A special mission to defeat Scarecrow will be automatically issued to 'DC Universe' players of all levels.

The holidays are a really fun time to play games with a strong online presence, and that goes double for MMOs. There's always something interesting in store, and this year is no exception.

The folks at Sony Online Entertainment are adding holiday fun to a good chunk of their online titles, including 'DC Universe,' which gets an added Scarecrow encounter, new Halloween themed pets, a pumpkin head of your own and plenty of other loot that you'll only be able to get until November 7th.

'EverQuest' is getting a few tricks, like throwable pumpkins, and treats, like a special aura. For those that prefer 'EQII,' there will be Halloween themed quests and items aplenty. You'll even get some goodies just for logging on. 'Free Realms' players will be able to get costumes, enter a dance competition and even buy themselves a special werewolf mount.

Special Halloween events will also be occurring for players of 'Magic: The Gathering - Tactics,' 'PoxNora,' and 'Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures.'
