HEXWORKS, a CI Games studio, has kicked off the spooky season with a free, time-limited Halloween event for Lords of the Fallen. Launching today at 11pm CEST (2pm PT, 5pm ET, 10pm BST). and running until 2nd November, the game’s world of Mournstead has been decorated with seasonal cosmetics. Players can also pursue a new questline to attain the Pumpskin Mask, a horrifying helm inspired by the iconic jack-o’-lantern.
The event coincides with the all-platform release of a significant update – The Pumpkin Patch – that brings a series of new gameplay mechanics developed following ongoing community feedback.
The Pumpkin Patch update includes:
- Revamped New Game Plus (NG+) – A new tiered NG+ system introduces Vestiges to the game mode; each higher level of NG+ removes more Vestiges from the game, increasing player difficulty.
- Full crossplay – Players can now experience full crossplay functionality between all PC and console platforms. This follows the introduction of crossplay between Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5 players for the first time earlier this week.
- Reduced enemy density – A reduction of the enemy density in areas observed as being most challenging for players.
- Performance & stability – Further performance and stability fixes across all platforms.
