Intro Theme

Hawkins National Laboratory is one of 20 Realms within Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo.

It was implemented into the Game alongside the release of CHAPTER 13: Stranger Things on 17 September 2019.


Overview

The Realm was inaccessible to Players for almost two years when CHAPTER 13: Stranger Things was retracted on 17 November 2021.
The Realm returned with Patch 7.3.3 on Stranger Things Day 2023 (6 November 2023).

The Realm consists of 1 Map and is set in the Hawkins laboratory complex.


Lore

The Hawkins National Laboratory was one of many federal compounds devoted to the Project MKUltra program.

While conducting mind control experiments with test subjects on the ground floor — mostly on abducted children — the underground was ripped open by an inter-dimensional gate. This rift eventually unleashed an army of creatures in Hawkins.

The authorities managed to seal off the facility, but not before the Chicago Sun-Times published an article exposing the operation and its part in the death of Hawkins High School sophomore, Barbara Holland.

The laboratory's multi-story compound still stands, a grim reminder of the disturbing events that happened there, most of which remain undisclosed except to the few who witnessed them first-hand.
