Dead by Daylight launches Moonlight Burrow event for Lunar New Year

Dead by Daylight

Behaviour Interactive released their yearly Lunar New Year event earlier this week on Dead By Daylight.

This year’s event is aptly called “Moonlight Burrow” as it’s the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

The new event features in-game challenges and a slew of new cosmetics with a Chinese or rabbit theme. You can read the event details below:


Though the Entity’s Realms are known for their atmosphere of pervading dread, that’s not to say celebration is entirely unwelcome. For the duration of the Moonlight Burrow Event, Generators, Hooks, and the Exit Gates will be adorned with Lunar-themed decorations.


The Red Envelope is a Lunar Event tradition, and once again Players can find these limited-time Offerings in the Bloodweb.

Upon burning a Red Envelope Offering, a Red Envelope viewable to all players will spawn in the Trial. For players who burn Red Envelopes, the Aura of their respective Envelopes will be visible to them.

The owner can interact with their Envelope it to reveal it. Upon doing so, a sound effect will be heard throughout the trial and the Envelope’s aura will be revealed to all players.

An Envelope can be opened and claimed by another player. When an Envelope is claimed, its owner receives a reward of 5000 Bloodpoints, and the recipient receives a randomized number of additional Bloodpoints. Note that this number can vary, and with a bit of luck it can be quite the haul. The Envelope’s owner will also receive a Lunar Event Reward listed below . Collect all 10!


The Paper Lantern is a new interactable object. It spawns during a Trial at an unused Totem spot and can be interacted with by both Killer and Survivor.

Upon interacting with a Paper Lantern, Players will receive a set of buffs for a brief duration: increased Haste movement speed and increased Vaulting speed. In other words – run, rabbit, run.


In celebration of the Lunar New Year, we’re dropping the Moonlight Burrow Collection with new Very Rare Outfits for Vittorio and Feng Min, both of which will be available in the Dead by Daylight in-game store on January 24th:

  • Vittorio Toscano – Auspicious Apparel
  • Feng Min – Down The Rabbit Hole


The Dead by Daylight Moonlight Burrow event ends on February 7.

Dead by Daylight is available now on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, and iOS. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
