Do you remember that last year's anniversary banner had the 3 that reminded a lot of the 3 of Scream? In fact there was then the chapter with Ghostface. This year the banner linked to the fourth anniversary of Dead by Daylight presents a 4 with a golden color:
That golden number 4 is very reminiscent of another banner, that of the new Candyman film coming out this year, which has a hook with honey bee on it, which make it partly golden:
To celebrate April 1st, in the official dead by daylight discord, many rooms, many roles and also the name of the server they had been renamed, with the word "bee", for example the name of the server had become "Dead bee Daylight":
Thanks to @Mythicallic for letting me know and for these screens!
What do you think about it? You're excited to find out what the next Dead by Daylight killer will bee?
