The widely popular horror-survival title is set to have an exciting October this year with the announcement of the in-game Halloween event named “Haunted by Daylight.” The event is going to kick off very soon as players will be able to unlock a lot of rewards.
Here’s everything you need to know about Dead by Daylight’s new Tome and Halloween event.

Dead by Daylight Tome 13: Malevolence has a release date set for Wednesday, October 12, 2022, and the time countdown has started. The new Tome is likely dropping at 8 AM PT/ 11 AM ET/ 4 PM BST this Wednesday.
The launch day has been confirmed by BeHaviour Interactive’s Haunted by Daylight celebrations overview. Whereas, the start times are a prediction considering past launches.
For starters, a Tome features twisted new tales from the world of Dead by Daylight and brings Rifts that unlock incredible rewards. You need to complete challenges to unlock both.
BeHaviour has confirmed that the upcoming Rift starts survivor Mikaela Reid and killer Ghostface as its two prime characters. There will be a free and a premium track to progress as usual. However, the free one now includes a total of 500,000 Bloodpoints.
DBD Tome 13: Malevolence Characters and Skins
BeHaviour has confirmed that the main characters for Dead by Daylight Tome 13: Malevolence will be Ghostface (killer) and Mikaela Reid (survivor). The new Tome will offer “glimpses into the memories of The Ghost Face and Mikaela Reid, shining a light on their lives before The Fog.”
Coming to the skins, Ghostface is going to have four new masks. All four of the new masks were previously leaked by DBDLeaks alongside the release date of DBD Tome 13: Malevolence. There is also one skin for Mikaela Reid.
Along with these, there are going to be the following outfits and charms that won the previous Community Outfit Contest:
- Outfits: Yui Kimura’s Midnight Techwear designed by AIPHELIX, and The Artist’s Fallen Angel designed by AspriinDbd.
- Charms: For Killer – Have You Seen This Horse? by PotatoGun13. For Survivors — Bloodpoint Gummies by Maomi.
