Haunted By Daylight 2023 Start Time & End Date

Haunted by Daylight 2023 will begin 18 October and end in early November, according to the game's Year 8 Roadmap, which lists an event between these dates.

Last year's event - during which players could collect Void Energy - took place from 13 October to 3 November 2022, so we could expect that this event would take place during a similar timeframe.

Haunted By Daylight 2023: Gameplay

Esoteric Generators & Hooks

Returning for 2023 Haunted by Daylight Event are the decorative Esoteric Generators and Esoteric Hooks, which will grant survivors and killers respectively extra points for interacting with them. Players will also need to interact with these objectives to complete event Challenges in the Event Tome.

Haunted Boons And Traps

Also active during this event will be a new gameplay feature called "Haunted Boons," as well as possibly "Haunted Traps" for killers.
