ARK: Survival Evolved Halloween Event Fear Evolved Adds Ghost Creatures

Posted by | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

The annual Halloween event for ARK: Survival Evolved is now live. Fear Evolved adds spooky chibis, ghost skins, and a return of previous years’ favorite items, monsters, and skins.

The two big Fear Evolved boss monsters, DodoRex and DodoWyvern, make their terrifying return, along with zombie wyverns and skeletal dinosaurs. The zombie wyverns will actually remain after the event ends if you can tame them.

New additions are the ghost dinosaurs and creatures, including Ghost Rex, Ghost Mantis, and Ghost Direwolf. By killing ghost creatures in the wild, you can acquire their ghost skins to customize your own beasts.

By killing DodoWyvern and DodoRex you can find new skeletal chibis, adorable little pets that follow you around. Eleven new chibi pets are given the skeletal treatment, including Trike, Raptor, and Rex.

Other new additions include spooky emotes, creature event colors, and Halloween-themed clothing items, many of which have been featured in previous years.

While the event lasts, breeding, harvesting, and taming will all go twice as fast. You’ll also earn experience at double the normal rate.

Fear Evolved is going on now and lasts through November 6 on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. ARK is also available on Switch and mobile devices.

ARK: Survival Evolved is rated T for Teen.

Pokémon GO Halloween Event Begins this Week

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Can you guess which kind of Pokémon will more frequently appear during Pokémon GO’s seasonal Halloween event? We’ve had three years of Halloween events and by now you know the drill: more Ghost and Dark-type Pokémon will be found in the wild, hatched from eggs, and appear in raids starting this Thursday, October 17 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern.

The big difference this year is that a new generation of Pokémon has been added since last year, with the Spirit Pokémon Yamask making its debut during the Halloween event. Darkrai can be found elusively in five-star raid battles.

Another new addition are Pokémon wearing costumes. During the Halloween event you can find Bulbasaur wearing Shedinja costumes, Charmander wearing Cubone costumes, and Squirtle wearing Yamask costumes. These costume-wearing Pokémon can be found in raid battles, but a Mimikyu-wearing Pikachu can be found in the wild, and all of them have a rare chance of appearing as shiny versions.

New Shadow Pokémon from Team Rocket have also been added, including Weedle, Beedril, Lapras, Sableye, and Duskull. Shadow Pokémon can be fought and rescued from Team GO Rocket Grunts at PokéStops.

The Halloween event also features new dress-up avatar items, new Field Research tasks, and double the candy bonuses for catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon.

The Pokémon GO Halloween event begins Oct. 17 and ends Friday, Nov. 1. It’s available on iOS and Android mobile devices and rated E for Everyone.
