Good day to you Survivors and Killers! Today we’re patching the game in preparation for the Halloween Chapter which is soon to be released. Along with paving the way to the DLC we’re also introducing some cool new features and fixes for everyone to enjoy.

Shrine of Secret and Iridescent Shards
Even though it won’t activate until later this month, the Shrine of Secret and the Iridescent Shards are making their debut in this patch.

In the Shrine of Secrets, you are able to purchase Teachable perks using a new currency named Iridescent Shards. Each week, 4 teachable perks will be available to purchase. Every 7 days, a new rotation of teachable perks will be chosen at random from the pool of all the unique perks in the game. Act fast if you want to collect them as no one knows how much time it’ll take before they reappear. Here is a bit more information on how the system works:
  • Shrine of Secret perks are purchased with Iridescent Shards only.
  • Iridescent Shards are earned by playing Ranked matches, shards are not earned in the Kill Your Friends mode.
  • When a perk is purchased from the Shrine of Secrets, it is removed from the market, but not replaced until the end of the rotation.
  • All perks in the market are “Teachable”. This means that purchasing it unlocks it for the Bloodweb of every Survivor or Killer.
  • If a player already has unlocked one of the perks available for purchase, buying this perk again from the Shrine of Secrets will instead grant 25k Bloodpoints.
  • All players/characters have the same perk rotation.
We’re excited about the Shrine of Secrets and are looking forward to reading your comments about it.

See you in the Fog!

1.2.1 Patch Notes
Survivors and killers, we are happy to introduce exciting new content in this patch. The new location and the obsession mechanic changes the dynamic of how we’re used to play the game. Note that following content is accessible and free to everyone.

FEATURES & CONTENT
Content – Added a new location (Haddonfield)
Content – Added a new map for Haddonfield (Lampkin Lane)

Obsession Gameplay
In 1.2.1 we’re introducing game mechanics built around what most homicidal maniacs have: an Obsession. When a survivor or a killer plays an item, add-on, perk or offering that triggers this rule, one survivor is tagged as the killer obsession for the match. Here is more information on how the Obsession is assigned and how it is shown in game:
  • When a killer or a survivor equip an Obsession item, add-on, perk or offering an Obsession is assigned for that match.
  • If no Obsession item, add-on, perk or offering is present in the match there is no Obsession.
  • If a killer has an Obsession perk or addon and no survivors have an Obsession perk equipped the Obsession is assigned randomly.
  • If a survivor has an Obsession perk they will have priority on being the Obsession.
  • If multiple survivors have Obsession perks the Obsession will be randomly assigned between those with Obsession perks.
  • The Obsession and the Killer have the Obsession highlighted in the survivor status HUD. The other survivors do not have an indication of who the Obsession is.
  • The Obsession gameplay is dependent on which perks are being used in that match. Check out the new Myers and Laurie perks to see the different Obsession gameplays.

The Obsession is basically a condition which triggers various situational effects. Will you kill your Obsession first or will you keep the best for last? Will you make the ultimate sacrifice and choose to be the obsession?

See you in the Fog!

The Black Splinter
The black splinter is a new type of black offering that allows you to try out the paid Content. Here is more info on the black splinter:
  • There is a new offering that can be found on all Killers’ Bloodwebs if you do not own the Halloween DLC.
  • The Black Splinter gives you the opportunity to play Michael Myers in Ranked play.
  • You cannot use the Black Splinter in the mode Kill Your Friends.
  • Bloodpoints and Iridescent Shards earned during the use of the Black Splinter are awarded as usual.

Welcome to the Blood Hunt!
During the Blood Hunt the Entity rewards you with double Bloodpoints!
The Blood Hunt starts on Friday the 18th at Midnight (00:00 UTC) and ends on Tuesday the 22nd at Midnight (00:00 UTC).

Don’t miss this opportunity, especially since it’s your last chance to get the special prestige outfits (see below for more info).

See you in the fog.


Updated Progression & Legacy Prestige
Something is changing in the Bloodweb.

People of the fog,
On November 24th, changes to the progression will be integrated and available to you. This revised progression is put in place to speed up the progression of your characters dramatically.

  • Reduced amount of nodes in the Bloodweb for faster leveling up.
  • Revised perk appearances to allow multiple perks on one Bloodweb.
  • On a Bloodweb with multiple perks, carefully choose which perk you want as the Entity will always eat the other one.
  • Other balances such as odds of appearance and content distribution.

Note that you won’t lose any progress on your current Bloodwebs. You’ll see the changes only once you level up and a new Bloodweb is generated.

As promised, here is your one week last call to get your character prestiged to unlock this special prize. The Deadline is on November 24th 0:00 UTC. Here is how it’s going to work:
  • For each prestige unlocked on a character, receive one Entity Touched prestige.
  • The Trapper, The Wraith, The Hillbilly and The Nurse are eligible for the Entity Touched prestige.
  • Dwight, Claudette, Meg, Jake and Nea are eligible for the Entity Touched prestige.

Have fun and take full advantage of the Blood Hunt to get these unique customization pieces!
