2022 Halloween Game Events
During the month of October, the video game industry celebrates Halloween in a variety of ways. From limited-time events and goodies to full-fledged additional modes, here are the events, patches, updates, and DLC that will feature spooky new content in 2022.
Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror
Overwatch’s annual Halloween Terror event returns for the first time in Overwatch 2! A new limited-time co-op mission, Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride, as well as the original Junkenstein’s Revenge co-op Brawl, are coming to the game from October 25th to November 9th, along with a number of spooky rewards to unlock!
Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost
From October 12th to November 2nd, all Destiny 2 players can participate in the Last City tradition of remembering the lost. Participate in Haunted Sectors during the Festival of the Lost, where an Exo and a Vex Mind have merged, a Guardian on Nessus is being hunted for their Ghost, and headless creatures prowl the moon’s dark recesses. There’s something here for everyone, with new lore and collectible cosmetics!
Pokemon Go Halloween Part Ii Event
Pokemon Go hosts an annual Halloween Event, which includes a variety of featured Pokemon (in cute spooky outfits) and limited-time Research tasks to help you earn a variety of resources and rewards, such as spooky avatar poses and encounters with rare Legendary Pokemon!
Disney Dreamlight Valley Halloween Update
Disney Dreamlight Valley has a plethora of spooky treats in store, as well as Tasks that are uniquely themed. The current Disney Dreamlight Valley Villains’ Star Path is themed around Disney villains, and spooky items such as buckets of candy and pumpkins have been added around the world, allowing you to make your village as ominous as you want, or gift your Disney friends some candy, or both!
Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Update
A total of 20 new Spooky items have been added and are now available for purchase in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Baskets, trees, pumpkin lamps, fences, and more! Spooky Cookies, like in 2021, return as a cookable recipe, so whip up a new batch and enjoy your work!
Fortnite Fortnitemares 2022
DJ Lyka will be waiting for you at the Reality Tree on the Island during Fortnitemares 2022 to transform you into a wolf-like monster. When you perform the Ritual emote as instructed, you will gain the Howler Claws item, which allows you to swipe at opponents and use the Wolfscent ability to actively track nearby enemies.
There is plenty to keep you busy, including a Zero Build Horde Rush mode (which will be available for a limited time after Fornitemares), Unvaulted items like Candy and the Pumpkin Launcher, and a number of Fortnitemare-specific Quests to complete. Completing 5 Quests earns you the Everything’s End Glider, 13 earns you the Chrome Cage Back Bling, and 25 earns you the Unmaker Pickaxe to use in Fortnite.
Rust Halloween Update
A 3-minute candy hunt event will begin every two in-game days in Rust! Collect as much candy as you can, and the top three players will be rewarded with special loot bags! You can either get scrap or an M249! The Pumpkin Bucket item allows you to instantly pick up Candy, and the Scarecrow Wrap and Ghost Costume allow you to use “Candy Vision” to find those sugary treats even faster.
Elite Dangerous Halloween Update
While little is known about Elite Dangerous’ Halloween update, the following cryptic suggestions have been made as to the narrative direction of this spooky content:
“A terrible tragedy has struck a number of citizens in the bubble. What became of them? Anyone who solves the puzzles and discovers the truth will receive four exclusive cosmetics. Will you take the risk of following the breadcrumbs all the way down the path…?”
