This player versus environment game mode has only one objective: defend the door at all costs!

Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 will run from October 9 until October 31. Got no trick-or-treating plans? Spend your Halloween night with your favorite Overwatch heroes!

Feast your eyes on these new spook-tacular legendary skins!

The Overwatch Halloween terror 2018 will not be complete without new skins to complete the scary feel. This year, Blizzard is giving us nine Halloween costumes for our favorite heroes.

There’s Banshee Moira, Bride Sombra, Enchanted Armor Pharah, Jack-o’-lantern Wrecking Ball, Pumpkin Mei, Slasher: 76, Spider Widowmaker, Swamp Monster Doomfist, and Undead McCree.

You might recognize the references to some of these skins —  take Enchanted Armor Pharah for example. We’re pretty sure the overall look and feel of the skin pays tribute to The Headless Horseman from Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

There’s also Bride Sombra, which could pass up as the game version of Mary Shelley in the film ‘The Bride of Frankenstein.’

Slasher: 76 would use his Tactical Visor on you if you can’t identify the inspiration for his look!

Aside from the skins, we’ll also be getting two new highlight intros featuring Winston showing off an amazing high-tech pumpkin, and Brigitte who appears to be aggressively swinging her melee weapon to the screen.

A new emote for Bastion (called Zombie) is also available for the Overwatch Halloween terror 2018.
