Overwatch Launches PvE Mode and Halloween Skins

Overwatch website announces that a limited-time Halloween Terror event is underway in Overwatch. For the next three weeks the multiplayer shooter will be handing out special loot boxes to hand out over 100 Halloween skins and other themed items. The new version also has balance updates, and the game's first PvE mode, kicking things off with a Halloween-themed brawl. Here's a trailer showing off what's new, and here's a bit on the news:

TRICK OR TREAT
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 our previous events, any Loot Box you earn or purchase from now until the event concludes will contain at least one item from our 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.

Once you've unlocked a Halloween item, it will be yours forever, which means that you can look terror-ific all year round. The collection will be crawling back into the vault on November 1, however, when the event concludes, so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and dig in before it's too late!

DOUBLE-DOUBLE TOIL AND TROUBLE
During this year's Halloween Terror event, you'll also be able to participate in Overwatch's 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 host of shambling zomnics.

As told in our "Junkenstein" digital comic, this terrifying tale follows Dr. Jamison Junkenstein, an inventor and scientist who was once employed by the Lord of Adlersbrunn. Junkenstein's dream was to create artificial life, but the Lord of Adlersbrunn mocked the scientist and his creations, calling him a fool and dismissing him from service. Slighted, Junkenstein vowed to prove the lord wrong, and when an unexpected visitor showed up and offered the key to perfecting his creation, Junkenstein’s Monster was born.

Now Junkenstein plans his revenge against the Lord of Adlersbrunn, and only four heroes stand in the way.

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 not only the advances of his macabre entourage, but also wave after wave of zomnic attacks.
