There’s now a way to celebrate Halloween in Cult of the Lamb, as the Blood Moon Festival event is live. Between October 24, 2022 and November 10, 2022, people can take part in new activities, activate a new ritual, and get new Follower forms. You’ll also start seeing Followers you’ve lost along the way again roaming around the world.
Here’s a trailer going over the Cult of the Lamb Blood Moon Festival and its Halloween-themed activities. It takes its time going through the new things people can do in the game. It starts off with a peek at the Lamb performing the Blood Moon Ritual. When performed, you can spend 40 pumpkins to create a Blood Moon for three days. This makes your fallen Followers appear again. When they return, you can send the Lamb around to capture them in their book. You can unlock the Blood Moon Tree during this time. This also means new decorations, like ones that resemble the Dia de Los Muertos sugar skulls. Following that, the three new Follower forms appear.
It isn’t uncommon for games with simulation elements to celebrate special occasions. For example, Animal Crossing: New Horizons includes a Halloween event. Cozy Grove also features a Fall Festival at the end of October.
Cult of the Lamb is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the Halloween Blood Moon Festival will run until November 10, 2022.
