Autumn is officially here, and with it, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Fall update – version 1.5 has rolled out.
Similar to the season in the real world, the Fall update in New Horizons comes with changes to the ambiance. One specific change would be the vegetation’s leaves, which either fall from the branches or shift in color.
Preparing for the Halloween Event
The environmental changes are, in part, what defines the new season. In other cases, this is also the time of the year when the Halloween event is celebrated; therefore, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will, for the first time, be launching its Halloween event on October 31st, between 5 p.m. and 12 a.m. regional time.
Moreover, it allows players to plant and grow pumpkins, a product that will play a major role during the event. Players in Animal Crossing: New Horizons would already know where to source the seeds in order to begin the planting. If you’re not familiar with the process, we’ll give you a hint: the NPC is an anthropomorphic sloth whose main merchandise is plants. Its name starts with the letter ‘L.’
Even though Halloween is an event that normally starts on its own as a tradition, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, an annual NPC will show up for the occasion. This time, Jack, or the Czar of Halloween, will re-appear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, just like he did in previous titles in the series.
Luna’s Dream Improvement
With the latest patch, the game aslo received some enhancement on Luna’s dream islands. Players can add previous islands they visited to ‘Favorite’ in order to make the venture to them easier to re-access. This new system is much simpler than having to re-enter a dream code to get on an island again.
This enhancement gives players the possibility to explore islands they did not visit in their entirety. Overall, the update makes the journey across dream islands a more approachable option for players.
