Dead by Daylight Reveals April Fools' Day Limited Time Mode

Dead by Daylight's My Little Oni mode is only available for a couple days!

Over the last few years, video game companies have been upping their game when it comes to April Fools' Day. While April 1st still sees a lot of fake announcements, developers are increasingly using the day as an excuse to reveal special themes and limited time events. Dead by Daylight is doing just that this year with "My Little Oni," a new event that's live right now, and will only be available through April 3rd at 6 a.m. PT. During the event, players will be shrunk to microscopic size, and they'll have to dodge attacks from The Oni, who will be towering over them. 

A trailer for the event can be found below. 

The smaller player size means that it will be a lot harder to access just about anything else on the map. There are no items, chests, or pallets that can be used to help them out. Instead, players can only access generators as a means of escape. As a result, things should be a lot more difficult! Interestingly enough, the fact that this was announced on April Fools' Day has led to a lot of speculation that the mode doesn't actually exist! However, Behaviour Interactive has confirmed that this is an actual thing that's happening this year, but players will have to act fast if they want to get in on the festivities!
