Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Last night I posted some spoiler info (including the splash screen) about the upcoming Halloween/THOH event. This morning I want to clue you all in on the story that will be taking place.
Once again, spoilers will appear after the fold So if you don’t want to know, don’t click below. Now let’s get to it…
WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD
Here’s the Synopsis as presented by EA…
The Draculas are teased when they go out in public when it’s not Halloween. Upset that they couldn’t go out, Dracula vows to give them all a reason to be scared. Nobody is. Countess Dracula steps up to change the hearts and minds of Springfield, by turning them into minions. She attacks Flanders but discovers he bathes in holy water, and that since Homer steals water from Flanders his family is also protected. Ned and Homer start using pickaxes from the Holy Forge to dig up relics at some Old Ruins in order to fight the evils. When the vampire minions begin to increase in number, Flanders brings out the Flanders Family Tome to cleanse all the monsters at once. Countess Dracula threatens the town, insisting that her minions will scatter to the dark corners of Springfield. Lisa has an idea to lure the minions to the Old Ruins by making it dark and scary, where they can be cleansed. Countess Dracula doesn’t understand how the laziest town in the country can rally together to fight her. Homer tells her if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, and she decides to settle in Springfield.
And here are a couple of image sneakpeeks…
