stranger Things and dropped the first teaser a week or so back, so could be something to do with that. I’m assuming Jonathan was agreed a while ago, he was leaked back in May so they started working on him before that.

  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 11,974

    That first question is arguably the most important one, and it is the only one thathas what is essentially a non-answer.

  • M4dBoOmrM4dBoOmr Member Posts: 245

    very weird... I mean I hate the map still weird to see it go 😔

  • TheGhostofZgorTheGhostofZgor Member Posts: 334

    Man...I really liked the Hawkins Lab map, It seemed like the only indoor map people didn't out right hate either. At least I still got Steve and Demogorgon but man this really sucks.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 4,904

    Are the perks staying?

  • IlliterateGenocideIlliterateGenocide Member Posts: 3,044

    yeah, they will be made generic and chucked into the shrine of secrets

  • TurretcubeTurretcube Member Posts: 213

    Just found it, that would include Adept's as well, no need to rush them then if you don't have them.

  • VolczVolcz Member Posts: 645

    Demo gonn have a playrate lower than the Plague.

    But yea, sad news.

  • IlliterateGenocideIlliterateGenocide Member Posts: 3,044
  • FancyMrBFancyMrB Member Posts: 1,189

    Right???

    So those characters, perks and the killer will be unavailable to new people after Nov... and we lose a beloved map. That seems very sketchy. What does that mean for our other licenses in DBD?

    I am not familiar with how this stuff works but I thought once a company agrees to a license being shared that is it. Dbd has whatever they agreed upon for the remainder of DBD.

    I wish we had more info :< That tweet alone is very depressing without any reasoning.

  • JesyaJesya Member Posts: 1,092

    I know people are happy because Hawkins is leaving-- but in reality this is sad for BHVR to lose a license.. even if that map was poorly designed. I hope other licenses do not follow suit.... and perhaps in the future something can be worked out with ST and BHVR.
