Picture through Participant First Video games
It’s that point of yr once more — the time when video video games begin celebrating the spooky season of Halloween. Fortnite has Fortnitemares, Roblox has new Halloween halo solutions, and MultiVersus is stepping into the spirit with its personal occasion.
As detailed within the newest patch notes, that occasion is all about sweet. Enjoying in opposition to different folks or bots in matches earns you various quantities of sweet primarily based on whether or not you win or lose and what number of fighters are current. You’ll additionally earn bonus sweet by taking part in as Gizmo in his Halloween costume or any of the opposite new Halloween outfits. There are seven Halloween costumes altogether, and so they look superb — simply take a look at vampire Tom and Jerry on the high of this text.
Nonetheless, there’s a giant caveat for anybody trying to unlock these cool costumes. Solely two of them — Mummy Reindog and Calico Cake (for Journey Time‘s Jake) — may be bought utilizing earned sweet. The opposite 5 will price you Gleamium, MultiVersus’ premium foreign money. Their costs range, however they’re nonetheless not low-cost. You’re more than likely going to need to open your pockets in order for you a selected outfit, a lot much less the entire set. Moreover, the elevated sweet earnings solely apply for those who play as Gizmo or the newly launched Stripe, at the least till you unlock a Halloween costume. When you can’t afford to unlock both of them along with your present gold, you then’re once more paying cash.
VGC calculated that gamers would want to do a minimal of 783 video games to earn sufficient sweet to unlock Reindog and Jake’s costumes and the 2 different cosmetics within the sweet store. That quantity goes up for those who don’t carry out your finest or win each time, that means you’ll in all probability need to play greater than 800 video games in whole. Once more, that is assuming you keep away from paying any real-world cash, nevertheless it’s nonetheless a discouraging quantity to see — particularly when the costumes look so good.
