It’s that time of year once again, so Vox Machinae is back and spookier than ever with our wormageddon update! As some of you may recall, last year we debuted our spooky week content which added giant death-dealing worms in Blast Chamber and featured our skull achievement hat for a very limited time. Well let me tell ya, this year we’re taking things even further with the following appropriately spooky additions:
We like to call it Skull 2.0, but essentially we’ve added a new way to get an even more exclusive spooky week hat, so get to unlocking before the clock strikes midnight on halloween! Note that the original Skull hat achievement is once again enabled for the taking, so don’t miss it this time around.
You asked for it (again and again, you know who you are!), so we went ahead and did the unthinkable. With the new wormageddon remix mode enabled, worms will now spawn on any level of your choosing and in any mode. What’s more, they come out even more often than before, sometimes several slithering around at the same time! So better brush up on your dodging skillz, because those worms are out to get you!
We thought our old spooky week decorations could use some more… spookiness. That’s why we spared no expense and imported only the finest earth spiders to populate your hangar with webs. Also, someone must have left the green smoke machine on for far too long and flooded the hangar with an eerie green glow.
I knew someone would ask us that, so here’s the long and short of it. We wanted to put in all sorts of crazy awesome new stuff for this update. As we piled on the features though, it became abundantly clear that we had too much stuff to lump together with the spooky content. So we split them up, with spooky content heading out the door very soon, and a much more ambitious update following at a later date.
