The fright for the future has begun, heroes, and for the next three weeks, they’re celebrating the spookiest time of the year in true Overwatch fashion—with a brand new seasonal event! Explore the haunted streets of Hollywood, expand your collection of themed holiday items, and relive a chilling tale in our first-ever PvE brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge!
Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with special glowing jack-o’-lanterns, and they’re filled to the brim with over 100 new cosmetic treats! As with our previous events, any Loot Box you earn or purchase from now until the event concludes will contain at least one item from our Halloween 2016 collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more!
While the contents of each Halloween Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these creepy customization options with credits in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration.
Once you’ve unlocked a Halloween item, it will be yours forever, which means that you can look terror-ific all year round. The collection will be crawling back into the vault on November 1, however, when the event concludes, so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and dig in before it’s too late!
Players will choose from the Alchemist (Ana), the Archer (Hanzo), the Gunslinger (McCree), or the Soldier (Soldier: 76) and defend Adlersbrunn castle’s doors against Dr. Junkenstein’s onslaught! Heroes will need to work together and develop strategies to withstand not only the advances of his macabre entourage, but also wave after wave of zomnic attacks.
In the meantime, Overwatch Halloween Terror is live RIGHT NOW on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, so grab your largest candy bag, put on some spine-chilling music, and get ready to test your mettle against Junkenstein’s metal minions.
