Counter-Strike Zombie Chickens Rise For Halloween

What's more fun than video games? Easter eggs and similar things slipped in games for the sole purpose of giving you a smile (or, you know, a fowl-based zombie to kill). Halloween is quickly approaching, and as it approaches gamers have been presented with what the company calls "A Murder Most Fowl". That is, a zombie chicken, which you can identify by its green color and outstretched feather-frocked wings. The zombie chickens aren't the only addition, however, with Valve going all-out in the holiday spirit.

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve has kicked off what it has called the Halloween "Mask-erade", which is a somewhat groan-worthy play on words. Game characters are wearing an assortment of masks — we've spotted everything from rabbit faces to evil pumpkins.

Also showing up is something they call "Ghost in the (Spent) Shell", which brings fallen players' ghosts to the battlefield, and there's also some note about wind chimes that can be heard but not seen. The best Halloween-themed change, though, are the zombie chickens.

Shoot one of the game's pervasive chickens, and it'll rise again as a green zombie chicken, mostly standing or bumbling around with its wings out. Any chicken'll do it, and you can, of course, kill the chicken a second time. Check out the video above to see all these things in action. Valve had this to say about the beasties:

BEWARE! For with all these treats, also come tricks. For too long the chickens of CS:GO have idly watched as their brethren were slaughtered by the droves, and on All Hollow's Eve there is no more room in Chicken Hell.
