Dead By Daylight's latest update is now live and new survivor Ash Williams isn't the only notable addition. That's because players who also follow specific streamers can now engage in Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenges and earn Emblems.
Here's how the Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenges work.
Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenge
Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenges are available through the Amazon GameOn Tournament Organizer Twitch Extension. 50 streamers actively engaged in the community, called Fog Whisperers, can now set up their own Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenge and share it with their Twitch viewers via a code generated in-game, upon creation. Streamers can set up the start and end date as well as the number of available tries in their challenge.
Viewers jumping into any Fog Whisperer's Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenge receive Emblems based on their performance upon completing matches. Each Emblem has a specific number of points attached to it. The scoring system is the same for both Survivors and Killers and points can only be obtained in ranked play.
The player with the highest cumulative score wins the Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenge. A player can join up to ten existing challenges but can only earn points in the one challenge they're currently participating in. The "Participating" status applies to whichever challenge you're playing so, as long as they're active, you can jump between multiple ones. There currently don't seem to be any rewards involved, aside from the satisfaction gained from playing alongside your favorite streamer and their community.
The Leaderboards for each Dead by Daylight Twitch Challenge can be followed on the broadcaster's Twitch channel. It's worth noting that the mode is labeled as Beta because developer Behaviour Digital plans to build on the current base in the months to come, based on player feedback. The developer has also answered a number of issues that might crop up in a post on its website.
