Of course, the frightful fun doesn’t stop here, as players will notice that the winter wonderland-themed Realm is populated by some unexpected visitors.

Six adorable snowmen have been placed around the Trail grounds, all of which can be used by Survivors as prime hiding spots. Not only are these a convenient, Christmassy escape, completing different challenges while inside one will net you some exclusive rewards.

In order to unlock Dead by Daylight’s snowman rewards, you’ll need to either:

  • Play as a Survivor, and use the snowman to protect you from a Killer’s attack.
  • As a Survivor, escape through the Exit Gates in a snowman.
  • While playing as a Killer, hit a snowman while a Survivor is inside.

The prizes on offer are as follows:

Rewards Characters that can use them
Ugly Sweaters Yun-Jin Lee, Mikaela Reid, Jonah Vasquez.
Christmas Weapons The Hag, The Wraith
Frosty Eyes (a cosmetic that makes eyes glow blue) The Artist, The Trickster
