Dead By Daylight Twisted Masquerade 2023 Start Time

Dead by Daylight's 7th anniversary will begin in June. While the actual event might be in June, the 2023 celebration will last a whole month, with each week honoring a different 2 years of Dead by Daylight's history.

Twisted Masquerade In-Game Celebration Changes

While the Twisted Masquerade masks are back, the way to get them is a little different than in the past. Previously, players could grab their Invitations in the match, and either escape with it as survivors or finish the game as killer to earn a cosmetic reward. Once per escape or finished match as survivor or killer respectively, you'd immediately earn the cosmetic.

This year, though, the Invitation can also be used for another purpose. Instead of earning a cosmetic immediately upon grabbing the Invitation, you'll instead get a Charge. Killers and survivors alike will be able to activate a special power for killers after grabbing it, or hold on to it until the end of the match in order to unlock the cosmetic. 

Grabbing the Invitation gives killers the ability to reduce the impact of a stun, remotely break a pallet or breakable wall, and even inflict Exposed during Bloodlust. For survivors, they can either spawn a pallet to use or hide their aura from the killer using the Invitaton's charges.

Dead by Daylight's 7th anniversary celebration is kicking off soon, so stay tuned for more info and updates as the event goes live!
