Overwatch Halloween Terror event returns with new skins

Recent articles

Overwatch Terror is back on the menu in 2021, with Blizzard confirming its plans to bring back all temporary modes and skins.

PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers will only have a few more days to wait before they can get back into action, with the Overwatch Halloween Terror release date set for Tuesday, October 12.

As usual, Blizzard is bringing back the limited-time modes of Junkenstein’s Revenge and Junkenstein’s Endless.

This means you have to defend Adlersbrunn against the cunning Dr. Junkenstein and his terrible creations, and it’s possible a few new characters could be added to the mix.

At least five new Halloween skins are expected to be added to loot boxes in 2021, with a short trailer confirming that Roadhog will dress up as a gruesome clown.

The Halloween Terror is expected to kick off around 7pm BST on PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms.

More skin reveals are expected in the coming days, but Blizzard only has a very limited window to reveal everything they’ve got planned.

Some of the new Overwatch skins are expected to be available through loot boxes, while others will be tied to exclusive weekly challenges.

These will only be available for a limited time and will be replaced with others as the October event continues.

The 2020 event description explains: “Celebrate this terrifying season with Halloween Terror Loot Boxes, filled with new skins, highlight intros, player icons, sprays, and more. Items from previous years’ Halloween Terror events are also available. Get 10 extra Halloween Loot Boxes when you buy 50. Don’t wait too long though, like most things that go down at night, these Loot Boxes will disappear before you know it.”

Overwatch events have rolled back the level of new content following the announcement of Overwatch 2.

This has resulted in most seasonal events only featuring new skins and cosmetics, rather than maps and modes.

Since Overwatch 2 is expected to release in the spring of 2022, there’s a chance Halloween Terror could undergo a serious revamp next year.



Team up with three other players to face a myriad of terrifying abominations, including Junkenstein and his mindless Zomnic horde, the terrible Monster, the mysterious Summoner, the bloodthirsty Reaper, and the cunning Witch of the Wilds.


Stand firm with your compatriots as an endless series of monstrosities besiege Adlersbrunn. How long can you last before you succumb to Junkenstein’s horrors?
