Halloween Comes to Overwatch!

Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’awl’s neighbourhood…

For the next three weeks, be prepared to be terrorised… by two demon Hanzos on attack.

Overwatch is turning spooky! Similar to the Olympics theme, the lovely people at Blizzard are treating us to a bunch of new cosmetic items to liven up our favourite characters (or decay them a bit) until November 1st! When you log on next, you’ll receive a free Halloween Loot Box, and every Loot Box you receive afterwards will get the same pumpkin treatment. There’re over 100 cosmetic items to collect. And yes, you CAN buy them with your coins, although they’re a little more pricey than normal.


Not only this, but during this year’s Halloween event brawl, you’ll be able to participate in Overwatch’s first-ever co-op PvE Brawl, up against Dr. Junkenstein (Junkrat), Junkenstein’s Monster (Roadhog), the Reaper (… Reaper), a mysterious witch (Mercy), and whole lot of shambling zomnics. Following Blizzard’s latest comic named “Junkenstien“, you can pick between Hanzo, Soldier 76, Ana, or McCree in defending the castle’s doors in Eichenwalde against the evil.

Too spooky for me…
