Shards Online might "only" be in pre-alpha, but that's not enough to stop devs from bringing the Halloween spirit into the game this weekend. A special Halloween server has been set up for players to explore at a trio of times once each day from Friday, October 30th through Sunday, November 1st.
We will open the Halloween server for two hours at different times each day during the weekend in case you miss the main event.
Playtesters start as a ghosts trapped in limbo. From there they spawn into one of the many denizens of our very own Eldeir Cemetery. When they arrive, they find themselves faced with a constant onslaught of human graverobbers. Killing humans gets them additional spawn points to spawn into bigger and better creatures each with their own special abilities like a dropping a nest that spawns baby spiders, hell portals, werebat packs and more.
