We round up the grizzliest ghoultastic delights across the MMO-sphere this weekend.
It’s that time of year once again. Where clothes that have haunted the back of your wardrobe get turned into ghastly costumes. Where you run around like a werewolf after eating faaaar too much candy, before it reforms into ectoplasm and threatens to burst from your stomach. Where you drift like a ghost from party to party, before shambling home like a zombie after one drink too many. Or maybe that’s just me.
Either way, it’s probably safer to be in front of your PC and diving into your favourite online game. To get into the spirit of things, several MMOs have launched their own Halloween festivities, giving out rewards galore. If you’re looking to engage in a virtual candy shakedown, here’s the places where you can do it. And if you know of anywhere not on the list, sound off in the comments!
