Just in time for Halloween, BATTLE PETS are coming to  Dark Blood to cast their wicked spells!  Play with them, fight with them, even go Trick or Treating with them - these loyal sidekicks will become your BFFs as they release pulse AOEs that scorch enemies, lodge spit balls to take down the baddest of bosses, and clear dungeons with spin attacks that smash up mobs.  They'll even buff you to boot!  These combat companions begin life as just an innocent little egg to nurture and love, but once they evolve, look out!  They're party animals!  

Target date for the Dark Blood Battle Pets content update and debut trailer is next  Thursday, October 25.  For a sneak peek at Battle Pets, fans can check out the Dark Blood Facebook page at where a different pet is being featured each weekday through launch.
