Darkness falls on Central Plaza this week, as ghosts and ghouls alike rise from their graves and converge upon PlayStation Home for an evil event full of unspeakable horrors beyond what the human mind can fathom. We have tons of spooktacular content coming just in time for this weekend’s Halloween festivities, so log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday, October 27th and check out this monstrous update!
The celebration begins with the launch of Aurora v1.3 and continues with some devilish community events courtesy of nDreams. Visit Aurora on Friday, October 28th to start the nDreams’ Halloween competition; visit the space on Monday, October 31st and join the nDreams team for their 19-hour “Around-the-World” Halloween party. Whizzing around the globe on their broomsticks, nDreams staff will be hosting the Truly Terrifying Quiz in Aurora and handing out some spellbinding prizes. The party starts in the dead hours of the morning on October 31st and ends shortly before the clock strikes midnight – so log in to PlayStation Home this Hallows Eve to take part in this special nDreams event!
