Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017: When the Event Ends


Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017: When the Event Ends

RIP free time until November.


One of Overwatch’s most popular seasonal events is back for a second year, with not only some new skins but some new tweaks to the PvE Junkenstein’s Revenge brawl as well.

Last year, you could play as either Soldier: 76, Hanzo, Ana, or McCree and take on waves of robotic enemies as they try and break down the castle doors on the spookified Eichenwalde map. This year, four new heroes are playable to mix up the format, including Widowmaker, Zenyatta, Genji, and Torbjorn. Also it looks like Symmetra (with an awesome new skin by the way) will be a featured villain in Junkenstein’s army, with last year’s group also including the Reaper, Junkenstein’s Monster (Roadhog), and the Witch (Mercy).

Last year the Halloween Terror event ran from Oct. 11 – Nov. 1, and this year we’re lucky enough to get an extra day with the Halloween Terror 2017 seasonal event starting today on Oct. 10 and running until Nov. 1.

You can check out all the new skins here, as well as the returning skins from last year that will be priced significantly lower at only 1000 coins for a legendary. The Trick-or-Treat loot-boxes will be coming back during the event, and along with the skins there is also a new highlight intro for Roadhog and two new emotes for Mei and Torbjorn.
