    The Witching Hour Returns with new Base Items, Feats, and Styles!

    All hell has broken loose in the streets of Gotham City and inside The Midnight Masquerade Nightclub! Go to the House of Legends and speak to the Phantom Stranger (Heroes) or to Tala (Villains) to receive further instructions. To queue for “The Midnight Masquerade,” go into your On Duty UI and look under the Events Tab.

    New Race!

    Travel to the House of Legends and take flight in the new "Multiplayer Aerial Movement Challenge: Flapping in the Night". You’ll be transformed into a vampire bat to race around Arkham Asylum! Earn new rewards and feats for achieving platinum, gold, and silver tiers.

    There are also new feats and new collections to be found for those brave enough:
    • Blinding Speed
    • One Fast Bat
    • Supersonic Wings
    • Flying Rats?
    • Authority of the Hunt
    • Lair of the Night Creatures
    Each day of the event, also look for “The Witching Hour” in your Mission Journal to complete and earn Spooky Bites! Shop using Teekl’s Halloween bucket for the latest in scare-wear, tricks, treats, and creepy items for your Base. You’ll even find a few extra special surprises, like the new Man-Bat inspired style items, the Spooky Bats Chroma Pack, and the Demon Bat Accessory! Level Requirement: 20

    Fall Vault

    The fall vault is back! Everyone can run the vault daily during The Witching Hour event. Find the Vault-O'-Lantern in the House of Legends for a special new mission that treats you with access to this themed vault.
