The last Halloween has definitely given a birth to new mystical stories and crazy videos from parties. However, this day has brought new costumes to the world of games as well. For example, Overwatch has released an update. Now players can enjoy new Halloween-themed character skins. In addition to new skins there’re interesting weapons, seasonal Loot Boxes, and Junkenstein’s Revenge mode created for PvE mode.
Overwatch Halloween Characters
Among new skins you can see Anna Ghoul. She has a spooky mask with malice smile on her face. She uses Biotic Rifle as her primary weapon which is all covered with spider web.
Another character added is Bastion Tombstone. This is a huge mechanical machine which has human appearance. He bears heavy artillery ready to destroy any enemy. He can even turn into a tank.
Hanzo is a demon now. He wears Arabian costume and shows his grey chest. He kills his enemies with a Storm Bow which includes dangerous arrows.
It is interesting that Reinhardt has become Coldheart. His body is well protected with a lot of iron while his Rocket Hammer is ready to smash and crash.
Junkrat has turned into Dr. Junkenstein who knows how to handle his Frag Launcher. Among other characters you can see Mercy as Witch, Pharah as Possessed, and Reaper as Pumpkin.
Overwatch Halloween Mode
As you already know Overwatch offered a new PvE mode on Halloween holidays. Junkenstein’s Revenge gives you an opportunity to team up with three other players. Together you can fight against “host of shambling zomnics”. They are robots in fact but of a spooky appearance which is much closer to zombies. They will attack wave after wave so you need to work out a good strategy. This is the only way to survive in this battle. If your plan is to make a slaughter you’re likely to be disappointed. Blizzard says it is better to plan in advance how you will use all your skills. The final boss of this mode is no other than Junkenstein’s Monster who is going to be rather challenging.
Overwatch Halloween Features
In addition to all these updates Blizzard offers players 100 new themed items. You can unlock them in special Loot Boxes. Their functions are the same as Summer Games event offered. Loot Boxes themselves are replaced with glowing lanterns. What is more, Blizzard has even released a comic book called Junkenstein. There you learn more about Dr. Jamison Junkenstein. He is an evil scientist. He used to co-operate with the Lord of Adlersbrunn.
