Overwatch's Halloween Event Returns This October With Even More Spooky Loot

Overwatch celebrates Halloween once again this year.

It's October which is officially Halloween month. That means like the Summer Games, Blizzard is bringing back the Overwatch Halloween Terror starting next week, October 10.

The brief Twitter teaser showed off what looked like a new skull outfit for Reaper(?) and a Van Helsing inspired get-up for McCree (love it). Blizzard is promising more new content for this year's Halloween event, which could see the return of the Junkenstein's Revenge mode and a bevy of new loot and costumes.

During the Overwatch's first year, Blizzard hosted the first Halloween event which included the horde defense style Junkentein's revenge mode, along with a suite of new loot. Safe to say that some of the outfits that came out of the event like Junkenstein's monster Roadhog and Witch Mercy were some of the best Overwatch put out up to that point.

The event will go on from October 10 through November 2
