Season of Spooks

Bioware and EA have announced that Anthem is getting a Halloween event. Titled Season of Skulls, this event will give you a chance to brave the fog and earn some fun awards.

Seasons of Skulls has already started, and if you're interested in participating in it then you don't have to do much. So long as you've completed the quest Incursion, which is the mission that introduces antagonist The Monitor for those that are unaware, then you can participate in the event. Once you're ready, you can jump into spooky arenas, taking on waves of enemies and earning prizes as you do so. As you battle weird modifiers will change how the arena works, meaning you always need to be ready to change your tactics at a moment's notice. You'll want to try and kill as many enemies as you can before time runs out, so you can nab crystals that you can then spend on rewards.

 

In addition to this, new events will begin to spawn in the game's freeplay section. Called anomalies, these are tied to one of the game's three factions, and has you assisting that faction in battle with various difficult enemies. Kill them, and you may even get a chance to fight a boss that drops some of the really good loot. As you complete both the anomalies and battle in the arena, you'll be able to earn rewards and cosmetics to trick your characters out. In addition to this, the legendary item drop rate will be increased during this time, giving you a higher chance of getting that one gun you really wanted.

If you're looking for the spooky themes without the shooting, spend some time exploring Fort Tarsis as well. It will be tricked out with some Seasons of Skulls flair. Look around a bit and you may even find some hidden lore bits about the Seasons of Skulls and what it means in-universe.

 

Anthem is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is also available as part of EA Access. Season of Skulls currently does not have an end date.
