It was rumored that a new themed event would be coming to Overwatch soon, and today it has been revealed that it will be themed after Halloween. The game will be getting a new patch today, and it adds several new “spooky” things to the game for everyone to check out.
The Halloween event is called Halloween Terror, and it will run from October 11th to November 1st. There will be a new brawl mode called Junkenstein’s Revenge that features Junkrat as Dr. Junkenstein, as well as twelve new Halloween-themed skins that can be unlocked through loot boxes. All heroes in the game will also be able to use a new RIP victory pose, and the Hollywood map will be getting a haunted update.
As for the new Brawl mode, “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 an unexpected visitor 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.” You can get the complete scoop on this event by clicking right here.
