Called the Scorching Summer BBQ event, developers Behaviour Interactive announced the event on Friday with a post on the game’s forums saying that it begins on August 7. It’ll last from then until August 21 with new generator and hook variations giving players a special in-game currency that can be exchanged for Hillbilly and Kate cosmetics, a base Killer and DLC Survivor in Dead by Daylight.
“During our Scorching Summer BBQ event you will gain access to special generators and hooks,” the event announcement said. “Repairing the Frozen Cocktail machines will earn you Frosty Margaritas, and skewering survivors on Grill hooks will give you Survivor Chops. To spawn more Frozen Cocktail machines and Grill hooks in the map, you must burn the BBQ invitation in the Bloodweb.”
