Hallowed Nights will return October 24th! For the most part, Hallowed Nights will remain the same as last year but we threw in a couple new tricks and treats for you. The team is really focused on Return of Them content right now, and will be taking a short break from RoT after the next release as we prepare for Winter's Feast!
Next Thursday will also see the introduction of a brand new character DLC. Wurt is a curious young Merm trying to expand her horizons… as long as those horizons don’t extend into Pig territory.
Wurt can spot where danger is hiding in the swamp
Wurt can craft the Royal Tapestry and make a home for the Merm King and his Guards:
The Royal Tapestry requires materials from all over The Constant
The Merm King provides all Merms extra strength to fight
Wurt must feed the Merm King to prevent him from starving
Wurt can craft Merm Houses and Merm Flort-ifications
She moves faster while on the swamp and can craft tiles to expand her turf
Wurt is a vegetarian with a particular appreciation for Durians
Wurt can craft a Clever Disguise to get other survivors to blend in with her swamp friends
Likes to keep Pet Fish in her inventory
Strongly dislikes Pigs
Being wet does not affect her strong grip
Wurt will be unlocked in the following ways:
Wurt will be available for purchase for $5.99, in the Wurt Chest. Wurt’s Guest of Honor skin set is included in this chest for free.
The Wurt Deluxe Chest is $9.99 and includes the Guest of Honor, Triumphant and Abyssal skin sets.
Wurt is part of the new "Starter Pack" that can now be purchased with a New Megapack Bundle. Current Megapack Bundle owners will be able to upgrade for $6.99. The starter pack includes Wurt, 4 Classic Characters Skins, a new spear skin, hound backpack and Green Pajamas and Bedroll.
You can weave Wurt for 2700 spool.
We also have some new skins that have been added to the Hallowed Nights collection and we will also be increasing the drop rarity for skins during Hallowed Nights.
Finally, we will be adding a Loyal login bonus item for all players during the event as well as new Twitch drops! We expect this release to hit on the 24th for both PC and console.
The next Return of Them beta update "Hook, Line and Inker" should release early November. But as always, that is an estimate and things could change, expect more details about a week before release.
Of course, we will also have a new spooky edition animated short for you all, and I think the team really outdid themselves on this one. We can't wait for you all to check it out.
Till next time!
