Rockstar Games has announced its new Red Dead Online Halloween event has started and later this week will see the arrival of the new Halloween Pass 2.

But there is plenty of other stuff being planned, including a very spooky Call to Arms that includes battling against waves of strange adversaries.

There’s been no word on whether the Undead will be making an appearance in other forms this month, but we do know that there will be plenty of Tricks and Treats for those logging in.

A message from Rockstar Games provides more details on the modes being added to the game this week, telling fans:

“There are reports of new clashes at various settlements coming across the wire: telegrams read in hushed tones about confrontations with these strange and unsettling adversaries. Protecting the freeholds of Armadillo, Butcher Creek, Shady Belle, and Bolger Glade from attack in the seasonal All Hallows’ Call to Arms modes will earn you a pretty penny, namely 2X RDO$, Gold, and XP.

“These macabre standoffs include alligators and cougars hungry for flesh, and a supernatural ghost train haunting the town of Armadillo. Players who hold out and survive to the tenth wave of any All Hallows’ Call to Arms mode will be rewarded with 2,000 Club XP to redeem on the Halloween Pass 2.

“The same 2X Gold, RDO$, and XP bonus also applies to this week’s featured series, the seasonally appropriate Dead of Night — where four teams must compete for kills in a fight against the never-ending tide of The Dead. Completing any Dead of Night mode and emerging from the bloodbath this week will land you a Reward for a free Ability Card of your choosing.

“Both these seasonal modes feature a Night Stalker Mask that allows you to access supernatural powers and strengths beyond the limits of mere humanity. Use it wisely — if you dare.”
