So, how do you manage to make things feel spooky in a game like Final Fantasy XI when you have an entire expansion about getting sucked through time into a demonic maw? Well, you don’t. But you still celebrate the spookiness with the annual Harvest Festival, which has arrived once more to delight anyone with a love for the macabre. It’s bringing back all of the old favorites, and when a game has been running this long it has accumulated a large number of different Halloween celebrations.
There are costume contests to enter, trick-or-treat processions to enjoy, ordinary citizens in costumes you can trade sweets to for special prizes, and more. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a little longer to take part in all of the fun, as the harvest festival doesn’t start until October 24th. But that’s all right; you can wait just a little bit longer to enjoy the spooky parts of the festival, right?
