You can experience it all: During the event period, you can find witch fires scattered throughout the game world. Big burning bonfires on which a scarecrow is being burned. This is supposed to drive away evil spirits.
The developers have distributed items around these campfires, which are also available for the first time in the game and which can only be collected during the period of the event:
- Cauldron: A large cooking pot
- Witch Hat: A witch hat – obviously
- Witch Hood: A Walpurgis style Hoodie in 3 different colors
- Birch Broom: A broom that you can use as a weapon. Otherwise, you can break it into useful sticks
- Crooked Nose: A cosmetic item to “beautify” your nose
You can collect these items until May 16 and experience the eerily beautiful atmosphere of Walpurgis Night. We are pleasantly surprised that Bohemia is adding new, timely events to the game. What are you thinking about that? Write us in the comments below!
