Event Mechanics[]

Void Energy[]

The ultimate goal of the Event Mechanics is for Killers and Survivor to collect Void Energy.

Void Energy can be gained in four different ways:

  • Repairing an Esoteric Generator:
    • Repairing awards 3 Void Energy every 8 seconds.
    • A maximum of 90 Void Energy can be obtained from repairing Generators.
  • Hooking a Survivor on an Esoteric Hook:
    • Hooking awards 6 Void Energy per Hook.
    • A maximum of 18 Void Energy from hooking Survivors.
  • Destroying a PumpkinIconHelp pumpkinIconHelp pumpkinIconHelp pumpkin:
    • Destroying a Treat Pumpkin awards 3 Void Energy
    • Destroying a Neutral Pumpkin awards 6 Void Energy
    • Destroying a Trick Pumpkin awards 9 Void Energy
  • Collecting a floating Void Orb; these spawn randomly in the environment and award 3 Void Energy

Void Energy can be transferred between the Survivor and the Killer in two different ways:

  • Stunning the Killer:
    • Stunning transfers 3 Void Energy from the Killer to the Survivor that stunned them.
  • Downing Survivors:
    • Downing transfers 3 Void Energy to the Killer from the Survivor they downed.

Unstable Rifts[]

Event hauntedByDaylight2023 unstableRift

An Unstable Rift

Players can hold a maximum of 60 Void Energy at a time, after which they will no longer gain any additional Void Energy and see the Aura of a nearby Unstable Rift.
At this point, Players are encouraged to bank their Void Energy at an Unstable Rift, after which they can once again gain new Void Energy from the aforementioned interactions.

Players depositing their Void Energy into Unstable Rifts are rewarded with a +5 HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for 15 seconds.

This process is repeatable until a maximum of 30 Void Energy is banked into Unstable Rifts.

As a Killer, when the Trial ends, any Void Energy not yet deposited into an Unstable Rift will automatically be accounted for and deposited into the Sky Rift.

As a Survivor, the same will be true upon escaping the Trial.
If a Survivor dies, however, that energy will be lost.

Sky Rift[]

Each Map features a so-called "Sky Rift", a large Rift Portal up in the sky of the Map, akin to the one shown in the main Lobby during the Event, only a lot smaller.
The Sky Rift is purely decorative in nature and has no other effect than to, lore-wise, collect any remaining Void Energy Players are holding in their inventory and have not managed to deposit into Unstable Rifts before escaping the Trial (Survivor) or ending it (Killer).

Opening the Void[]

Event hauntedByDaylight2023 voidPortal

An active Void Portal

Haunted by Daylight 2023 features a new objective for both Survivors and Killers.

Interacting with Unstable Rifts and depositing Void Energy into them will eventually cause all of them to stabilise, opening a pathway into the Void itself.
Players can then enter the Void with a short interaction.

Survivors in the Void[]

Survivors, while in the Void, suffer from a permanent ExhaustionIconStatusEffects exhaustedIconStatusEffects exhaustedIconStatusEffects exhausted Status Effect and, if injured, also from the BrokenIconStatusEffects brokenIconStatusEffects brokenIconStatusEffects broken Status Effect.
If they are hooked in the Void at any point, they are teleported to another Hook outside the Void.

Survivors cannot carry any Limited Item into the Void.

The Void only remains open for a limited time.

Killers in the Void[]

Killers, while in the Void, benefit from a permanent UndetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectable Status Effect, but lose access to their Power, including Mini-Mori abilities.

Releasing Haunts[]

Releasing a Haunt

Event hauntedByDaylight2023 hauntReleased

A released Haunt

As the Void only remains open for a limited time, it is advised to release the Haunts whenever possible for a bit of help in the Trials.

When inside the Void, Players can transfer their Void Energy into a Haunt by approaching it.
Once a Haunt has fully leeched enough Void Energy to escape (12 Void Energy), they are released from the Void.

Survivor Haunts[]

Haunts released by a Survivor benefit them with a set of buffs for the next 30 seconds, which can be carried over to the Overworld:

  • Grants the EnduranceIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivor Status Effect.
  • Increases the Action speeds for Blessing, Cleansing, Healing and Unlocking by +20 %.

Additionally, there is an instantaneous effect in the Void:

  • Held Items are recharged to 50 %.

Once outside of the Void, the allied Haunt, with its Aura revealed to all Survivors, awaits temporarily to aid any approaching Survivor one more time with an effect of that Player's choosing:

  • Approach the Haunt and stay close to it for 2 seconds, after which it grants a +15 % HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for the next 3 seconds.
  • Lure the Killer into the Haunt mid-chase for a scare, which stuns the Killer for 5 seconds.

Killer Haunts[]

  • Lure a Survivor into the Haunt mid-chase for a scare, which afflicts them with a -15 % HinderedIconStatusEffects hinderedIconStatusEffects hinderedIconStatusEffects hindered Status Effect for 3 seconds.

Contesting Haunts[]
