Minecraft Spookyfest is a special Halloween celebration that Mojang hosts every October. Since a lot of the playerbase celebrates this festival, it attracts a lot of fans to the game. The sandbox title is generally considered pretty scary, with mobs like Creepers and Wardens often jump-scaring players. Hence, the Spookyfest celebration fits well with the game.
During this time, Mojang offers loads of Halloween-themed features for players to explore and enjoy. Some of them are inside both the games (regular Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons), while others are real-life content that people can use. Since this is only focused towards Halloween, these features are only available for a limited time.

There are three free character creator items for players to build the Cloaked Skull Armor set. Other character creator items are behind the paywall.
Minecraft Dungeons Spooky Fall
This special minigame will only be available on Dungeons after October 26.
