Overwatch Halloween Terror Begins Today, New Items and PvE Brawl

Michael Chu's Avatar Posted by Lead Writer, Overwatch

Hi PlayStation gamers. The fright for the future has begun, and for the next three weeks, we’re celebrating the spookiest time of the year in true Overwatch fashion — with a brand new seasonal event! Explore the haunted streets of Hollywood, expand your collection of themed holiday items, and relive a chilling tale firsthand in our first PvE Brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge!

Welcome to the Overwatch Halloween Terror.

Trick or Treat

Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with special glowing jack-o-lanterns, and they’re filled to the brim with more than 100 new cosmetic treats! As with our previous events, any Loot Box you earn or purchase from now until the event concludes will contain at least one item from our Halloween 2016 collection — including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more!

While the contents of each Halloween Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these creepy customization options with credits in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration.

Once you’ve unlocked a Halloween item, it will be yours forever, which means that you can look terror-ific all year round! The collection will be crawling back into the vault on November 1, however, when the event concludes, so be sure to fire up your PS4 and dig in before it’s too late!

Double-Double Toil and Trouble

During the Halloween event, you’ll also be able to participate in Overwatch’s first-ever co-op PvE Brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge. Team up with three other players and face off against a host of eerie enemies, including Dr. Junkenstein himself, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Reaper, a mysterious witch, and host of shambling zomnics.

As told in the “Dr. Junkenstein’s Monster” comic, this terrifying tale follows Dr. Jamison Junkenstein, an inventor and scientist who was once employed by the Lord of Adlersbrunn.

Junkenstein’s dream was to create artificial life, but the Lord of Adlersbrunn mocked the scientist and his creations, calling him a fool and dismissing him from service. Slighted, Junkenstein vowed to prove the lord wrong, and when a mysterious witch showed up and offered the key to perfecting his creation, Junkenstein’s Monster was born.

Now Junkenstein plans his revenge against the Lord of Adlersbrunn, and only four heroes stand in the way…

Players will choose from the Alchemist (Ana), the Archer (Hanzo), the Gunslinger (McCree), or the Soldier (Soldier: 76) and defend Adlersbrunn castle’s doors against Dr. Junkenstein’s onslaught. Heroes will need to work together and develop strategies to withstand wave after wave of zomnic attacks. Will you be able to keep your cool when Junkenstein’s Monster appears?

Overwatch Halloween Terror is live right now on PS4 and the event will end on November 1. So jump in and check out the new items, and test your mettle against Junkenstein’s metal minions.

The Monster awaits.

    Well I stopped playing when I got the platinum and the thing is the loot box system is for people who love addictions such as Destiny. I bet one can play the whole month getting the same ****** halloween skin for a boring character like Roadhog while waiting for that D.Va/Mercy skin, or whatever your mains are.
    TBH, the only game who got in-game transactions right is GTAV. Long live the king Rockstar.

Thanks to Blizzard this is gonna be the only thing I play for LONG time

Sorry Tomb Raider
