Matt Sayer 11 October 2017 NEWS


Get in the Halloween mood with a bunch of frightful content for Blizzard's hit online shooter.

As teased last week, Blizzard has rolled out the latest seasonal event for its popular multiplayer shooter Overwatch. Dubbed Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017, the event packs plenty of new horror-themed content for players to sink their teeth into, with fresh skins, redesigned maps and a brand new mode now available.

From now until 2 November, you'll be able to unlock over 50 new seasonal items, from spooky skins to quirky emotes. All 2016's Halloween Terror items make their return, too, in case you missed them last year.


The wave-based Junkenstein's Revenge mode has been augmented with a new endless option, so you can team up with your friends and compete against the world through online leaderboards to see who can survive the longest. In regular Overwatch, meanwhile, the Hollywood and Eichenwalde maps have received spooky makeovers to help set the Halloween mood.

On the skin front, there are plenty of brilliant new outfits to unlock, including a Dracula skin for Reaper, a Van Helsing skin for McCree and a Cultist skin for Zenyatta.

Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017 runs from 11 October to 2 November, and is available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game.
