Overwatch is getting extra spooky this Halloween

Blizzard has revealed all the new content coming to Overwatch as part of its spooky, quirky and fabulous Halloween event.

The seasonal event is now active on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and will give players the opportunity to earn unique loot until it concludes on 1 November.

All of your favourite heroes have been spookified with new skins, sprays, victory poses and voice lines to suit the occasion. These can be unlocked by opening loot boxes or spending in-game currency.

In addition to a bunch of new loot, Blizzard has also added a new Brawl Event known as “Junkenstein’s Revenge”. You can check out a more detailed description below:

“During this year’s Halloween Terror 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.”

The introduction of Overwatch’s Halloween event comes shortly after a handful of details regarding Sombra, a long-rumoured hero, emerged online.

Time will tell whether or not Blizzard has plans to introduce her during the seasonal event, or will wait until later this year.

For now, it’s time to enjoy the spooky array of skins available to players until next month. We’ve included some of our favourites below.
