Blizzard reveals ‘Halloween Terror’ special event for ‘Overwatch’

Blizzard has revealed this year’s special Halloween event, “Halloween Terror 2017,” for “Overwatch.” The patch went live for PlayStation 4 and PC around 2 p.m. Tuesday. 

Promotional materials reveal that this event, like last year’s, will focus on the reign of terror of “Dr. Junkenstein,” a Halloween-themed version of the character Junkrat. 

The maps Hollywood and Eichenwalde will play host to the special “Junkenstein’s Revenge” game mode during the limited-time event (Oct. 10 – Nov. 1). 

In addition to last year’s Halloween costumes being unlockable during the event, there will also be new costumes, some of which leaked early on Reddit. Dragon Symmetra:

Mei, the Chinese scientist, will get a costume making her resemble a jiangshi, or Chinese hopping vampire. 

The ghostly killer, Reaper, appears to be getting a costume with black armor and a white helmet of some sort. 

The craziest costume revealed so far belongs to Zenyatta, who is transformed into a Lovecraftian nightmare with purple tentacles for a face and green eyes. 

Blizzard officially announced another skin for McCree that it calls Van Helsing-themed. 

The event also introduces Corsair Ana and Viking Torbjorn. 

Last but not least the questionably Halloween-themed Totally ‘80s Zarya outfit.
