The Eternal Blight is an Event in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png that occurred between 21 October and 4 November 2020.

It kicked off the in-game celebrations in honour of Halloween 2020.


Overview

The Eternal Blight is a type of Halloween-themed in-game Event, which temporarily added new Objectives to the Gameplay of Killers and Survivors.

It was part of the reoccurring Blight Event; its predecessors were the 2018 The Hallowed Blight Event and the 2019 The Withering Blight Event.


In-Game Changes

The Event Items and Add-ons could be found in newly generated Bloodwebs IconHelp bloodweb.png and the former also in Chests IconHelp chests.png located throughout the Trial Grounds.

The Event Offering would increase the amount of Blighted Hooks and Generators that spawned in the Trial Grounds and increase the Bonus Bloodpoints IconHelp bloodpoints.png one received from interacting with them.
Not burning the Offering would still grant Bonus Bloodpoints, but fewer.
