Dead by Daylight Blood Moon Event Starts Now With New Tome, New Rewards

The annual Blood Moon Event for Dead by Daylight has just begun, and it’s an extra-bloody one. From March 18th, 11am ET (3pm GMT), to March 31st, 11am ET (3pm GMT), players will be able to collect Droplets and use them to create Blood Zones — these special zones will improve Killer attacks and Survivor stealth, and grant bonus bloodpoints while inside them. There’s a new item to play with, a new tome to complete, and new rewards to earn.

Check out our TL;DR of the event below for the cogent details, or read on to see the full announcement!

Raise a cup of red and stare into the scarlet depths. The essence of life, the draught of death. In its reflection, the blood moon hangs.

Dead by Daylight’s Blood Moon Event is here. From March 18th 11AM ET – March 31st 11 AM ET, step beneath the scarlet sky and experience an event that’s certain to get your heart pumping.

The Blood Moon looms overhead, a herald of carnage yet to come. Behold its full splendour in the Event-exclusive lobby screen, though a word of caution – you may find yourself so transfixed you forget to load into a Trial. Upon doing so, you’ll notice that many familiar assets have been altered by the strange lunar phenomenon.

The basic goal of this Event is to collect Droplets and deposit them into Blood Basins. When that happens, a Blood Zone is created, granting all players within its radius an Area-wide buff. Survivors can carry a maximum of 1 Droplet, while Killers can carry 2 (and start a Trial with 1).

3 Fragile Blood Basins spawn across the Map at the start of a Trial, allowing players to obtain additional Droplets. Once you have one in your possession, you’ll be able to create a Blood Zone at various locations throughout the Map. Note that there will only ever be a total of 4 Droplets in play during a match.

The area-wide effects are different for Killer and Survivor. For Killer, your Lunge Attack duration is longer, but your blade wipe animation is extended. For Survivor, your grunts of pain are quieter and your Pools of Blood dissipate faster. Both sides will receive a Bloodpoint bonus for time spent in the Blood Zone, so it’s in your best interest to create them.

Upon creation, a Blood Zone will be protected for a duration, during which time the player that created it will benefit from the effects – even if they’re outside the Blood Zone’s area. Once that protection fades, players from either side can remove the Blood Zone and reclaim the Droplets.

Speaking of Map, the Blood Moon Event introduces a new Survivor Item, the Bloodsense Map, into the Bloodweb. When you use it in a Trial, you’ll instantly see the Auras of any injured Survivor no matter where they are. Only thing is, using the Map will leave Pools of Blood, allowing the Killer to pick up your trial.

This Event will bring forth a new Event Tome, featuring 2 Levels of Challenges to complete. In addition, we’re also introducing the Blood Seekers Community Challenge. How does one become a Blood Seeker? Simply by creating Blood Zones in-game, which contributes to a collective track filled by the entire Dead by Daylight community. The higher the track, the more Bloodpoints players will receive at the end of a game.

As per tradition, the Blood Moon Event arrives with an Event Tome loaded with new challenges to complete and rewards to reap. The more Challenges you do, the more Blood Trinkets you earn to spend on Outfits, Charms, and Player Cards.

An explorer delving deep over her head. A formidable warrior spurred by insatiable bloodlust. Use your Event Currency to unlock Élodie Rakoto’s Catacombs Exploration Outfit and The Oni’s Red Mist Outfit.

Beyond Outfits, Charms are an exciting way to add a dash of personality to your characters. Whether you’re looking to express your own individuality, or perhaps deck your Survivors out with Charms that feels lore-accurate, the Droplets, Blood Basin, and Dripping Skulls will be an elegant addition to your collection.

Our latest addition to the Cosmetic family are Player Cards, so if you’re the type who enjoys a classy dash of the macabre, we’ve got you covered with several Blood Moon-themed Badges and Banners.
