About a week ago, Reddit user Mnemosynaut leaked images of the new Halloween skins for Mei, Symmetra, Reaper and Zenyatta. Blizzard has been doing an awesome job in keeping the details about the Halloween Event a secret, and players will have to access their accounts themselves to find out what is in store for them.

As well as the original version of Junkenstein's Revenge, this year's event also features a new endless mode variant - known as Endless Night - plus leaderboards to commemorate the longest runs against Junkenstein's diabolical army. The players' objective is to hold out until the final wave while going up against hordes of Zomnics, Junkenstein's Monster, the Witch of the Wilds, the Reaper, and Dr. Junkenstein himself. In addition to Soldier 76, Mcree, Hanzo and Ana, players can now choose Genji, Torbjorn, Widowmaker and Zenyatta.

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

The Overwatch Halloween Terror event will make a comeback in October 2017, as the event returns from when it first came to Overwatch back in October 2016.

Many people are likely to be drawn to the new skins introduced with Halloween Terror.

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

During the Overwatch Summer Games 2017 event, skins were available to unlock via the credits system.

Another in-game cosmetic that players will want to watch out for is the Van-Helsing like legendary skin for Mcree, which had already been unveiled and teased by Blizzard. These items from a year ago will go for the normal base game rates so a Legendary item will cost 1,000 coins instead of the inflated 3,000 rate they typically run for.
