Overwatch’s Spooky Halloween Event Launches October 13th

Big scares and scary frights are on the way in Overwatch.

It’s that time of year again. The time where people dress up in costumes, carve pumpkins and pretend that candy corn actually tastes good. But for Overwatch players it also means enjoying the Overwatch Halloween Terror event.

Over on Overwatch’s Twitter, a short teaser trailer has been released to give players a glimpse into this year’s event. The trailer shows off a few older skins, but more importantly we see what this year’s character skins are.


Highlighted in the trailer are new skins for D.Va sporting what looks like a little devil outfit. There’s also Sigma looking like a ghost pirate and Echo as some kind of stitched-together monstrosity. Brigitte looks pale and statue-like, and Sombra is glowing green. And at the end of the trailer is Winston sporting a werewolf costume.

The spooky time is upon us for sure and we can’t wait to pick up these skins for all our favourite characters as well as new sprays, emotes and more. Halloween Terror also means that players will be able to play Junkenstein’s Revenge as many times as they like before the event is over.

Overwatch’s Halloween Terror 2020 event runs from October 13th to November 3rd so jump in tomorrow to join in on the fun.
