Darkness falls on the map of Verdansk as the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Halloween event kicks off. With the new update comes two iconic horror characters by way of new skins, including movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface arrives as well as Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. From new weapons to new moves — even vampire bats — there is a lot to enjoy in the latest Call of Duty for those celebrating Halloween safely from their homes.
“As Halloween draws near, a squad of operators drops in for what seems to be a normal infiltration into Verdansk, though there’s been back-channel chatter about some unexplained and odd occurrences across the remote areas of the map,” reads the latest blog post about the seasonal event. “Operators have been briefed about reports concerning a serial killer who wears his victim’s faces on his own. There’s scattered intel about strange sounds emanating from various locations within the warzone; and not least the piercing, creepy laugher of a ventriloquist doll.
“It isn’t long before hell breaks loose: One by one, the squad is brutally picked off until there is just one survivor, who after a confrontation with Verdansk’s own urban legend, vows to return under the cover of night and avenge his brothers in arms.”
The Haunting of Verdansk is the latest event with the newly arrive season six of the game and it brings with it a Halloween-inspired Trick or Treat rewards system. Special supply boxes contain spooky new gear and ways to customize, all in the name of adding that personal touch when taking to the event’s new modes. Oh, and zombies. Zombies have invaded Warzone.
The Haunting of Verdansk arrives in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzeon on October 20!
