Sony Online Entertainment Announce 2013 Halloween Events and Promotions

 This year Sony Online Enterainment will be holding several Halloween in-game events across multiple online titles. This year will also feature Halloween items created through Player Studio, SOE’s program which offers players the opportunity to create in-game items which can be sold on the marketplace. 

Events include:

DC Universe Online: Oct. 8 – Nov. 5

  • DCUO celebrates Halloween with the return of the “The Witching Hour.” Once again, masked ghouls are causing chaos in the streets as Klarion the Witch Boy’s mischievous antics have caused all hell to break loose across Gotham City. Heroes will be tasked with stopping the dangerous apparitions, while Villains will work to cause even more trouble. Ultimately, players will be challenged to enter the Goth club, “The Midnight Masquerade,” and take down Klarion, who has managed to increase his power by stealing the abilities of magic Heroes and Villains. Additionally, players will be able to participate in new feats and earn new rewards, including style items, like the Skeleton Outfit and Witch Hat, tons of base items, and a new pet — Boo Junior.

Dragon’s Prophet: Oct. 23 – Nov. 6

  • Aspiring Prophets must muster up the courage to adventure through a haunted Auratia. Players will have to battle Abyss dragons and other monsters in a special Halloween event. Additionally, they’ll have access to new Halloween-themed items, including transformation potions that will change players into skeletal warriors, zombies and more.

EverQuest: Oct. 19 – Nov. 7

  • Every year around this time Norrath becomes a bit creepier and crawlier than usual, with a number of seasonal tricks and treats as well as the occasional undead encounter. Here is a quick list of some of the events available in game. Go check them out today!


  • The days grow shorter, there’s an ominous chill in the air, and the veil between our world and the spirit world grows thin, allowing all manner of ghosts and ghouls to walk the land. Spooky treats await those who are brave enough to investigate the strange happenings across Norrath during the annual Nights of the Dead celebration.


  • Halloween has arrived in Free Realms and players are invited to experience in-game Halloween fun and adventure! In addition to a new frightfully fun quest, the Marketplace will be filled with scary costumes and Halloween essentials, including Werewolf and Headless Horseman costumes, eyeball mount, fog machine, skeletal horse ride and more! Halloween favorites have also returned, such as the Vampire vs. Werewolf in Bone Bog Cemetery, and Chiller Boombox and Pumpkin Costume trading card game quests.

PlanetSide 2:

  • To celebrate Halloween, PlanetSide 2 has called up the valiant soldiers of Auraxis to create Halloween inspired Player Studio items. Available now, PlanetSide 2 players can get these new holiday items and rain death from above or on the ground while sporting flaming Jack-O-Lanterns, bat-winged skulls and more. These items will continue to be available after the Halloween season is over.

Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures: Oct. 1 – Nov. 5

  • The most ghoulish event in the Galaxy is back as Clone Wars Adventures celebrates Halloween! Now through Nov. 5, there are spooky costumes, devilish Droids™ and deadly decorations available for players to alter their characters’ appearance and the appearance of their homes. For even more frightful fun, the special Halloween-themed Dark Side Duel stage where players fight a Halloween Count Dooku, and the Fright Flight Halloween-themed stage of the Rocket Rescue mini-game have also returned!

Vanguard Saga of Heroes: Oct. 15 – Nov. 5

  • With The Festival of the Grim Harvest in full effect, the veil between the world of the living and the dead is at its weakest and thinnest. Players will have to face three new Raid bosses, ghoulish NPC’s, be treated to new candy items, and more!

Wizardry Online: Oct. 23 – Nov. 6
