The Archives 
 
The Archives offer new goals for players, and allow for a more narrative experience further expanding the Dead by Daylight universe.

There are currently 5 different Tomes (every tome includes 4 different stages), that each offer an exclusive Charm that can be upgraded 3 times after you finish and earn the first stage. 
 
NOTE that some of these missions are bugged and cannot be completed!! Inform yourself which tomes are playable in your current patch before you waste time trying to get a certain charm that cannot be earned due to bugs.

Play as Survivor 
 
The following screenshots show you the 4 options you have while playing survivor. Because of the simplicity i will not write much about each of them. 
 
You can choose a character. There’s a total of 24 Survivors, each with their own 3 perks that are exclusive to them until you reach level 40 or buy them in the shrine of secrets in the shop. Some of them are dlc characters which means you’ll have to buy them either on steam or in the ingame shop (If they’re not from a licensed dlc for 9000 iridescent shards).

In the inventory you can choose items+add ons, offerings and perks. 
You’ll lose items if you die or use them up. Offerings can only be used once and have a certain impact on the game. Perks are abilites for your character that help you survive in the mist and choose your playstyle to some degree.

The bloodweb is your characters shop. You can use Bloodpoints to progress in the web and level up your character. You can buy items, add-ons and perks in there and also open up the other perk slots for your character. If you reach level 50 in the web you can prestige your character (a total of 3 times) and earn a special bloody skin part every time you do so. The highest level you can achieve is 150.

In the customization you can use charms and choose skins that will change your appearance.

Play as Killer 
 
The killers option looks pretty much the same as the survivor site. 
 
You can choose a Killer. There’s a total of 22 Killers, each with their own 3 perks that are exclusive to them until you reach level 40 or buy them in the shrine of secrets in the shop. Some of them are dlc characters which means you’ll have to buy them either on steam or in the ingame shop (If they’re not from a licensed dlc for 9000 iridescent shards).

In the inventory you can choose add ons for your killer ability, offerings and perks. 
Offerings and add-ons can only be used once and have a certain impact on the game and your killers ability. Perks are abilites for your killer that help you kill the survivors and choose your playstyle to some degree.

The bloodweb is your killers shop. You can use Bloodpoints to progress in the web and level up your character. You can buy add-ons and perks in there and also open up the other perk slots for your killer. If you reach level 50 in the web you can prestige your character (a total of 3 times) and earn a special bloody skin part every time you do so. The highest level you can achieve is 150.

Custom Game 
 
The custom game mode or "Kill your friends" as it was called in the past, is a game mode that includes a maximum of 5 premates. One being the killer and 4 other survivors. Every perk, item, add-on and offering is available for everybody. 
 
NOTE that killers and survivors you haven’t unlocked/bought yet aren’t available until you buy the dlc on steam or spend 9000 iridescent shards in the ingame shop (non dlc characters only). 
 
Store 
 
In the shop you can buy skins and killers aswell as survivors. It also includes the "Shrine of secrets" where you’re able to buy 4 different perks for 2000 iridescent shards. The perks that are offered are character exclusive, which means that they’re otherwise only available if you level the character up to level 40 or play the character him-/herself. The sortiment changes every week. 
 
NOTE that buying a perk in the shrine of secret only means that it will be available in your survivors or killers bloodweb. When or on what character you get the perk still depends on luck. 
 
The auric cells are the ingame currency besides the iridescent shards. You can only buy them with real money and spent them on dlc’s, skins or certain characters.
