Just in time for the spookiest weekend of the year, Mayor Bones Proudly Presents: Ghost Town's 999th Annual Pumpkin Festival is a genuine Halloween treat, and the best cure for October blues I have yet come across.The premise is simple: you…

Sea Of Thieves is hunting shadow skeletons this Halloween

It's time to put on your scariest pirating gear, because the Sea Of Thieves Halloween update is here. This year's Fate Of The Damned event will send you on voyages to discover what happened to some missing Bilge Rat crews. Eerie shadow skeletons will be standing in your way on these adventures, however - it is the spooky season, after all.

Rainbow Six Siege’s Halloween event turns you into horrific puppets and I hate it

Rainbow Six Siege's Halloween event kicks off today, trapping you in a nightmare where everyone has turned into a respawning puppet. I do not like it one bit. The event is called Sugar Fright, and it plonks players straight into Frost's fever dream where everything is made of sweets and all your friends look like horrible Muppet Show rejects.

Feature: Scares as iconic as Aiden's cap

Add Hill House and the Bates Motel to The Sims 4 for the season of pumpkins

As the nights draw ever closer, and the windows of the local Tesco grow ever more pumpkiny, I have been burrowing into blankets, putting a hot water bottle on my feetsies (because we don't want to turn on the heating yet) and wallowing in some classic scares. But I have found this harder to do with games. Most games are, obviously, a very interactive experience,…

Call Of Duty: Warzone is celebrating spook season with zombie royale and other new modes

Well well, Call Of Duty: Warzone is jumping in on spooky time with its very own horror-themed update. The Hunting Of Verdansk is a biggo event beginning tomorrow, October 20th. It'll bring new limited-time game modes, treats to hunt down, and apparently cosmetic skins from Saw and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Well I won't accuse them of doing anything in half measure.

Overwatch’s Halloween event is giving me comfort in this hell year

Earlier this year, when the pandemic made us shut ourselves away in our homes, there was a hope (and, well, wishful thinking) that it would all wash over in a few months. Evidently that was too optimistic, and is very much not the case. It sucks for many reasons, but one that's been on my mind over the last few days is that I won't…

Feature: All that glitters is gold

The RPS minecraft server has devolved into a hellish Shrek larp

Happy Halloween, citizens! When midnight comes and October ends, I, Ghoastus, will be banished once more into the spirit realm - at least until something sufficiently Roman happens to summon me back. I will miss you all. But before that dread hour arrives, there is time yet for one more terribly frightening story. It concerns my friend and colleague Nate, who started an unofficial RPS…

A whole lot of haunting hits Destiny 2 today, with the start of its Halloween event and the launch of a new dungeon. Festival Of The Lost is for all players, sending us back along branches of the Infinite Forest to mash monsters and grab sweeties to swap for rewards.

Fortnite summons the Storm King for a spooky PvE boss battle event

Halloween has arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale with a honking great cooperative boss battle in an event mode like something out of an MMORPG. The Storm King LTM sees the big boy and his undead armies rise again and sends a few dozen players out to stop him. I've had a few cracks myself and been surprised by quite how tough the fight is.

Dicey Dungeons scares up new challenges and monsters for a Halloween update

As I was lurching around my neighbourhood, dressed like a scary poll tax collector, I banged on a door and readied myself for my traditional Halloween scare-a-thon. To my surprise, it was Terry Cavanagh’s mansion. He gave me a hearty laugh and tipped a new Halloween-themed Dicey Dungeons update into my plastic pumpkin. His cute deckbuilding roguelike is now 100% more Halloweeny for the next…

Boo! Steam and GOG’s Halloween sales started today

If you're short of something spooky to play this Halloween week (Halloweek?), hit Steam and GOG to see what's going cheap in their spooky sales. Launched today, they've got oodles of ooky discounts between them. Since almost everyone else has gone home for the day and I'm the one writing this post, I'll drop a few recommendations of my own then shuffle off.

Borderlands 3 Halloween event adds Terror

There's a bit in The Borderlands Show where creative director Paul Sage says he "wants to talk about terror", and for a second it sounds like he's going to launch into a philosophical exploration of fear. The Aristotelian notion of catharsis, perhaps, in which the experience of 'negative' emotion within fiction can cleanse or purify inner emotional trauma. Turns out he actually wants to talk…

Rainbow 6 Siege hunting monsters in Doktor’s Curse event mode

Halloween descends upon Rainbow Six Siege today with the launch of Doktor's Curse, a hide 'n' seek mode where monsterhunters armed with honking great hammers are out to squash ghoulies who just want to live. It's not their fault they're alive, you awful hunters. Take it up with the Doktor. You can meet the fiend in the event trailer below.

Hitman 2? More like Hitman TwooOoOOoOOOoO

Lurking in the shadows, learning your life and routine, striking from the shadows with swift and often ironic murders (or cursed luggage), then vanishing as someone new, Ian Hitman is basically a horror movie slasher in Italian tailoring. It's fitting that Hitman 2 is going hard on Halloween this year. The tutorial level in New Zealand today gets a spooky makeover with all the skeletons,…

Sea Of Thieves goes overboard with skeletons in this month’s Fort Of The Damned update

It must be hard to make Halloween updates for a game where most enemies are swashbuckling skeletons. But that's just what Sea Of Thieves is trying to do with Fort Of The Damned, October's harrowing Halloween twist on Rare's sea shanty. With a damnable new castle and skinless pets, Sea Of Thieves wants to make sure your timbers have thoroughly shivered.

There's a chill in King's Canyon tonight. Apex Legends's Fight Or Fright Halloween spectacle began today, bringing ghosts and ghouls and all that spooky stuff into Respawn's battle royale. For the next three weeks, the familiar cast of the Apex games will be dressing up in their spookiest costumes, dishing out bullets and grenades to any rascal with the nerve to come trick or treating…

Stranger Things drive into Rocket League’s Haunted Hallows event today

Stranger Things might be in a post-season slump, but you wouldn't know it from looking at games. You've got your Nancy and Steve popping into Dead By Daylight, and every bookstore and board game shop in town has those themed Dungeons & Dragons (& Demagorgons) starter kits lying about. Today, it's Rocket League's turn to become haunted by the 80s, as Haunted Hallows arrive in…

TF2 turns twelve, celebrates with Scream Fortress XI

Spooky season is upon us. I know this, in part, because someone has already covered the treehouse windows in cheap cobwebs and I can't gaze broodingly at the completely normal, not at all unsettling events of the outside world in 2019. But the real clue is Team Fortress 2's Halloween event, back once more with two new maps, a buncha hats and a temporary re-opening…

Rocket League’s Halloween event crashes into Stranger Things

After a false start on Christmas, when advent calendars appearing on supermarket shelves in September, everyone has finally remembered it's Halloween season first. Rocket League has announced its latest Halloween event, this year crossing over with Stranger Things. Haunted Hallows will bring new cosmetic doodads inspired by the Netflix show's mock-eighties world, including a pattern inspired by Hooper's groovy shirt. It'll also let us play…
