Also, keep an eye out for future announcements. We are in the process of *potentially* adding a Christmas themed downloadable content pack to Hallowed Encounter. Players would experience a new level of Hallowed Encounter with all the Christmas spirit. Let us know what you think of this idea! We're currently gauging fan feedback for this new feature.

Happy Holidays!
