- 5th Year Anniversary Crowns are only unlockable for original Characters up to CHAPTER 20.
Licensed Characters may collect them for bonus Bloodpoints, but will be unable to unlock them as a Cosmetic piece.
Each Trial will spawn a Crown Pillar with a Crown hovering above it, emitting a sound close-by.
Interacting with the Crown will grant Players a special Score Event "Crowned" and dissolve it into the Character, giving them a special visual effect emanating from their torso for the remainder of the Trial.
The Crown Pillar will randomly despawn and respawn throughout the Map at an interval of between 90-120 seconds, giving each Player a chance to eventually get their own Crown as the Trial progresses.
There is only ever a single Crown Pillar at once on the Map.
Successfully finishing the Trial as Killer or escaping as Survivor with a Crown will unlock its corresponding Cosmetic piece.
Anniversary Community Challenges
During the Fifth Year Anniversary Stream, Developers also announced the return of Community Challenges from the 1 Year Anniversary, which will reward Players with exclusive Cosmetics, unique Outfits for The Wraith and David King , and 2 exclusive Charms .
