The Dream World is one of 6 known sub-realms to the Entity's Realm in which Dead by Daylight Dead by Daylight}} takes place.


Overview[edit | edit source]

The Dream World is used exclusively by The Nightmare Nightmare}}, other Killers do not have access to it.

The Dream World is on a different plane of existence to the Entity's Realm, marked by thick clouds of fog, a sky streaked with black and white, and everything being drained of colour.

The overall effect is similar to as if the Entity's Realm would be viewed through an old black-and-white television set, but with some tints of colour remaining.

Entering the Dream World[edit | edit source]

The Nightmare's mere presence in a Trial slowly lulls Survivors to sleep, a state called "micro sleep", indicated by a timer on top of their icons. Once the timer reaches 60 seconds, Survivors are fully asleep, indicated by a cloud-overlay on their icon, and enter the Dream World.

The Nightmare can force a Survivor to instantly enter the Dream World with a successful hit; additionally, his Ultra Rare Add-ons Add-ons}} automatically force one or all Survivors to begin the Trial in the Dream World.

Dream World Effects[edit | edit source]

The Nightmare is fully visible to Survivors within the Dream World; however, The Heartbeat heard within his Terror Radius is replaced with a hummed lullaby. The lullaby is quieter than the Heartbeat and is omni-directional, making it impossible for Survivors to identify The Nightmare's position relative to them.

Survivors in the Dream World will be affected by The Nightmare's Dream Traps': Dream Snares or Dream Pallets. They are also afflicted with the Oblivious Oblivious}} Status Effect.

Many of The Nightmare's Add-ons further penalise Survivors in the Dream World, either by hindering them directly or by empowering the Killer.

Leaving the Dream World[edit | edit source]

To escape the Dream World, Survivors must awaken from their sleepwalking state. This can be accomplished in one of five ways:

Once a Survivor wakes up, they return to the Overworld, and their sleep timer is reset and put on a cool-down of 30 seconds before the micro-sleep timer is re-initiated.
