The special Summer event first took place back in 2018 and did not return again until this year, with Behaviour instead focusing on making other events filled to the brim with new content over the years instead (notably the Anniversary, Halloween and Bone Chill winter event).

Let's take a look at what the Scorching Summer BBQ event looks like in 2023 when fans can expect it to start and end, its rewards, and how they compare to the 2018 version of the celebration.

Dead By Daylight Scorching Summer Event 2018

During the last Scorching Summer BBQ event, there were lots of ongoing festivities, ranging from challenges to free cosmetics, to in-game decorations. Some generators turn into Frozen Cocktail Machines, while hooks became Grill Hooks.

Developers also introduced the BBQ Invitation offering, which would cause more Frozen Cocktail Machines and Grill Hooks to spawn. For both survivors and killers, completing Frozen Cocktail Machines or hooking opponents on Grill Hooks respectively gives you Tokens.

You could then spend 50 Tokens each to purchase the two available cosmetic rewards, which included the Pro-Pain Hammer for The Hillbilly and Kate Denson's Free Song Bird Slip Dress.

That's all for Dead By Daylight's 2023 Scorching Summer BBQ event, including when it begins and ends, what players can expect in terms of gameplay, and rewards.
