Entropia Universe and Planet Calypso may be virtual worlds known mostly to MMORPG players for their wacky stories – like the time an in-game rifle sold for over $50K US, or the time a player gave back $10K US because of a crappy auction system. But that doesn’t mean they can’t slip into the holiday spirit. With lootboxes! OK, and other stuff too, including challenge missions for both soloers and PvPers.
“The annual Merry Mayhem hunt is now underway and runs until Monday, Jan. 15, giving players the opportunity to scour for holiday-themed items during the harsh winter conditions. This year, Merry Mayhem is completely revamped, with ten separate categories each containing their own unique prize pools for players to collect. Participants will be tested with time-based combat against bosses and spawning creatures to hold the top spot in their category. Defeated enemies are stocked full of loot in the form of Mayhem Tokens, which can be exchanged for exclusive items from the Mayhem Token Vendor.”
The events run through January 15th with results and prizes rolling out in early February.
