As October starts coming to a close, one thing tends to be on every one’s mind, Halloween. This spooky holiday also seems to have NCsoft captivated . The developer/producer is planning Halloween themed events across all six of its active Western titles.

The world of Guild Wars will see the return of the Mad King Thorn. Lineage II players are going to have to deal with Scarecrow Jack. Gamers who are still playing the first Lineage will be treated to a costume party. The City of Heroes is going to have to unite against a Halloween Apocalypse. The Mechnaughts of Exteel are getting a spooky orange and purple paint scheme. In NCsoft’s newest title Aion, the Asmodians will host a Wild hunt, where as the Elyos have to stave off a zombie invasion.

To get a more detaiedl description of each event, hit the jump.

Aion – Harvest Revel

During the Fall harvest, the people of Atreia have always celebrated the bounty of the land. Years ago, the joy of the annual revels was troubled by an eclipse-a peculiar and magical eclipse that brought darkness to Asmodae and Elysea. Ever since, for days during Harvest Revel, the sky goes dark and the people of Atreia join in the hunt.

Asmodians celebrate the bounty through the Wild Hunt, racing after the Wild Kurthanir hunt leader and cooking special dishes made from the meat. On the other side of Atreia, the Elyos encounter undead creatures pulled back into a semblance of life by the power of the eclipse. Elyos must join roving Dark Night bands to hunt and destroy the undead before they invade Elyos villages.

Each day during Harvest Revel players will be rewarded for their investment with new lore and tasty treats including a Halloween Hat and candy that will transform players into in game creatures!

Guild Wars – The Return of Mad King Thorn

It’s Halloween in Tyria, and that means one thing: the return of Mad King Thorn ! Similar to years past, the maniacal monarch has come to play, and he’s got a bag full of tricks and treats to delight and dismay. But non-tricksters fear not, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Halloween – participate in several special events (a new series of quests and a costume PvP brawl) or explore the decorated cities/towns adorned with Halloween décor.

  1. None of this compares to Hollows End in WoW, which is my favorite time of year.

  2. @Josh
    The only thing I liked about Hollow’s End was the few Headless Horseman runs you could do. It could have gotten better though, as I quit before WOTLK.

  3. It is nice to see that more games are adding holiday events. I really enjoyed some of them in World of Warcraft, I hope future MMOs I play have them too!

  4. I agree with Josh that Hallows End in WoW is pretty bad ass.
