Halloween Comes To PlanetSide 2

PlanetSide 2 will be celebrating Halloween in their traditional style, as the Nanite of the Living Dead will rise again!

Running from Thursday 19 October 2017 through Friday 10 November 2017, the season puts pumpkins throughout the battlefields of Auraxis.  The pumpkins can be destroyed and the seeds harvested for new Pumpkin Grenade projectiles, bonus XP, or can be traded for a number of other spooky items.  Speaking of which, there will be a range of Halloween themed items in the marketplace.

Additionally, this year players will also be able to take on a brand new set of directives and earn a brand new set of rewards.  Those that complete them all will be granted the Phylactery Implant, giving the ability to resurrect themselves on the battlefield (note, PS4 players will have to wait until the Implant system Launches to do this, but it’ll be worth the wait).

PlanetSide 2 is renowned for celebrating key seasons and events (their Christmas update is always awesome) and the Halloween celebrations are always a highlight of the year.  See you in Auraxis.
