A Month of Fantastical Fright

Spooktacular Stanton

2019 Pumpkin Carving Contest Entry by DeigenMustard2019 Pumpkin Carving Contest Entry by DeigenMustard
Fall is in the air, my friends, and with it comes a wonderful month of delightful terror!

All month long, Star Citizen is getting into the spirit (ha) of the season with Halloween fun, both in and out of the game.

In the 'verse, you can don the face of a fearsome foe, haunt your favorite off-the-map locations, and strut your terrifying teddy style with three new helmets (including two that are exclusively earnable IN-GAME!). Plus, celebrate Day of the Vara with Drake Interplanetary's brand-new Ghoulish Cutlass paint and take to the skies in the Esperia Vanduul Glaive & Gladius Free Fly.

In our world, carve or capture your way to some fabulous prizes with two Halloween-themed contests to keep you spooked all month long.

Keep reading to learn more!

Haunting Halloween Helmets

Throughout October, we’re spooky-ing up the ‘verse with not one, not two, but three different styles of terrifying helmets, each obtainable in different ways.

For both in-game challenge helmets, throughout the month of October, we’ll be distributing the helmets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to dish out the spoils to everyone who has recently completed the required task.

Snarling Vanduul Helmet (Earnable exclusively in-game!)

Show off your skills with the exclusively earnable Vanduul Helmet. Take out fifty unique player kills (not AI) while piloting the Vanduul Glaive OR Aegis Gladius (valiant/pirate count too!) in the persistent universe and you’ll unlock the terrifying helmet mirroring the UEE’s most fearsome foe. Don it to strike fear in the hearts of your enemies and show off your ace combat prowess.

*Note: Check out the details of this challenge in our FAQ on Spectrum.

Hill Horror Helmet (Earnable exclusively in-game!)

Not into the whole stabby stab killing thing? Take a more traditional path to terror with the Neville Lott inspired helmet. Unlock your own by taking a trip to the notoriously haunted Benny Henge during October. You wouldn’t want to see this lurking on a remote hiking trail that’s for sure…

Fieldsbury Dark Bear Helmets

Finally, terrifying teddies have come out of hibernation to celebrate the month of fright! Pick up one in your favorite color today or snag the whole group at a discounted pledge price with the Bear Helmet Pack.

Vanduul Glaive & Gladius Free Fly

Looking to reign terror throughout the ‘verse? Lucky you – throughout the month of October, all backers will have the Vanduul Glaive available to fly for free.
UPDATE – Due to some experiencing issues with the Vanduul Glaive, the Aegis Gladius is now available to fly for FREE for the month of October to all backers.

Drake Celebrates Day of the Vara

Day of the Vara is a holiday celebrated in the United Empire of Earth (UEE) annually on October 27. The holiday involves public festivals adorned with decorations in black and green and private gatherings convened to remember and honor the dead. Celebrants dress up as people who have passed away and swap scary stories, especially pertaining to mysterious incidents in space. It is seen by Humans as a day that gives equal weight to the joy of life and the macabre.

Learn more about Day of the Vara over on Galactapedia and take a deeper dive into the Vara itself, the origins of the holiday, and the celebrations and traditions we see in 2950 in the ‘verse!

This year, Drake Interplanetary is celebrating the season with a brand new Day of the Vara inspired paint able to spruce up your favorite Cutlass Black, Red, or Blue. Pick one of your very own up below!
