It’s all About the Skins
As with each seasonal event in Overwatch, the Halloween Terror event comes with several new skins. Halloween Terror skins have consistently been some of the best in the game, and this year is no exception.

This year, as it has been with year’s past, players can enjoy the PvE mode, Junkenstein’s Revenge, which pits a series of heroes against hordes of enemies as players try to protect Eichenwalde’s 2nd point gate. In years past, there have been different heroes to choose from, but this year fans will get to play as a variety of different heroes including Genji, Hanzo, McCree, Soldier: 76, Torbjorn, Tracer, Widowmaker, Zenyatta, Brigitte and Ana.
When is it Over?
The event starts today, October 15, and runs all the way through November 4. Players have that long to acquire the gold needed to buy the seasonal skins and to complete the PvE mission detailed above.
At that point, BlizzCon will be starting up and the Overwatch World Cup (OWWC) will be in full swing. If this is your first time hearing about the World Cup, head on over to our OWWC Power Rankings to see which countries are looking the hottest going into BlizzCon.
