Dead by Daylight Launches 5th Anniversary Limited-Time Event

Celebrate Dead by Daylight's 5th Anniversary

Dead by Daylight is celebrating its fifth birthday and the party just wouldn’t be the same without you. 

Check out our 5th Anniversary Event trailer below, then read on for details on everything you can expect when you log in to celebrate with us from June 30th to July 22nd

New Year, New Anniversary Crown 

Anniversary Crowns are back in Dead by Daylight, and they’re better than ever. Our new, more intricate crowns can be claimed by any original Killer or Survivor – but you’ve got to find them first. 

Special Crown Pedestals will spawn inside of every trial. Discover and interact with them to gain a golden glow which will stay with you for the rest of the match. Go on to escape the trial as a Survivor, or simply complete the trial as a Killer and this celebratory cosmetic is your keep.  

Community Challenges 

Dead by Daylight is all about community, and once again we’re giving our fans the chance to team up to earn exclusive outfits.  

During our 5th Anniversary event, Anniversary Crowns will be tracked at a community level with multiple shared goals. Collectively meet these goals to unlock exclusive charms and cosmetics, including outfits for David King and The Wraith. All details, updates, and codes will be shared through our Twitter and Facebook pages, so follow Dead by Daylight and never miss a beat! 

Decked Out Trials  

It wouldn’t be a Dead by Daylight anniversary if we didn’t deck out the Entity’s Realm to mark the occasion.  

From custom loading screens to the return of confetti-launching Flashlights, Med Kits, and Toolboxes, to environmental flourishes for generators, hooks, lockers, and barrels; playing during the event will feel anything but ordinary.  

Shrine of Secrets  

Our 5th anniversary is also the perfect opportunity to not only get your hands on some Perks, but to get a great deal in the process.  

Until July 13th, the Shrine of Secrets will be on a daily rotation and feature Perks from almost every single character in Dead by Daylight. Plus, every Perk will be 500 Iridescent Shards off! Got a lot of Iridescent Shards burning a hole in your pocket? Take advantage while you can! 

DAY 1:


As a thank-you for celebrating with us by playing Dead by Daylight, over the first 7 days of the event we’ll be giving away a total of 9,000 Iridescent Shards per player just for logging in. Players logging before July 15th will still be able to claim earlier login rewards, so no one misses out. These will add up to enough to purchase an entire original character, on us.  

Finally, when you first log in during the event before July 15th, you’ll receive a 500,000 Bloodpoint gift, so you’ll be able to quickly gain access to the new event items in your Bloodwebs. 


See you in The Fog,

The Dead by Daylight team.
