I would like to escape permanently.

It’s been 2 years now. I’ve grown attached to some of the survivors. Its getting us down this endless cycle of bonfire, trial, bonfire, trial, bonfire, trial.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could eventually escape. Then you get a little cut-scene of your character returning to their former life. Only no time has passed at all.

I’m sort of stumped what the criteria for a permanent escape would be though. Escape 500 times? Find an ultra ultra rare item in a chest? Or maybe a very rare bloodweb item which locates a previously invisible exit?

    I believe a long time ago they mentioned the possibility of a REAL escape, but I think that was just an idea tossed about.

    I hope they go back and actually implement zomething.

    Probably something like "Kill the Entity".

    Which should be close to impossible at the least.

    Anyway, the only true way to escape is to delete the game from your account.

    From a lore point of view the little background information that has cropped up in recent characters kind of suggests they have died.

    It would definitely be interesting. Maybe we'll see something similar to that in the future.

    If I recall correctly, an old devstream mentioned that there IS a way to escape the realm. It isn't in the game, but the lore for it exists.

    I can't remember who but someone said one of the addons or items gives a "clue" to this. I never figured it out.

    The Entity lets you escape to entertain itself, because it knows you'll just be right back in the trial again. It could be because you sent them their yourself or another player does.

    Either way, The Entity gets a show...

    I've personally always wanted a little story mode sort of thing with this game. I'm assuming The Archives are the closest thing we're going to get, but it would be really cool if it was sort of a side game that lets you play the original characters and help them escape the realm. Perhaps if given the option, they could even choose to stay.

    If that's the case, then I am pleased to announce that I recently, truly escaped!

    (I still check out the forums to see what's going on with DBD, to see if I'll eventually be inspired to reinstall, but I'm not holding my breath with BHVR).

    Adds a new escape route but there is a .1% chance of it working and if it fails the entity kills you

  • TheShocktorTheShocktor Member Posts: 30

    I've posted about this before. Another user compiled a list of lore related questions, and answers from the devs.


    A :"We hinted to that at some point, to having a very secret sequence of things that could allow you to do that, maybe not killing the killer, but escaping for real.

    That answer was really interesting, but I honestly doubt such a thing exists or will ever exist. As someone said in my post about it, data miners would have found it.

    I thought all the Survivors were actually dead already, like for example Jane.

  • Atrushan88Atrushan88 Member Posts: 1,601

    The thing about this is you'd lose survivors or killers to play if this were a thing, which wouldn't be fun. I suppose you could make it where if a character leaves permanently, a character of similar appearance replaces them.

  • KillermainBTWm8KillermainBTWm8 Member Posts: 3,943

    The only way I really see this happening is if they make a story mode event that's short where you play in "story mode" and get see how you escape from the entity's realm wouldn't expect it to be long though would be cool to see that though.
