Halloween Overwatch event likely coming soon
Signs of an upcoming Halloween even for Overwatch made their way to consoles earlier than intended. The event announcement read as follows:
Celebrate Halloween with some frightening treats for your heroes during a new event: Overwatch Halloween Terror!
Trick out your collection by picking up Halloween Loot Boxes, available for a limited time*. Every Loot Box contains up to four cosmetic items, including at least one Halloween skin, spray, highlight intro, emote, victory pose, player icon, voice line, or credits that you can use to unlock other items. More than 100 Halloween items are waiting to be unwrapped!
If your Halloween Loot Box contains an item that is already in your collection, you will instead receive coins.
*Halloween Loot Boxes are available to purchase or earn in-game until 11/1/16 at 4p.m. PT.
Though the notice has since disappeared from consoles, we can reasonably expect this event to begin within the week. Blizzard Entertainment typically patches its games on Tuesdays, which would mark October 11 as the most likely start date of the event. However, that has not necessarily held true for Overwatch, perhaps due to its multiplatform nature. The Summer Games event for Overwatch was discovered early through the same methods and began within 24 hours of the console storefront leak.
Bring on the spooky scary skeletons, Blizzard. We’re ready.
