Minecraft has a strong tradition of celebrating Halloween and this year is no different. According to a Microsoft, Minecraft's Halloween Server Spooktacular is coming to “haunt your pixelated dreams” starting until October 31.

For the next 20 days, Minecraft players on the Bedrock Engine can trick-or-treat across servers hosted by various companies.

Each server is filled to the brim with activities but here are some of the main ones you'll find:

  • Lifeboat Servers: Hostile zombie invasions will take over the Lifeboat lobby throughout the course of Spooktacular. There, players can enter a thrilling haunted house parkour course.
  • InPVP Servers: InPVP has players hopping from gravestone to gravestone with the Haunted Mansion SkyWars map or exploring creepy houses to find surprises.
  • Mineplex Servers: In Mineplex, players come face-to-face with The Pumpkin King for random quests and boxes filled with goodies. There are also random events which grant you even better rewards.

Now, you might be wondering if you have to pay to access the event? The answer is no. It's free. Personal Minecraft Realms are the servers you have to pay for. The Halloween Server Spooktacular is open to everyone on the Bedrock versions of the game, which excludes PlayStation 4 and the PC's Java Edition. Just log into a modern version of Minecraft and join the servers for lots of thrills!
