Overwatch Passes 20 Million Players, launches Halloween-Themed event

Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with special glowing jack-o’-lanterns, and they’re filled to the brim with over 100 new cosmetic treats! As with the previous events, any Loot Box you earn or purchase from now until the event concludes will contain at least one item from the Halloween 2016 collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more!

While the contents of each Halloween Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these creepy customization options with credits in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration.

 BEWARE DR. JUNKENSTEIN’S MONSTER

During the Overwatch Halloween Terror, you’ll also be able to participate in our first-ever co-op PvE brawl:  Junkenstein’s Revenge. Team up with three other players and face off against a host of eerie enemies, including Dr. Junkenstein himself, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Reaper, a mysterious witch, and a host of shambling zomnics.

As told in the “Junkenstein” comic, this terrifying tale follows Dr. Jamison Junkenstein, an inventor and scientist who was once employed by the Lord of Adlersbrunn.

Players will choose from the Alchemist (Ana), the Archer (Hanzo), the Gunslinger (McCree), or the Soldier (Soldier: 76) and defend Adlersbrunn castle’s doors against Dr. Junkenstein’s onslaught. Heroes will need to work together and develop strategies to withstand wave after wave of zomnic attacks. Will you be able to keep your cool when Junkenstein’s Monster appears?

Overwatch Halloween Terror is live RIGHT NOW on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, so grab your largest candy bag, put on some spine-chilling music, and get ready to test your mettle against Junkenstein’s metal minions.
