Some Perks and Add-ons can trigger the Obsession game play. If this happens, one Survivor is selected to be the Killer's Obsession for the trial. The Killer and the Obsession will see the claws of The Entity appearing around the Obsession's Status Icon, which is invisible though for the other three Survivors. The only way for them to know if there has been an Obsession in the trial is, when the Obsession dies or escapes, revealing the claws to all Players.
The effects of Obsession depend on the Perks and Add-ons that triggered it.
