PSA: Dying Light and GTA Online Hosting Halloween Events This Weekend

October 31, 2015 Written by Zarmena Khan

If you’re not Trick-or-Treatin’ tonight, you might want to partake in one or both of the Halloween events that Dying Light and Grant Theft Auto Online will be hosting this weekend. 

Techland has issued a challenge to all Dying Light players, with some “cool digital goodies” to give away. All you have to do is boot up the game on Hard Mode tonight, switch off all the lights, put on your headphones, and see how long you can survive in the game without entering the safe zone. You need to then share your unique stories on Techland’s social media accounts with the hashtag #GoodNightGoodFright, and if your entry is one of the best ones, you’ll be in for some rewards. The trailer posted above might help to get you in the spirit!

As for GTA Online, there was a Halloween update earlier this week (detailed here), following which the Halloween weekend event kicked off. Those who log in each of the three days (Friday-Sunday) can unlock these exclusive t-shirts:

Knife After Dark – Friday, October 30th
Psycho Swingers – Saturday, October 31st
Zombie Liberals From The Midwest – Sunday, November 1st

There’s a new playlist to accommodate the recently announced Slasher Adversary Mode, featuring three different versions of Slasher accessible directly from the GTA V launch screen (or Rockstar Playlists if you’re already in game). There’s also a Halloween Snapmatic contest and Event Sweepstakes, the details for which are as follows:

#HALLOWEEN SNAPMATIC CONTEST
Social Club members will no doubt be taking the opportunity to grab some Snapmatics of the awesome new vehicles and masks from the Halloween Surprise while they are still available in GTA Online. We’re upping the ante to give you a little extra incentive to get your pictures published to Social Club and shared with the world. Whether it’s ghoulish masks lit from an odd angle by the new flashlight, or perhaps you’ve found the perfect spot to capture the new Lurcher Hearse or Franken Strange… To enter, simply publish your Snapmatic to Social Club by Sunday night and make sure that you’ve tagged it with #Halloween on Social Club. Then, keep an eye on the Rockstar Newswire as we’ll be announcing the winners sometime next week along with the winners of last weekend’s #Lowriders photo contest as well.

HALLOWEEN EVENT SWEEPSTAKES
If you want to get ahead of the game with an outfit idea for Halloween 2016, we’re giving away 5 very special Social Club Event Weekend Sweepstakes Prize Packs, each containing three different costume ideas: the Bugstar boiler suit, the Merryweather t-shirt and the Los Santos Lifeguard t-shirt. If you prefer to keep your Halloween weekend a little more sedate, perhaps with a séance in the woods, we’ve got your covered with the GTAV Body Bag Sleeping Bag, as well as a Epsilon Program candle to help light your way. We’re also throwing in a few Rockstar and GTAV stickers for good measure. If you want to have a chance of winning one of these five prize packs, head over to the Social Club Events Page now and enter using our supremely simple entry form.

Have a great weekend, folks!
