  • 'Overwatch' Halloween Event Trailer Teases the Return of Junkenstein, New Skins

The Overwatch Halloween Terror event has officially begun and it's full of spooky surprises that players can unlock and uncover. Thus far developer Blizzard has only officially revealed new skins for Reaper and McCree, but images of a few more appear to recently leaked via Facebook.

Check out the Overwatch Halloween event trailer below, followed by some screenshots. You'll find new skins for many characters including Ana and Widowmaker and the usual sprays, icons and more.

The design will be the same as last year's, popping up in special Jack-o-lantern boxes until November 2.

As teased last week, Blizzard has rolled out the latest seasonal event for its popular multiplayer shooter Overwatch.

Called Junkenstein's Revenge: Endless Night, the mode is now available in the Arcade.

Following a week of leaks and fevered speculation, Blizzard has finally, officially raised the dark, unholy shroud obscuring details of Overwatch's 2017 Hallowe'en celebrations.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you know that Overwatch has been a smash hit in the gaming community; especially with regards to eSports competitions.

As an added bonus, the old skins introduced past year were also available at a slightly cheaper price. In fact, players from across different platforms, the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC, will be able to experience the event simultaneously starting October 10, Friday. Blizzard, I must say you did a top-notch job on these skins. The month-long extravaganza includes new skins for the game's heroes, fresh cosmetic items, and a new game mode that pits four people against zombie robots.
