Trick or treat? Forge of Empires has plenty of both in store with the start of this year’s Halloween event. Players find themselves lost at the spookiest of fairs after having trusted the Ringmaster once again. As the mist settles in, players must make their way through the dark abandoned fairground following the Ringmaster’s voice as he may be their only escape. The event runs from October 28th through November 17th.
This year’s Halloween questline consists of 30 rush quests and 21 additional daily quests. By completing the quests, players receive Fairground Tickets. Tickets can also be earned through daily logins or by completing incidents around one’s city. Once earned, these tickets can be used to purchase candles, flashlights and lanterns to disperse the mist and forge a path through the dark fairground.
It’s best to mind one’s step as there are items and rewards on the ground beneath the mist. Pumpkins contain random rewards and a chance at the daily special, while Lightbulbs help make progress toward the Grand Prize. Toys unlock special additional questlines and the completion of these quests provides more rewards and the fairground findings achievement. Lastly, new this year are Daily Stickers which can be spent in the Reward Calendar. Each sticker is unique and will open one of the 21 slots on the calendar for an equally unique prize. Complete the whole calendar for an additional treat.
As for the treats themselves, this year comes complete with five different event buildings: Helter Skelter, Clown Town, Wheel of Death, Mystical Organ, and Terror Teacups. Each of these Horror Circus buildings can be upgraded two levels, have a base bonus and a connector bonus as part of a set. There are different bonuses provided as more buildings within the set are connected. Daily Special Rewards offer the chance to win buildings from last year’s event, including the House of Horrors and the Abandoned Asylum. Successfully completing the quests will unlock the Hellish Hangout, which provides a four-day 20 percent attacking bonus for players’ defensive armies. Players will also have the chance to share their progress with their friends and neighbors through four new avatars. Two can be earned in the questline, one for completing the Reward Calendar and one for completing the Toy questlines.
