The Dream World is one of 6 known sub-realms to the Entity's Realm in which Dead by Daylight takes place.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Dream World is used exclusively by The Nightmare , other Killers do not have access to it.
The Dream World is on a different plane of existence to the Entity's Realm, marked by thick clouds of fog, a sky streaked with black and white, and everything being drained of colour.
The overall effect is similar to as if the Entity's Realm would be viewed through an old black-and-white television set, but with some tints of colour remaining.
Entering the Dream World[edit | edit source]
The Nightmare's mere presence in a Trial slowly lulls Survivors to sleep, a state called "micro sleep", indicated by a timer on top of their icons. Once the timer reaches 60 seconds, Survivors are fully asleep, indicated by a cloud-overlay on their icon, and enter the Dream World.
The Nightmare can force a Survivor to instantly enter the Dream World with a successful hit; additionally, his Ultra Rare Add-ons automatically force one or all Survivors to begin the Trial in the Dream World.
Dream World Effects[edit | edit source]
The Nightmare is fully visible to Survivors within the Dream World; however, The Heartbeat heard within his Terror Radius is replaced with a hummed lullaby. The lullaby is quieter than the Heartbeat and is omni-directional, making it impossible for Survivors to identify The Nightmare's position relative to them.
Survivors in the Dream World will be affected by The Nightmare's Dream Traps: Dream Snares or Dream Pallets, depending on The Nightmare's Add-ons. They are also afflicted with the Oblivious Status Effect.
Many of The Nightmare's Add-ons further penalise Survivors in the Dream World, either by hindering them directly or by empowering the Killer.
Leaving the Dream World[edit | edit source]
To escape the Dream World, Survivors must awaken from their sleepwalking state. This can be accomplished in one of five ways:
- Being woken up by an awake Survivor
- Being put on a Hook
- Failing a Generator or Healing Skill Check
- Activating Adrenaline
- Using the Alarm Clock found around the Map
Once a Survivor wakes up, they return to the Overworld and their sleep timer is reset.
If they wake up by using an Alarm Clock , they gain 30 seconds of immunity to falling asleep, during which the Micro-Sleep timer is paused (indicated by a yellow timer).
The Sleep immunity also extends to getting hit by The Nightmare's Basic Attack.
