  • 4 Clothing Packs, which add additional Customisation Options.

There are also several non-available DLCs that were exclusive to certain Streamers, Events or give-aways.


Purchasing a DLC

With the implementation of the in-game Store, in Patch 2.0.0, Players can decide whether to buy a DLC with money on the platforms' respective Stores or with Iridescent Shards IconHelp iridescentShard trimmed.png (only original Characters) or Auric Cells IconHelp auricCells.png directly from the in-game Store.

Purchasing a DLC with money will unlock an additional cosmetic Customisation Option for the Characters contained in the DLC.

Earning enough Iridescent Shards to unlock an unlicensed DLC takes approximately 35 hours of active playtime on average.[1]

Licensed DLCs

Licensed Chapter DLCs are generally locked out from purchase with Iridescent Shards.

DLC Codenames

  • As the original actor of Freddy Krueger was called Robert Englund, which sounds and is spelt closely to the country of England, the Developers labelled the in-game files relating to the A Nightmare on Elm Street™ Chapter as "England".
  • This joke continued with subsequent Chapters, with the in-game files associated to a specific Chapter now all being named after a seemingly random country in alphabetical order, with even the Character Icons being named after that scheme as XS and XK, with 'X' replaced with the initial letter of the country and 'S' and 'K' representing the Survivor and Killer respectively.
    • This chain was broken with the addition of Darkness Among Us, which was designated "Kenya", skipping the letters 'I' and 'J'.
    • Demise of the Faithful was designated "Mali", skipping the letter 'L'.
    • Ghost Face was designated "Oman", skipping the letter 'N', which was actually used to name all files associated with the Endgame Collapse as "Nepal".
    • Stranger Things was designated "Qatar", skipping the letter 'P'.
    • Cursed Legacy was designated "S", skipping the letter 'R', which was actually used to name all files associated with Charms as "Rwanda".
DLC-Files Codename
A Nightmare on Elm Street™ "England"
The SAW™ Chapter "Finland"
Curtain Call "Guam"
Shattered Bloodline "Haiti"
Darkness Among Us "Kenya"
Demise of the Faithful "Mali"
Endgame Collapse "Nepal"
Ghost Face "Oman"
Stranger Things "Qatar"
Charms "Rwanda"
Cursed Legacy


Trivia

  • DLCs containing a Survivor and a Killer and adding a new Map to the Game are labelled as Chapters. DLCs containing just a Survivor OR Killer are labelled as Paragraphs.
  • DLCs containing only Customisation options are labelled as Clothing Packs.
  • The Last Breath Chapter DLC, when originally launched, required the player to manually install the DLC, this was changed so it is now pre-installed.
  • The "Chuckles" Mask is a reference to the Trapper's BETA name.
    • It is also a reference to Chuckles the Bear from Naughty Bear.
  • When the Headcase DLC launched, it was wrongfully launched with 5 sets of exclusive DLC clothing. Those had been patched out shortly afterwards.
  • All profits made from selling the Charity Case go to the Brain & Behaviour Research Foundation.
