PC Gamer scored a hands-on of the Halloween update, Shadow of the Mad King, which goes live today. The video below shows staffer Tom S running around the event areas, throwing pumpkins which promptly explode on impact, and just seeing all the ghastly going-ons available this week.
We can’t wait to get our hands on the Halloween weapons, like that Moon shield and Spider bow which appear at around the 2:00 in the vid. ArenaNet also seems to have gone all out on the festive decorations; there are floating candles along the streets and cauldrons with sickly green brews in them that turn you into little monsters if you jump in them.
Looking good we must say. Look forward to our coverage when the curtains lift later.
