SOE Celebrates Halloween In Six Online Games

Seasonal events are something MMO players enjoy and look forward to every year and Sony Online Entertainment has plans in store for fans of DC Universe™ Online, Dragon's Prophet, EverQuest®, EverQuest®II, Landmark™, and PlanetSide®2.

DC Universe Online starts the fun October 6 - November 2 with The Witching Hour. Along with the yearly decorations and Midnight Masquerade, Gotham will again play host to Eddie Munster lookalike, Klarion Bleak. To make sure everyone is properly in the mood, SOE's holding a Halloween Sale in the DC Marketplace where players will enjoy up to 30% off of themes, guises, suits and more.

Next up, Dragon's Prophet springs the spook October 9 - November 6 with the Styx Festival Event. Players will enjoy a special zone full of Halloween-themed events and risk death by Abyss dragon while exploring a haunted Auratia. Festive new items will abound, including transformation potions that turn players into zombies and skeletons.

Everquest gets the Halloween party started October 15 - November 5 as necromancers and vampires invade the land of Norrath. There'll be plenty of tricks and treats, festive merchants and more during these unnerving Nights of the Dead. Everquest II is also getting into the act October 9 - November 3 with its own version of the festival.

Bucking the usual Halloween trend, Landmark is hosting a building competition. Yes, in addition to the usual decor, players are encouraged to create and submit their best Halloweeny graveyards, haunted hotels, scary pumpkins or whatever else they can dream up.  (Three entry limit) For more information on entering the contest, click here.

Finally, Planetside 2 brings the Halloween fun with Nanite of the Living Dead. It's all very hush-hush, but the gist of it is, players are asked to assist in the destruction of errant Space Pumpkins. Seeds from the pumpkins can be used to buy seasonal masks and other Halloween-themed items. For details, click here.
