Cult of the Lamb Has a New Halloween Event, the Blood Moon Festival

Cult of the Lamb Blood Moon Festival

Are you ready for Cult of the Lamb to get even spookier? Maybe?

The reason for our uncertainty is that Cult of the Lamb is pretty spooky and sinister already. This cult-management/roguelike mash-up launched back in August and sees you attempting to recruit enough people to resurrect an Elder God. How much more horrifying could the game’s seasonal Blood Moon Festival get?

The answer is, not much, but you should still absolutely dive into this content. Instead of trying to scare you, it focuses on warping your woodland followers. Tired of the way your devotees look? Let them adopt the form of the Cursed Crow, the Skeletal Deer, and the Bat Demon.

On top of that, there are new spooky decorations, all of which will be available till November 10th. Developer Massive Monster has also confirmed that there’ll be other seasonal events – we can’t wait to see what they unleash this Christmas.

However, seasonal content isn’t the only thing that Massive Monster has been working on. Aside from announcing the Blood Moon Festival, which is available now, they’re tweaking Cult of the Lamb’s combat with a “focus on combat and expanding dungeon gameplay”.

“We know that many of you have asked for more depth so that is what we’re hoping to deliver,” the developer explains. We were fine with Cult of the Lamb’s combat and awarded the game a 9 out of 10 in our review, so we’re eager to see just how much extra polish the developer can add.

However, we’ll have to wait as there’s no confirmed date for the combat update. But, in the mean time, we can settle for sprucing up our cult shrine, just in time for Halloween. And if you’ve yet to dive into Cult of the Lamb it’s out on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
