The Withering Blight was an Event in Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo that was originally scheduled to last from 22 October until 1 November 2019.

Due to unforeseen problems with the 3.3.0 Mid-Chapter Update, the Event was postponed until the 30th, meaning that the Event lasted from 30 October to 10 November 2019.

It kicked off the in-game celebrations in honour of Halloween 2019, albeit a bit late.


The Withering Blight is a Halloween-themed version of the Scorching Summer BBQ Event.

Its occurrence was leaked by data found related to the new Event in CHAPTER XIII: Stranger Things and the new Customisation Options being added during Patch 3.2.2.

It is part of the reoccurring Blight Event; its predecessor was the 2018 The Hallowed Blight Event.
