The spooky season of Halloween isn’t just an exciting time of year outside of video games, but also an interesting season to explore inside of games. Online titles have been known to hold annual events around Halloween-themed October that many gamers have enjoyed playing every year.
These Halloween events usually present players with new game modes to try or new additions to their favorites, as well as the chance to unlock spooky new skins that are only available for a limited time. With so many online games hosting events, these titles have particularly awesome Halloween events for players to enjoy.
8/8 For honor
Recently For honor crossed with Dead in broad daylight in a Halloween event called Survivors of the Fog. This event was very exciting for gamers, especially for those who also enjoyed playing multiplayer survival horror, as the game mode added to For Honor is based on how Dead in broad daylight is played.
In this game mode called Survivors, players are always against each other in a player versus player environment of four on each team. It takes place on a map themed like the Dead BY Daylight environment, then players must defeat the other team while avoiding the super-powered Trapper AI that has replaced the minions. Many hope the event will return this year.
7/8 World of Warcraft
Halloween is also celebrated across Azeroth in World of Warcraft. This in-game event is called Hallow’s End, and it’s not just celebrated in one day, but takes place over multiple days. It’s celebrated through tricks or treats, apple pops, and the chance to defeat the Headless Horseman for epic loot.
Each inn the player visits World of Warcraft will reward them with tricky treats that can be used to purchase items from event merchants. These can also be obtained by completing the various daily quests available in the event hubs.
6/8 sea of thieves
Even pirates can celebrate Halloween in sea of thieves with the Feast of the Damned, to provoke their fury. In addition to collecting a different colored flame that a player can light their ship’s lanterns with that symbolizes how they died, the Pirate Lord encourages players to send threats across the seas.
By eliminating undead threats in sea of thieves like taking control of a Skeleton Fort or defeating a Ghost Ship, Armada players will earn favor with the Bilge Rats. Each week, players will receive a note telling them which activities will give them even more favor, as they will earn so much attraction with the party that they will unlock to wear the Wicked Web cosmetics.
Like another Halloween massive multiplayer title in the elder scrolls online can be celebrated during the Witches Festival. This spooky event grants players a Cauldron Souvenir which, when used during the event, not only temporarily turns the player into a skeleton, but also rewards them with an experience bonus.
Players can unlock a wide variety of armor styles, emotes, and other unique recipes during the event while completing different dungeons, dungeons, and party leaders. Not to mention defeating the event-specific boss called Crowborne Horror which also offers exclusive rewards.
4/8 Apex Legends
Naturally, battle royales like Apex Legends also have their Halloween events, including exciting new modes as well as altercations over maps many remember. During the month of October, players can get involved in Fight or Fright.
This four-week event begins on October 4 by showcasing the Shadow Royale. Not only are the maps completely blacked out to add to the spooky vibe, any slain Legend will return in a shadow form that can revive their other teammates. They are easy to kill in this form but will keep respawning until their entire team is defeated.
3/8 Call of Duty: Warzone
Added Ghosts of Verdansk game mode to Call of Duty: Warzone during the Haunting event which takes place around the Halloween season. This game mode is similar to Zombie Royale, which some players may have also experienced. Taking part in a nighttime version of the Verdansk map, a total of 102 players are deployed hoping to survive as humans, but if killed they will become a ghost.
As a ghost, a player can only defeat humans highlighted to them who are incredibly weak to all shots from humans, although if they get three kills they could turn back to human. Human players are also scared as they would receive jump alerts as their fear meter increases, making this an interesting game mode.
2/8 Destiny 2
As a long-time Halloween event, Destiny 2 provides new armor for each Guardian class each year that takes place in a different theme. This year’s theme was voted on by the community at the beginning of the year with many great options, but in the end the Dino team won.
Along with the new costumes, players also received three terrifying new stories to follow with a fireteam of friends as they explore the mystery of the Haunted Sectors. As Exo and Vex merged to create something completely different and horrifying and many more stories to explore.
Although the origin servers of Surveillance were terminated and replaced by Monitor 2Blizzard has confirmed that its Halloween event is here to stay and will return during the Halloween season for players to enjoy.
This means that the PVE mode Junkenstein’s Revenge will also be making a return so players can complete it with friends as they try to stop waves of enemies from entering the castle. The store will also provide Halloween skins that can be purchased for many heroes.
