Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event returns next week

We’re already stoked for the new skins

Overwatch’s annual Halloween event will kick off next Tuesday, Oct. 10, Blizzard announced, and will run until Nov. 2. A teaser attached to an accompanying tweet doesn’t reveal much, but it’s enough to get us excited about the return of Dr. Junkenstein, among other new event exclusives — like holiday-themed skins.

Last year’s Halloween Terror campaign featured an exclusive PvE mode, called Junkenstein’s Revenge. Based on the teaser, it seems as though Blizzard will bring back the cooperative game-type for this year’s installment — Dr. Junkenstein, otherwise known as Junkrat, is featured front-and-center.

Also seen in at the very end of teaser is a brief look at some new skins. It’s hard to say what, exactly, these costumes are referencing, but our best guess is that a Van Helsing McCree and a newly pumpkin head-less Reaper will be part of this year’s festivities. Could the new costumes be a sign of some bigger changes for Halloween Terror? That remains to be seen.

As for the rest of the new skins, our friends over at Heroes Never Die have a wishlist of Halloween costumes for our favorite Overwatch heroes. Take a look at that, and we’ll see if Blizzard delivers when Halloween Terror begins next week.
