Halloween is coming and that means its game time bitches! With a new Halloween themed month of treats on offer from Blizzard running from October 10th right through till the second of November this is going to be such delightfully deviant fun. So far Blizzard have not told us much giving us a brief teaser video (below) that shows off new Halloween-themed skins for McCree and Reaper, who already got an epic one last year.

Anyone else looking forward to the next overwatch event and what skins do you want to see? #overwatch #halloween #halloweencostume #overwatchhalloween #skins #overwatchskins #overwatchskin #reaper #soldier76 #dva #hanasong #Lucio #tracer #roadhog #hanzo #genji #blizzard #wow #worldofwarcraft #game #gamer #nerd #geek #widowmaker #fps
The video was accompanied by a poem which states:
“The nights grow cold, And monsters appear, A great evil gathers, And Halloween draws near…” (I feel like this needs a maniacal laugh at the end of it the realm of Thriller).
Fans are hoping for Junkenstein’s Revenge to make its triumphant return, this seems to be the most likely out come especially since Junkrat’s Junkenstein skin is featured in the logo for this year’s event. Junkenstiens revenge was a four player co-op event that situates the players into using only four of the characters. Players may only use McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo and Ana, who are known as “The Gunslinger”, “The Soldier”, “The Archer” and “The Alchemist” respectively. The players must defend the castle gates in Adlersbrunn from Junkenstein, his creations and his allies. The game will automatically end if all players die. The event is a wave-based horde brawl that gets progressively harder as it progresses.
So Happy Halloween fellow nerds, lets make it a good one!
