The regular mystery box reward with higher rarity tier weighting.

Added new menu and lobby music for the Winter season.

Changed the Wraith’s Wailing Bell ringing audio to play up to 24 meters instead of map wide. Survivors, if you hear the bell it means that the Wraith is already decloaking near you!
Changed the Wraith’s cloaking "woosh" sound to 40 meters, instead of infinite. Add-ons that reduced the Wraith’s Wailing Bell audio range have been re-purposed for reducing the Cloaking woosh sound. Survivors, if you hear the woosh, the Wraith is near, but you are not in as much danger as when you hear the bell ringing!
Changed the blood pools and VFX from an injured Survivor to be brighter when The Wraith is cloaked. The blood color returns to normal when uncloaked.
Cloaking is now faster. Changed speed curve to be 100% of movement speed for 95% of the curve at which it increases to 110% of the Wraith’s 4.6 movement speed. (5.06m/s). This should encourage cloaking during chases, we felt that it was rather penalizing to have a cloak reduced movement speed + a uncloak reduced movement speed.
Delay uncloaking sound by 1.5 seconds. (50% of the animation). Wraith’s, use this delay of audio to try and surprise survivors. Survivors, actively look for the Wraith’s shimmer while he is cloaked to make the most out of his decloak time/speed.
Increased the time it takes to Burn the Wraith out of invisibility with a flashlight from 1 second to 1.5.
Increased uncloaking movement speed and adjusted the uncloak movement speed curve to feel smoother and give less ground to survivors. The decloak gave a lot of room for survivors to put distance between themselves and the Wraith, with these changes Survivors should be actively looking for the wraith shimmer to get a head start.
Interacting with a locker while cloaked should force the Wraith out of cloak if he finds a survivor. If he doesn’t find anyone he should stay cloaked.
Odd Bulb has an adjusted consumption rate, from moderately (24%) to slightly (12%) increased consumption rate.
Reduced invisibility Burnout time when a survivor flashlights a cloaked Wraith from 4 seconds to 3.
Removed the quicker blind and burn modifiers from the increased flashlight beam effects against the killer, and from increased the power of the flashlight beam add-ons and items as well as simplified the text to reflect these changes(Utility Flashlight, Focus Lens, High-end Sapphire Lens, Power Bulb, Intense Halogen, Odd Bulb and TIR Optic).
The Wraith can now damage generators and destroy pallets when cloaked. Doing this will force the Wraith out of invisibility during the animation, and the terror radius will play at full and then fade the Wraith back into invisibility.
Bloodhound: Increased Tiers I and II so that all Tiers use the same blood intensity.
Shadowborn: Negative effects have been removed, FOV increased to 9/12/15 from 3/5/10.

Add-on Rarity Changes
Adjusted the "Blink" add-ons that reduce The Wraiths disappearance charge time to 12.5/50%.
Adjusted the White and Blood "Windstorm" add-ons for The Wraith’s reappearance time to 10/15%.Adjusting the uncloak movement curve, we’ve made it so The Wraith exits the uncloak at max speed instead of having to accelerate to max speed after the uncloak. This effectively maximizes the Windstorm add-ons efficiency, in compensation we have increased the time it takes to uncloak.
Adjusted the range at which the Wraith’s Wailing Bell can be heard with the "Coxcombed Clapper" add-on to 40%.
Adjusted the time it takes for The Wraith to uncloak with the "Swift Hunt" add-ons to 10/15/20%.
Changed the name of the "Ghost" Soot add-on to "Ghost" White to better fit it’s rarity.
Increased the aura reading range by 2 meters on the "All Seeing" add-ons. These are affected by other aura reading perks.
