Happy Halloween, Play Some Video Games
Every year around this time a bunch of games get special events for the greatest* holiday. This year is no different, despite Halo 5 not having an event (sad face), but here are a bunch of others games that do have something special to offer for this spooky time of year.
Gears of Four (I mean, Gears of War 4)
There's a playlist in this game right now that makes everyone have a pumpkin head. Creepy. Phantom Dodgeball is available for a limited time, and Locust general Skorge has made an appearence for this special time of year. Event ends who knows when... Probably soon.
The Elder Scrolls Online
The Witches Festival returns with double XP and a variety of themed items and mounts. The Crown Store has some spooky items for sale and you can also change your appearance to dress in something more festive. Ends tomorrow.
GTA V Online: Condemned
This is also an anniversary mode for GTA V, but Halloween is there too. In the new mode, Condemned, one player gets marked for death and they have to kill another player to clear themselves. It's last man standing, and double money is offered during the event. Runs through November 6.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
The Halloween event is called Willard Wyler's Halloween Scream, and each week players get special supply drops for signing in, with Halloween-themed cosmetics on Fridays (maybe I should have written about this one sooner..). Gesture Warfare, a new multiplayer mode lets you kill players by doing weird stuff like pinching your finger together and it actually looks amazing. You should really take a look at the trailer below. Double XP is available through this mode, and the while thing ends tomorrow, so get to playing. If you have the season pass you'll get a boss battles mode which lets you take on a different zombie mode final fight each week.
The "Minecraft Halloween Spooktacular Event" is actually pretty cute and well themed. Any Bedrock version of the game has access to all the special themed content and activities. The Lifeboat server has a special haunted house parkour course, InPvP has a Haunted Mansion SkyWare map, and Mineplex has The Pumpkin King, as well as enemy flaming pumpkins, and more. The event ends after today, so check out this video and get to playing.
Again, Happy Halloween!
