Blizzard Entertainment deployed Overwatch Patch Notes 188.8.131.52 introducing the new Seasonal Event: Overwatch Halloween Terror Brawl, several bug fixes and hero adjustments.
When the shadows grow long and the nights grow cold… when witches cackle in the night, and ghosts roam the streets… it can mean only one thing: Halloween has arrived in Overwatch! Starting today, Overwatch’s regular Loot Boxes have been replaced with limited-edition Halloween Loot Boxes. Each contains at least one of more than 100 Halloween-themed sprays, icons, skins, victory poses, emotes, and highlight intros. And the bravest heroes will test their mettle against a mad scientist’s metal minions in Overwatch’s first co-op PvE brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge.
Welcome to Overwatch Halloween Terror!

The Overwatch Halloween Terror is Live. The Eichenwald Evacuation flyer with the 11.10 (11th of October) date was indeed a clue/hint left by Blizzard to introduce the Overwatch Halloween Terror Seasonal Event. It is now in Live realms. Visit our Eichenwald Easter Eggs page to view the Evacuation Flyer, and a link to the Reddit that linked to our page with over 4333 upvotes and 755 comments. People were actually awake for hours hoping the Evacuation date and the release of the Overwatch Halloween Terror Seasonal Event was a hint planted by Blizzard.
Overwatch Halloween Terror
And witches’ cauldrons bubble with potions untold. . .
When spirits and ghouls and abominations appear. . .
It can mean only one thing: Halloween is here!
The fright for the future has begun, heroes, and for the next three weeks, we’re celebrating the spookiest time of the year in true Overwatch fashion–with a brand new seasonal event! Explore the haunted streets of Hollywood, expand your collection of themed holiday items, and relive a chilling tale in our first-ever PvE brawl: Junkenstein’s Revenge!
Welcome to the Overwatch Halloween Terror.
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 the “Dr. Junkenstein’s Monster” 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.
SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. . .
We’re also getting a little spoopy on our social media pages, so don’t forget to check out our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profiles for a steady stream of Halloween goodies—and be sure to keep an eye on www.playoverwatch.com for updates on future seasonal events!
In the meantime, Overwatch Halloween Terror is live RIGHT NOW on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, so grab your largest candy bag, put on some spine-chilling music, and get ready to test your mettle against Junkenstein’s metal minions.
The Monster awaits.
