When it comes to Halloween, MMOs have always treated us to some banger events, and 2022 looks like it’ll offer us some sweet treats. We’re closing in on the scariest night of the year, so we’ve put together a list of MMOs that have added some spooky delights that will haunt you for the next few weeks. We even found a few of the Not So MMOs that have some tricks up their sleeves. Events are still being announced daily, so let us know of any events we may have missed in the comments below.
Aion - Spookily Super Halloween Event and Garden of Horrors
The Pumpkin King is spreading fear and terror once again in the annual Spookily Super Halloween Event. Get an hour’s worth of Bombastic Buffs by clicking on A Nobleman’s Coffin in the main bases in Inggison and Glkmaros, then visit NPCs Esta or Isuta for your daily quest to defeat Pumpkin Kings. Also, be on the lookout for Kabe and his special task that will earn you some extra rewards.
Also running through November 2nd, the Garden of Horrors is the second of Aion’s Halloween events. Available to players level 80+, Greenhaven Garden can be accessed daily by using the portal in the Gelkmaros fortress or Inggison Illusion Fortress (additional entries can be purchased from the Aion Shop). Once you enter the garden, you must defend the plants from waves of pests like the Dukaki Thief and Greenhaven Tenaklu. Each plant you save can be harvested for one (normal mode) or Two (hard mode) Event Pumpkins, which can be turned in for rewards.

I couldn’t find an official announcement, but it appears that the Samhain 2022 daily login rewards started on October 15th.

Another year of development means another year to capitalize off of Halloween.

Beyond The MMO
There are still plenty of Halloween treats to be found, even if you aren’t into big parties and all the hoopla that the MMOs bring. There are plenty of goodies to be found in the seasonal quests of the looter-shooters, and RockStar has mixed in some Halloween mischief to the day-to-day mayhem of their online offerings. The co-op-centric games also get into the act, sprinkling their own brand of Halloween content. And, of course, the battle royale and other player vs. player games refuse to be left out in the cold by giving players a ton of unique game modes and cosmetic goodies to indulge in.
