On July 19, 2022, Dead by Daylight’s official YouTube channel released a trailer showcasing the new available outfits that were inspired by the anime Attack on Titan.

For those who are unfamiliar with the gameplay in the survival horror multiplayer online game – it’s a one-versus-four game in which one player takes on the role of a savage killer and the other four play as survivors.

The killer must hunt down and catch each survivor before sacrificing them to a malevolent force known as the Entity by impaling them on hooks. Meanwhile, the survivors must try to avoid being caught and fix five generators to open the exit gates.

The Attack on Titan outfit collection allows survivors to dress up as eight familiar cast members of the Survey Corps or become killers in the form of two Titans. Basically, the original Dead by Daylight characters get to cosplay as Attack on Titan characters.

Which killer costumes are available through the in-game store?

Dead by Daylight decided to highlight two generations of the Yamaoka bloodline – Kazan Yamaoka, The Oni, was reimagined as The Armored Titan, and Rin Yamaoka, The Spirit, was reimagined as the War Hammer Titan. The Spirit’s War Hammer Titan features being impaled by several Thunder Spears, which were a weapon known for turning the tide against the battle against the Titans in the anime.

Five new charms have been added that can be unlocked by fulfilling different conditions. Charms are special customization pieces for Survivors and Killers that were introduced to Dead by Daylight in Patch 3.3.1 and first announced during the 3 Year Anniversary Developer Stream a few months prior.

How do I unlock the new charms?

Conditions to unlock the charms are as follows:

  • Cadet Corps Crest Charm – Logging on during the Mid-Chapter release or purchasing any Attack on Titan outfit after the release of Chapter 25
  • Scout Regiment Corps Crest Charm – unlocking any 3 Attack on Titan outfits
  • Military Police Regiment Crest Charm – unlocking any 2 Attack on Titan outfits
  • Garrison Regiment Crest Charm – unlocking any Attack on Titan Survivor outfit
  • Wall Titan Charm: Unlocking any attack on Titan Killer outfit

What do the outfits look like?

We dove into the backstories of our characters in order to ensure their outfits were representative of the original Attack on Titan characters and best matched their personalities and values. For example, it made sense to pair Historia with Kate since both girls are known for being kind. Kate wears Historia’s cloak, which she was seen wearing when she visited an orphanage in the anime, and represents her compassion for others.
