As soon as the calendar read October 1st, KingsIsle flipped their Halloween switch and unleashed all manner of darkness and demons back into the spiral. Talk about wasting no time! Although most of 2018's spookiness are old favorites, KingsIsle did supply some new surprises for the brave wizards of the spiral. advertisement Elven Nightmare PackNew to the spiral this year is the Elven Nightmare pack. Instead of going full creepy like past Halloween packs have, KingsIsle opted to take a different route with this one. The pack itself is a clash between good and evil.

If you’re feeling the burning desire to reminisce in City of Heroes and hang out with other people who understand why it was so damn magical, today is your day. The HERC crew at the Titan Network have put together their annual shindig, running today from 3 p.m. EDT for about eight hours, so you can swing by as time permits or camp out the entire day. Organizers say there will be several costume contests again, this time themed around the different origins, as well as a character biography contest.
