I’ve seen extra impressed concepts for Halloween occasions than “let’s do some night-time levels”, but it surely’s nonetheless a reasonably good one. For the period of Geheimnisnacht, each stage in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been plunged into darkness. Geheimnisnacht is “the most ill-omened night of the year”, and lasts till November 4th.

More importantly, there’s additionally a community-run shitty cosplay competitors.

Gallivanting about Helmgart in the dead of night is the primary draw of the Halloween event, although in fact there are different gubbins. We’ve additionally received portraits, pumpkins and development trackers:

“We’ll have a limited time event quest on offer which rewards a new portrait frame, as well as opening up the once off-limits trophy room in Taal’s Horn Keep for heroes to showcase their progression through Vermintide 2. The Keep has, of course, had another make over to mark the event. Lohner needs to be kept busy whilst you’re off checking out the new vistas!”

Those new vistas will all be sickly inexperienced, as a result of that’s the color of one of many moons. There are pics on the Geheimnisnacht web page, although a ghost appears to have come alongside and shrunk them. Fortunately, Alice Prime volunteered to go scuttling into the darkish to present you a correct view of the gloom.

That’s not going to cease me utilizing this excellently shitty cosplay from Reddit user “Xeliv” as a header as a substitute. Entries for the Reddit-run costume contest are open till November ninth, however you’ve received to embrace the shambolic spirit of the competitors. Think much less about customized foam jobs and stupidly intricate shoulder pads, and extra about cardboard with receipts stuck to it.

Here’s the gold standard.

Oh yeah, Vermintide 2 additionally received a bunch of bug fixes. You can crawl by way of the patch notes here, whereas I chuckle at this good imitation of Dota 2’s Io utilizing a sheet and some fairy lights for the 500th time.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is 50% off on Steam till November 1st, pricing it at £12/$15/€14. The DLC is 25% off, too.
