Fallen Earth: Day of the Dead Holiday Event Coming Soon

Posted Thu, Oct 15, 2009 by Medawky

It seems most games worth their salt are having a holiday tie in event for All Hallows Eve and Fallen Earth is no exception. This recently released game is set to kick off its first in game event, Days of the Dead, and we have all the details plus some exclusive goodness to dispense. The event goes live on October 23rd and features a zombie hunt, special weapons and even a rare item for players lucky enough to unearth it.

Here is the official event backstory:

About a century ago, an AI subroutine called TETRAX went a little crazy and started spewing out deranged clones. People call the clones by all sorts of names—rotters, diggers, zombies—but people are calling these new clones "Infected" because of the nanites they carry that are potentially damaging to LifeNet facilities and to clones. TETRAX managed to infect a number of LifeNet facilities throughout the province, causing them to create more of these Infected before it was shut down. The infected facilities were believed to be too damaged to be recovered, so the computers were shut off and the facilities buried... just in case.

Someone or something has dug up those facilities and turned them back on. Infected have been pouring out of the places ever since. Not only are these Infected a menace to any people they encounter, they are trying to reach other LifeNet facilities. TETRAX has contaminated the Infected with nanites that can contaminate any LifeNet computers that they come into contact with, allowing TETRAX to take control of them. It's up to the people of the Grand Canyon province to stop this menace before the entire province is overrun with Infected!


And here is more details about the in game goings on from the official FAQ:

Where do I start?
Players can get starting directions in-game from conversers at each of the mission hubs, but some of them can be tricky to find. Type /loc [coordinates] into the chat window. For example, using the first set of coordinates, your entry would be:

 /loc 3911157 3255036

 
Use these coordinates to find a converser:

3911157 3255036

4527201 3480305

4435263 4040014

4111701 3753247

4722674 3876988

4916947 4320172

4749457 5718166

5156234 5143548

3979254 4988255

4107025 5541430

6142638 5994422

6701452 4965841

6685157 5439542 

What will I learn at a mission hub?

Mission hubs are located nearby some of the barter towns and neutral towns. They have NPCs that give players information about the holiday events. They also offer missions that give rewards to help players complete the missions and find the infected pods. These missions are repeatable so that players can acquire these items multiple times. 

Where do I find my zombie-killing weapon?

The Bankers, a neutral faction, are also offering a special zombie-fighting weapon for killing 100 Infected. Players get their choice of a signature shotgun, a sawed-off shotgun, or a cricket bat. You can only accept this mission once. The Bankers are found at:

Sector One Locations: Embry Crossroads, Odenville, Watchtower

Sector Two Locations: Sunshine Corners, New Flagstaff

Sector Three Locations: Dieseltown, Trader's Flat 

How can I make scarecrows to attract zombies so I can kill them?

Pumpkins are needed to create scarecrows for one of the missions. You can buy pumpkins from Cooking Merchants or you can seek out one of the scattered pumpkin patches. Watch out for the rare drop of the “Pumpkin of Extraordinary Merit,” which grants a five percent increase to Strength, Endurance, Coordination, Dexterity, Perception and Willpower and a 10 percent increase to your health regeneration for one hour. This consumable Pumpkin can be used at any time and is not event-bound. It is also tradeable.
