With Halloween just around the corner, Overwatch players will be excited to know that this year’s annual Halloween Terror event is back and spookier than ever. The event is now live on all platforms and comes with an array of exciting new loot for players to unlock.

The new skins released with this year’s event include three Epic skins for McCree, Mei, and Widowmaker, as well as six Legendary skins for Doomfist, Pharah, Moira, Soldier: 76, Wrecking Ball, and Sombra. Players can view all of the new skins, sprays, and more under the “What’s New?” tab in the game’s Hero Gallery.

The Halloween co-op game mode Junkenstein’s Revenge returns once more for the third year in a row. The player-versus-environment game brings together four players to protect a castle against waves of zombie robots that get increasingly more difficult as the game progresses. Enemy bosses, including Mercy, Reaper, Symmetra, Roadhog, and Junkrat, will occasionally spawn throughout the game to offer a greater challenge for players compared to the robots.

This year’s iteration of the event-exclusive game mode retains these key aspects of the game while introducing both Tracer and Brigitte to the pool of playable characters. For those players looking for a challenge, the game comes in four different difficulty levels with "Legendary" as the most challenging. 

The event wraps up Oct. 31, so players best be sure to get all their goodies before the holiday ends.
