What Halloween-themed cosmetic do you wish Blizzard would have added this year?
Yesterday, the Halloween Terror event started in Overwatch, and with it, we finally saw all the new skins and cosmetic goodies. Sure, Blizzard had posted a couple of the skins over the past week — but there was still a lot of anticipation among the playerbase regarding the remaining skins. And while the skins are fantastic — Slasher: 76 is a personal favorite of mine — their reveal means any potential Halloween skins you’d been hoping for will have to wait until at least next year.
It’s bittersweet in a way — we have a ton of new and exciting spooOoOoky things to collect, but we also know that our “Zombie Pumpkin Knight Brigitte” dreams may never come to pass. Even if they do come to pass, it’s at least another year before that can happen. This isn’t even something that’s exclusive to Overwatch.
Heroes of the Storm added its Halloween skins a couple weeks back, and while the new skins are great, there are still only so many of them. Meanwhile, World of Warcraft still hasn’t started its Halloween festivities, but there hasn’t been anything datamined worth really freaking out over (yet?). All in all, it seems like we’re close to set on what new goodies Blizzard’s various Halloween events have to offer this year.
As such, I’m sure I’m not the only one who had ideas and hopes for Halloween 2018 cosmetics that didn’t make the cut. Even if you didn’t have a design in mind, was there a specific hero you’d hoped to see get a Halloween skin in Heroes or Overwatch? Or did you have an idea that you’d really hoped to see, like my Zombie Pumpkin Knight Brigitte? For the WoW players out there, is there anything you’re hoping gets added at the last minute to make for a delightfully surprising Hallow’s End?
Sound off below! This is my favorite time of year, both in real life and in-game, so I’d love to hear what ideas Blizzard could use next go around!
