Trick or treat!
It’s the month of October, and where there’s October, there’s Halloween. With Overwatch having debuted earlier this year and each character sporting a variety of costumes, it’s likely that the hero shooter is going to celebrate the holiday somehow, and that somehow may just come in the form of loot boxes.
One Reddit user on the Xbox One was able to buy the loot boxes before the option to buy them got taken down. The description asks for you to “celebrate Halloween with some frightening treats for your heroes!” with the new event, dubbed “Overwatch Halloween terror”. Each loot box will have at least one themed skin, highlight intro, emote, victory pose, player icon, voice line, or credits. If there’s a box you’ve already got in your collection, you’ll just receive coins instead.
The Halloween Terror event doesn’t have an announced start date, but it’s said to wrap up on Nov. 1 at 4 PM Pacific time.
