Halloween Terror event returns to Overwatch on October 10

Junkenstein's Revenge

Overwatch is about to get a little creepier. Last year’s Halloween Terror event was a hair-raising success, and according to a tweet from the official Overwatch account, the event will be making a return this year. At the moment, we don’t have any details about what the event will include. However, last year’s holiday included a ton of new skins and a custom brawl — Junkenstein’s Revenge.

Judging from the short clip posted to Twitter, it looks like we’ll be getting at least two new skins from this year’s event for Reaper and McCree.

Junkenstein’s Revenge was a 4 player coop brawl. Players chose between Hanzo, McCree, Ana, or Soldier: 76 to fight off waves and waves of zomnic enemies. In between, Junkenstein and his monster attacked. Essentially, it was Overwatch PVE — and a lot of fun. While it remains to be seen if the event will make a return, it feels likely. The Summer Games event this year had the return of Lucioball, so it seems natural we’d get another round of Junkenstein to play.

But I do find myself hoping that maybe we’ll get a different iteration this time around, with more character choices. Or maybe a different map entirely — how about a haunted Junkertown? We’ll have to wait and see, but we won’t be waiting long. Halloween Terror returns October 10.
