Dead by Daylight's Halloween Event 2021: The Midnight Grove



Join Dead by Daylight to celebrate Halloween in classic Dead by Daylight style with The Midnight Grove Event Tome.

From October 21st to November 11th, The Midnight Grove event welcomes new Survivor Mikaela Reid into the Fog with special content set to fill the Entity’s Realm with rewards, challenges, an extra-eerie atmosphere, and special stories written by Mikaela herself – all for a very limited time.

Check out The Midnight Grove Trailer below, then read on for all the event details.


Halloween is all about atmos-fear. Logging in during The Midnight Grove event will give players a chance to celebrate the season surrounded by special themed hooks and generators, themed items available through the Bloodweb, spooky load screens, and a creepy Halloween lobby.


Scattered throughout trials for the duration of The Midnight Grove Event, players will notice new interactable jack-o-lanterns around the map. Smash them to complete specific Event Tome challenges, earn Bloodpoints, and roll the dice for a small trick or treat each time in the form a minor speed buff/debuff. Both Survivors and Killers can find and interact with these pumpkins.

Venturing into the trials to complete challenges across The Observer’s Auris Web will also unlock a special series of scary stories written by Mikaela Reid for the Endless Halloween Festival.


The Midnight Grove also brings with it special outfits and charms that can ONLY be earned or unlocked over the 2-week duration of the event


  • Mikaela Reid: Witching Hour Outfit
    The witchy costume Mikaela wore on-stage at the Endless Halloween Festival shortly before disappearing into the Fog.
  • The Doctor: The Transplant Outfit
    The results of a challenging experiment that brought The Doctor to the brink of madness.


  • Black Cat
  • Neacrow 
  • Bing Bong Boo 


  • To help make sure we see you in the Fog this Halloween season, we’re serving up a sinister one-time login reward of 666,666 Bloodpoints for anyone brave enough to step into the Entity’s Realm at any point during the Midnight Grove Event.

Tome 9: CRESCENDO  features three brand-new spooky tales from the world of Dead by Daylight. For the first time ever a pair of those stories will intersect, presenting two very different perspectives of a single chilling event. Join All-Kill's The Trickster and Yun-Jin lee as an abduction on the eve of a violent storm creates two distinct journeys that will put their relationship to the test.

The Observer’s Auris web also features brand-new Halloween-themed challenges as part of The Midnight Grove.

Dead by Daylight is also adding a few extra treats for you to enjoy this October!

  • The Trickster Instagram Filter:
    Available October 25th
  • Mikaela Reid Instagram Filter:
    UPDATE: Available October 27th 

Our latest Survivor comes complete with her own spooky style that sets her apart from everyone else in the Fog. Now, thanks to our new Instagram filter you can also rock Mikaela’s signature shock of thick red hair and witchy Halloween hat – all without having to put in any of the actual work. And since not everyone is born with this much style, we’re also adding a filter for The Trickster designed to help anyone live out their K-pop dreams in a snap. 

Want to get more familiar with the characters behind the new filters? Learn everything there is to know about Mikaela and the Trickster.

This is one black cat you’ll want to see cross your path. Starting today, a special Halloween keychain will be available for purchase in the Dead by Daylight store. Identical to the new charm also being released in-game, the keychain features a classic black cat with piercing yellow eyes, wearing a witch’s hat in the spirit of the season.
