Overwatch introduces the Halloween Terror event with PvE brawling and new item packs

Well, it's what I wanted.

It’s time to get into the spirit of ghoulish glee in Overwatch with the new Halloween Terror event, and it’s bringing more than just new skins and items. It’s bringing that too, of course, so anyone who desperately needs a seasonal skin for various characters or another set of sprays will want to be earning as many loot boxes as possible (and you can buy the items for credits, to boot), but the real centerpiece is the new PvE mode, Junkenstein’s Revenge.

Players will form a team of four to face off against Dr. Junkenstein’s deadly creations, choosing between Soldier 76, Ana, McCree, and Hanzo to form a team and take down zomnics, the Reaper, a witch, Junkenstein’s Monster, and… well, you get the idea. It’s a PvE brawl for fun, and it should give players a new way to enjoy the game aside from just shooting other players. If you’d like to see more of the event before jumping in, there are screenshots and a trailer just below. The game is also celebrating hitting a milestone of 20 million players, which means you should have no trouble finding people to jump in and fight zombie robots alongside.
