The color of the leaves are changing, the nights are becoming more chiller and they are arriving earlier and earlier each day. With the fall season comes my favorite holiday, Halloween.
With previous years I spent my time in World of Warcraft celebrating by participating in Blizzard’s Halloween themed world events; trick or treating around the world, putting out fires in the local low-level towns, and gathering a party of players to go head to head against the Headless Horseman in my yearly attempt to get the elusive flying horse mount.
But this is the first Halloween that I am not subscribed to WoW and I was a bit worried that I would miss out in participating any special gaming events with other gamers.
That is why I want to thank Valve’s famous war-themed hat simulator, Team Fortress 2, for filling that seasonal void. In preparation for Valve’s upcoming Halloween event I was decided to abandon my go to Tf2 maps and join the odd seasonal maps.
Ghost Fort is one of the few re-skinned Tf2 maps of their lakeside King of the Hill stage but with the added twist that a random effect that is applied to every member on the two teams.
The over the top spooky atmosphere and map twist was fun enough to not only lose a few more hours of gameplay into the never-ending game but it scratched my itch for a proper seasonal multiplayer game.
With getting caught up in the Halloween I might even temporarily lift my ban on equipping silly Tf2 hats and items…
