Fourth Year Anniversary is an Event in Dead by Daylight Dead by Daylight}} that takes place between 23 June and 14 July 2020.

It kicks off the in-game celebrations for the Game's fourth Anniversary.


Overview

The Event features a new Mini-Game (since it is not a Challenge, unlike previous Events) and works akin to the Moonrise Event in terms of mechanics, with the difference that getting hooked will not remove the Crown from the Player.

I vomited on the school sign and it crashed.

A key aspect of surviving a trial is not dying.

Louis
Gameplay Programmer

Take to the stars and explore new realms in the upcoming spin-off adventure, 'Hillbilly Space Programme', coming to a sloped rock near you!.

Louis
Gameplay Programmer

When developing The Plague, we had discussions about whether to model the attack like a vomit assault rifle, a vomit flamethrower, or a vomit shotgun.
Not only did 'Vomit Assault Rifle' end up being the direction we went with, it's also a great name for a band.

Andy
Community Manager

Let there be dead by dayLIGHT!

Andy
Community Manager

How many dead cows are in the game?

  • *Remi's message after converting from ASCII values: A winner is you.

Challenge

Golden Crowns

Each Trial will spawn a Crown Pillar with a Crown hovering above it, emitting a sound close-by.
Interacting with the Crown will grant you a special Score Event "Crowned" and dissolve it into the Character, giving them a special visual effect emanating from their torso for the remainder of the Trial.

The Crown Pillar will randomly despawn and respawn throughout the Map at an interval of between 90-120 seconds, giving each Player a chance to eventually get their own Crown as the Trial progresses.
There is only ever a single Crown Pillar at once on the Map.

Successfully finishing the Trial (escaping for Survivors) with a Crown will unlock its corresponding Cosmetic piece.

Rewards

Any original Survivor or Killer successfully finishing a Trial while having interacted with a Crown Pillar will unlock the "Crown of Entity the Great" (later renamed to "Crown of the Entity"), a special version of a Character's default Head cosmetic:


Log-in Rewards

Logging into the Game during the Anniversary Event will unlock pieces of a special Anniversary Outfit for Claudette Morel and The Deathslinger Deathslinger}} and two Anniversary Charms:
