Players can get a preview of what to expect from the upcoming Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror event in the new trailer, which also features some new spooky skins. However, for some fans, the way Blizzard is making the new content accessible confirms worries about how Overwatch 2 will handle such releases in the future.

With the release of the first game in 2016, the annual Overwatch Halloween Terror event launched and brought a variety of seasonal skins and other spooky cosmetics. Junkenstein’s Revenge, a brand-new game mode, was also offered to fans. In a previous announcement, Blizzard said that the event would return this year from October 25 to November 8 and would bring players a fresh take on the current Junkenstein Halloween mode, called Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride, with a suitably attired Sombra in the lead role.


A new trailer from Blizzard has been released, giving players a preview of more of this year’s content. Several characters in the video are dressed in previous Overwatch Halloween skins, including Anna as the Mummy and Sigma as the Flying Dutchman. It primarily allows fans to see two new skins, Witch Kiriko and Executioner Junker Queen. Instead of her usual Healing Ofuda, Kiriko is carrying what appear to be pagan spell-casting cards, and Junker Queen is dressed in all-black spikes and an executioner’s hood. Even though Mercy already has a witch skin in Overwatch 2, Kiriko’s is a more beautiful version, making the two fairly distinct. Mercy’s skin is darker and edgier.

Fans can also purchase a Witch Kiriko bundle and a few spooky sprays in addition to the new skins. Blizzard provided more information on the reveals in a post-it published today on the game’s official website. The article discusses the rewards players can receive for completing the challenge, including a themed name card, a weapon charm, and battle pass XP, and mentions how the new co-op PVE challenge will be extending the lore of the original Junkenstein mode. Additionally, it made it clear that players could purchase the Witch Kiriko bundle from the shop.

Though some were excited by the announcement and the flashy new skins, comments reiterated some of the issues that led to many fans’ disappointment with Overwatch 2. Players complained about the in-built monetization of the free-to-play model of the game, which will probably require them to spend real money on the skins. Regarding the decision to release yet another Junkenstein event rather than something brand-new, fans were also upset about the lack of additional new skins and the potential recycling of old PVE content.

Whatever the future holds, it seems Blizzard has a long way to go before gaining the trust of its audience. This is Overwatch 2’s first seasonal event, and the quality of the content therein may very well indicate to players whether or not the game is worthwhile of their time.

On PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, Overwatch 2 is currently available.
