Blizzard recently announced a treat for "Overwatch [VIDEO]" players, as the studio is bringing back the yearly Halloween Terror Event, which launches next week. The studio took to Twitter to share a teaser that hints at more holiday-themed skins arriving this October 10. According to Gamespot, the Halloween Terror Event launching next week for players on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, will run until November 2 and will feature Halloween-themed skins for McCree and Reaper, among others. The teaser published on Twitter doesn't share much, but it does announce the return of Dr. Junkenstein to the event. Polygon reported that last year, the event launched an exclusive PvE mode called Frankenstein's Revenge, a version of which may be brought back to the studio next week.

New skins arriving in upcoming event

The upcoming Halloween Terror Event for "Overwatch" will also add new skins in the game, but what exactly these skins are remains to be seen. In other "Overwatch" news, director Jeff Kaplan recently opened up about managing and maintaining the widely popular game. Gamespot reported that Kaplan took to the Battle.net forums to talk about managing his team and their "shared, collective vision." He admitted that the team believes they are "artists and craftspeople" and not just developers and programmers on a game. He added that there are no "corporate overlords" who are controlling their creative choices.

Jeff Kaplan on transparency

One of the best things about Blizzard's "Overwatch" team is their transparency. Director Jeff Kaplan admitted that in talking to the gaming community, they do not use any aliases or code names and instead publish their real names.

It also comes with a sense of responsibility of being careful about what they say or publish online. In fact, Kaplan said that engaging with players online is "downright scary and intimidating" for most of them because people can be very mean on the Internet.

He shared, "It's not exactly what I would call a safe environment for creative people to openly express their thoughts and feelings." As for how players will react to the upcoming Halloween Terror Event, that remains to be seen. There's not much to gather from the teaser, but players can get a glimpse of what seems to be a Van Helsing McCree and a Reaper without a pumpkin head. "Overwatch [VIDEO]" is now playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the teaser for the Halloween Terror Event below.
