Destructoid's Massive Halloween Round-up

11:00 AM on 10.26.2012 // Dale North

Halloween-related game events and content

[Update: Even more Halloween content has been added!]

In the week or so before Halloween every year, game makers like to promote their wares with themed events, items, downloadable content and more. This year is no exception, with plenty of treats to hand out to the kiddies. We've rounded up every Halloween-related game event or content we could find for you in one handy list. 

If there's something we've missed or something you would like added, please let us know.

[cue coyotes howling and chains rattling]

Guild Wars 2 (NCSoft) -- You can actually go trick-or-treating in the latest update. Halloween-themed crafting recipes are available, and Tyria is decorated for the season. New items, like costumes, minis, and tonics, will be available to celebrate the season. Act Two of the Halloween event kicks off later today.

Battlefield Heroes (EA) -- Six Halloween costumes, two new pets, and eight new demonic weapons are available. One, the Doom Skull, launches flaming skulls! 

Rock of Ages PC (Atlus) -- The game has been discounted 75 percent for a limited time. A Halloween-themed update gives you a Ghost boulder avatar with neat cloth physics. You'll mow down themed enemies as well. 

Atlus-o-Weenie -- Atlus' yearly costume contest is still on-going, with plenty of really great submissions already logged. If you're not going to enter, at least go and look at the cosplay.

Pangya: Tomahawk -- The greatest golf game ever has a new Mr. Spooky hat to earn during the Halloween event. Gather candy boxes from different courses to turn them in for Halloween gear. Also, a new set of rare clubs can be earned.

Project Blackout -- Project Blackout has some new Halloween-themed items and weapons. A new map, too. 

Elsworld -- This MMO gets a Halloween-themed dungeon where enemies have pumpkin heads. Also, grim reapers can randomly appear, so watch out. Finally, a grim reaper pet is available.

Dokuro (GungHo) -- A Chalk Master Fan Art Contest ends at midnight on Halloween.  Chalk-style drawings of Dokuro, the Princess, or others could win artwork from the original creators.  Details can be found here.

League of Legends -- Elise, Hecarim, Maokai and Twisted Fate can undergo a haunted makeover. Wards will have a "spooky look" in-game. Sinister Skins, Ward Skins and Summoner Icons to welcome the Halloween season.

Indie Royale's 5-game Halloween Bundle -- Nice round-up includes the five-episode season of Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse, horror game Home, Pathologic, MacGuffin's Curse, and EvilQuest.

The Secret World (Funcom) -- A new storyline takes players to Stonehenge to take on the Cat God. New in-game costumes for playing dress up are also available. A server-wide competition will let you earn new costumes and pets.

Shadowland Online -- Farm pumpkin seeds in God's Continent for a chance to get pumpkin fragments. Fragments exchange for limited-time items that increase your offensive and defensive skills. 

BigHead BASH -- Halloween versions of favorites are taking over for the season in this online multiplayer deathmatch. There's Cheshire Pumpkin Head, as well as Halloween versions of Cat and Monkey. In the combat arena you'll also find four new toys.

Rift (Trion) -- An event called The Monster Mash lets players choose to become a ghost or were wolf in a supernatural conflict.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online -- A new patch pumps this shooter up with Halloween content.  Expect Halloween skins and 6 Halloween weapons,  which will only be available for a limited period. 

The Grinns Tale -- This RPG is in closed beta right now, but it's getting a bunch of Halloween goodies, like new items and decorations. A guy named Halloween Jack is packing Frankencookies. Also, monsters are dropping mystery boxes that contain pixie dust and other special items.

Crazy Fairies -- Halloween content comes by way of boss swaps that have turned the fairies into spooky ghouls. A new themed quest lets players decorate their homes for the season.

Tera -- An NPC pumpkin by the name of Gorudo wants pies in his face. Players will earn pies by killing monsters. Oh, and each pie gives a chance to win items like Halloween-themed masks. Also, in a new dungeon, players must protect baskets of candy from monsters. Do so and nab some Halloween cake, which unlocks rare items.

Steam sale -- Valve has unleashed "monster savings" on over 80 titles in their Spooky Spectacular sale.  Some of these games are 75 percent off, and many are under the $10 mark. Nice.

I wonder how far the show would be taken out of context if the lyrics were "Go, Go Power Rangers, you Mighty Morphine Power Rangers."

Happy late thanksgiving Dtoid. I played Doodle God and Murasaki Baby on PSVita, and am now Achievement grinding in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious on Xbox One. Super easy 1000G, I need it.

This thanksgiving, give thanks for the fact that your family wasnt 1 of the 3 to have picked out a wasp filled turkey, buying a meal and becoming a meal. Next year, may not bring such.....dissapointing results.

So I'm pretty sure you all should be giving thanks to Nekro. For he is the one true perfect being. Be thankful that your lives have been blessed by the addition of a Nekro. For that is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Dtoid! Here's hoping you didn't fall off a chair while hanging Christmas lights and bash your shin and foot into the concrete like I did!

Listening to Pokémon SoulSilver OST while doing some college work. Suddenly I feel a great amount of guilty taking over me for loosing my PokéWalker 2 years ago... :(

Ok you thanksgiving motherfuckers. 5 favourite Arcade games (as in coin-op) No order necessary. Go!
Lawman avatarLawman
Happy Turkeygeddon everyone! I'd like to spend it playing something, but I'm too busy drinking instead. Alcohol is better. Alcohol mixed with games is best, but unfortunately, I'm a little too lost to the world for that right now!

I've got to try Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes. Mostly because I loved pocket god when it came out. Great memories

I intended to say something important and relevant to how pretty Atelier Shallie Plus looks on the Vita but then I got this annoying sudden nosebleed [img][/img]

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Happy #Darksiders2 day-I mean Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Shinta avatarShinta
Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.
