The event also introduced, Junkenstein's Revenge, Overwatch's first-ever co-op PVE brawl. "We're also re-opening our crypt so players can unlock their favorite Halloween-themed items from a year ago along with over 50 new tantalizing treats, including legendary skins like Corsair Ana, Van Helsing McCree, Dragon Symmetra, Cultist Zenyatta, and more", the company noted in its blog post. Players will take on waves of enemies and bosses trying to assault the castle doors.

Personally my favorite skin leak so far, it seems Blizzard chose to give a very elegant Deathwing skin to Symmetra. In teams of four, players choose to play as either McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo, and Ana to defend Adlersbrunn from Junkenstein. Junkenstein's Revenge seems to have an all-character select mode (or just a different set of heroes) now since we see Genji, Torbjorn and Widowmaker fighting instead of the previous rotation and if the trailer is to be believed it will feature an endless horde battle.

These skins will be included in Halloween Terror Loot Boxed, along with avatars, sprays, voice lines, and more.

Hell, Zarya even got an awesome skin that looks pulled right out of the 1980s. Last year's event replaced all in-game loot boxes with Halloween-inspired jack-o'-lanterns.

We've been waiting for a good seasonal event to come back around in the world of Overwatch - and today, it's time for fans to get into the ghoulish action!

Last year, we got three new Halloween emotes include Winston making some shadow puppets with his gorilla feet, Reinhardt smashing a pumpkin with his huge Rocket Hammer, and Ana daintily dropping candy around her feet for all the kids to enjoy.

As an added bonus, the old skins introduced past year were also available at a slightly cheaper price.
