Call of Duty: Warzone/Modern Warfare The Haunting of Verdansk
Starting October 20, you can enter into the world of the classic thrillers The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and SAW with The Haunting of Verdansk. Many Halloween-themed items will be up for grabs including bundles from both films as well as tons of rewards through the Trick or Treat event. If you’re down for a good scare, this might be the most frightening in-game event out as Verdansk will have an option for nighttime infiltrations. This, in addition, may include some unwanted individuals lurking around the map you won’t want to come into contact with.
Along with that, is the limited-time Zombie Royale mode which brings some new life to the original battle royale. Instead of heading to the Gulag, players will turn undead as a Zombie on the hunt for Syringes. When a player dies, they will drop a syringe. So if you collect two of these Syringes as a Zombie, you’ll be dropping back into your Squad for a second chance.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween Event
For a less hair-raising experience, take a trip to your Animal Crossing island for it’s Halloween update. There you’ll be able to grow pumpkins to build pumpkin-based DIY projects, purchase Halloween costumes, and prepare for October 31st by loading up on candy. Once the big night arrives, Jack, the “czar of Halloween” will give you a visit to earn spooky in-game rewards when given candy.
Fortnitemares 2020: Midas’ Revenge
Beginning October 21 until November 3 is Fortnite’s Halloween Event of 2020 which introduces new items, Nightmare Royale, and much more.

Then, they will be able to fight the remaining survivors with the help of their special abilities (which even include possessing the body of vehicles).
But not only that, there are also some Halloween-themed weapons added to the map including the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher, Fiend Hunter Crossbow, and a Witch Broom you can ride around on. While messing with all this new content, there are also some challenges to earn spooky rewards like the Smash O’-Lantern Pickaxe, Midas’ Shadow Wrap, and more.
