Blizzard knows how to celebrate each holiday in-game with style, and this year was no different. So mark your calender’s this Halloween for the Overwatch Halloween Terror event, coming on 10 October!
What happened last year?
Last year, they boasted new skins, sprays, voice lines, and a brand new PvE event called Junkenstein’s Revenge. It allowed you to play as either Hanzo, Ana, Roadhog or McCree, fighting an army of Junkrat’s zombie-fied robots. It was fun, but short and limited, and hopefully it will be included this year as well!
