Just like “Pokemon GO,” a Halloween-themed event is soon coming to Blizzard’s “Overwatch.” The studio has already announced the return of Halloween Terror. It will start next week and run for the rest of the month. Players will be able to earn new cosmetic items. The event will go live on Oct. 10 and will end on Nov. 02.

Will there be a return of Junkenstein’s Revenge?

The event will go live on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The teaser video for the event is already a rage. Viewers can take a look at the new Halloween-themed skins for Reaper and McCree. The former already received an awesome one in 2016. A short poem accompanies the teaser.

Players are also hoping to see the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge.

“The nights grow cold / And monsters appear / A great evil gathers / And Halloween draws near,” the poem reads.

Details about the event have not been announced yet. However, the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge seems likely because Junkrat's Junkenstein skin already features in the event logo. If this happens, players will be able to go into the Horde mode. The co-op mode has a team of four fighting against waves of enemies.

Three weeks of pure Halloween fun

Players are thus gearing up for some spooky new content, and can't wait for the “Overwatch” Halloween event to go live. Blizzard told Digital Trends that the players will have more than three weeks to enjoy the festivities, and also get spooked. The return of the Halloween Terror event first surfaced as a rumor on Reddit.

It is still unclear whether Blizzard will choose Adlersbrunn as the venue. Reaper won’t have the pumpkin head he had during Halloween 2016. McCree’s skin looks like it’s ripped from Van Helsing. Last year, Blizzard replaced the loot boxes by jack-o’-lanterns filled with candy throughout the event.

Blizzard to reinstate wrongfully banned players

Victory poses, sprays and Halloween-themed emotes were also provided during the inaugural event. It is expected that this year’s event will feature more content than 2016’s. Blizzard has conducted six seasonal events since the game was launched in May 2016. If the Summer Games are to go by, there will be more content.

Players also want to see the map decorated with Halloween fixtures, apart from old and new skins. There is hope that all “Overwatch” fans will be able to take part in the event. Recently, the studio cracked down upon players who violated the game’s terms of service. Unfortunately, the toxicity problems led to genuine players also getting banned.

Blizzard has already identified the bug and is working on reinstating unjustly banned players. Get ready for some pure Halloween fun with “Overwatch” Halloween Terror.
