As
more and more MMO games become consumed by the public,
the pressure is on for developers to entice hordes of gamers to
converge on
their particular title to take part in some epic content. That content
isn’t
always easy to find nor is it available for long. This year is no
different but
that’s where we come in. We’ve gathered a list of
some of the coolest events
taking place this year to take make sure you don’t miss out
on any of it. From
old school to brand new car smell, there’s a Halloween event
out there for
everyone. To keep this from becoming a flame fest of epic proportions,
we’ve
decided to sort all games by alphabetical order. We’ll also
be updating this
list with more events and start/end times as they come in so be sure to
check
back often. So without further ado, let’s get down to it so
you can get
cracking planning your virtual Halloween route!

DC
Universe Online – The Witching Hour

“Soon”

Klarion
the Witch Boy has returned to the DC Online
Universe and is intent on wreaking some serious havoc upon its citizens
during
this year’s href="https://www.dcuniverseonline.com/news/archive/witching-hour-halloween-event-2013-october-10-dc-universe-online">Witching
Hour… not to mention
those pesky superpower types that are always messing
things up for him. Since he’s trying to steal the magic of
everyone in Gotham
City, it behooves players to do everything they can to stop him, no
matter
which way their good/evil pendulum swings.

Elsword

“Soon”

Want
to get a creepy costume without paying a single penny? Then
you’d better be hoping you’re playing Elsword
because that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this
year’s Halloween events. The team is continuing to roll out
more information as it gets closer to the magical date we’ve
all been waiting for. There will be more events and community contests
than ever before. Yay!

EverQuest
– The Haunting of Norrath

October 19th

Just
as you’d expect, there are tons of different things
players can do this year in the href="https://www.everquest.com/news/the-haunting-of-norrath-returns-starting-october-19-2013">Haunting
of Norrath event. Whether you
feel like helping The Gravedigger complete
his collection of tattoos (gathered from the flesh of
corpses… ewwww!), listen
to Grom Shives tell the tale of a legendary Dark Elf Warrior that stole
magic
from powerful beings, or want to go trick or treating, there are plenty
of
things to do.

haunted house, haunted mansion, headless horsemen… all
this is just the tip of the iceberg of the href="https://www.everquest2.com/news/everquestii-nights-of-the-dead-2013">Nights
of the Dead event. Things are
going bump in the night! And the day. And

Final
Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – All Saint’s Wake

“Soon”

Final
Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn may have been born at
night, but it certainly wasn’t born last night. The
development team knew they
had to have an event ready for such a fun holiday and it looks like
they’re
ready to deliver with an event called href="http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/pr/blog/000520.html">All
Saint’s Wake.
The lands are changing and it appears the cities with it! What does it
mean?
Time will tell, but I’m willing to bet it’s not
going to be purring cats and
rosy-cheek babies everywhere.

Guild
Wars 2 – Blood and Madness

October 15th
until ?

You
thought the Mad King was defeated… of silly mortal.
Not only is he back, but he brought along his son to add to the fun
– Edrick,
The Bloody Prince. He’s taken over the Mad King’s
Labyrinth and controlling the
Undead Armies of his father. I wish I had better news for you but
that’s just
the beginning of the madness about to descend upon the land in this
year’s href="https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/releases/october-15-2013/">Blood
and Madness event!

Mabinogi –
Cursed Labyrinth

October 23rd
until ?

A
puzzle-filled dungeon, awesome cut scenes, new gear, and new bosses.
What's a girl (or guy) not to like? The Cursed Labyrinth has come to
Mabinogi
and it's up to the players to figure out this mystery
by banding together and setting things right. Get ready for the mystery
of a lifetime as you're transformed and transported to a haunted
mansion!

Be sure to visit the official Mabinogi website for more details on the Cursed Labyrinth event!

Marvel
Heroes - Wolverine Brood Costume

Available from now until November 1st

This
may not be a Halloween event in the traditional
sense, but if you’re a fan of Marvel Heroes, it’s
something too cool not to be
made aware of. For their Halloween event, the Marvel Heroes team is
releasing a
new Halloween-inspired costume each week. The first of these costumes
is a href="https://marvelheroes.com/news/news-articles/special-halloween-costume-available">Brood/Wolverine
hybrid costume. In the original
comic series, Wolverine’s healing factor
saved him (and eventually all the X-Men) from the Brood’s
body snatching ways.
In this universe though, it was only partially effective and the
results are
definitely horror induced!

RIFT
– Autumn Harvest

October 17th
until ?

Werewolves,
Vampires, and other creatures go bump in the
night. What could it mean? Only the return of The Harvest Master, what
else?
Atrophinius may be lazy most of the year, but during the href="http://community.riftgame.com/en/2013/10/09/autumn-harvest-returns/">Autumn
Harvest, he and his minions to
strip the land bare of everything he needs
to make his mead-induced concoctions. Help fellow players keep beetles
from
stealing harvests and from precious relics of Telara from disappearing
from the
land.

The
Secret World – Stories from Solomon Island

“Soon”

Last
year’s Cat God event will be making a return to this
Earth of an alternate universe. Not content to just reactivate old
content from
last year though, there will be a new line of quests added to href="http://www.thesecretworld.com/news/game_director_letter_september_2013">this
year’s event. The
Stories of Solomon Island will reunite you with old acquaintances
while introducing new horrors at the same time. It should be a
scream!

Ultima
Online – Halloween 2013

October 1st
through October 31st

Ever
wanted to have the head of a developer on a pike?
Well now’s your chance. The team behind UO has added this
item and other
special Trick or Treat prizes for href="http://www.uo.com/article/Publish-83-TC1-August-30th-2013">this
year’s
event, but there is a catch
– you’re going to need to be the GMs to give
them to you. It sounds like a nightmare from here, but good luck! If
you don’t
feel like doing any begging, you’ll be able to find pumpkin
carving kits on
Butchers (hiding in graveyards) that will allow you to create one of
nine Jack
o’ Lanterns.

World
of Warcraft – Hallow’s End

October 18th
to November 1st

The
Headless Horseman makes his return in this
year’s Hallow’s End event, complete with epic loot
and grand adventures.
Fortunately for everyone, I’ve heard reports from some
friends that still work
for Blizzard that there are a number of daily quests that will grant
treats
that you can then spend on items you want instead of hoping for an uber
rare
item. Personally, I was never a fan of the old system, so I’m
looking forward
to this new method.
