  1. Hey Insiders,

    The first teasers for the new Halloween event on Overwatch just dropped! It looks like McCree and Reaper are clashing on the now classic Junkenstein's Revenge Map. What's more, they are wearing new skins...

    Halloween Terror is going live on October 10th, so ready up to score those seasonal lootboxes! Are you excited for the event? Do you have enough coins to buys legendary skins already? Let's chat about it in this thread :)

    Wow! How can you tell that that's the Junkenstein's Revenge Map?

  3. I've spent a lot of time (too much?) on this map. You can recognize the stone work and towers of Eichenwalde as well as the lighting rod on top of the roof.

    The light of the torches is also very distinctive as you can see on this image from last year's event. I'd love to play a new PvE mod on that map! Or maybe Eichenwalde will be skinned for the duration of the event - like Hanamura and King's Row on Christmas :)

    I loved the event last year. While the original MMO idea was scrapped, this event really shows how great a PvE potential the game would have had.

    As for skins I only miss the Reaper and the Zen one from last year, but it seems that there will at least be 2 new ones. What do you think will the other "canonical" heroes get new skins as well? For example the Hanzo one wasn't that great.

    Also will the evil Mercy's abilities follow the recent changes or will she operate with the pre-update skillset? I guess most probaby they will keep the old abilities, so that they do not need to script the whole ecounter again.

    Only 6 days now.

    I'm curious if D.Va gets a new skin. I really hope so!

    I for one welcome these events, its a 2nd chance for me to go back for skins I've missed

    side note, has anyone completed this, at 100% and taken ZERO damage? if so, is there any rewards/bonus for doing so?

    I bought the overwatch on 31 december in 2016 so i didnt catch all of this awesome events and skins but right now i prepared my loots for coins and i'm getting ready to farm more boxes in the Halloween Event. Also the cortex should make a double amount of zSilvers in the coming weekend.

    The new D.Va skin for Heroes of the Storm looks really good. I personally would like to see it introduced into Overwatch too. But it might be more popular than the event skins I'm afraid we won't get it (yet).

    Edit: Realised that I'm wrong about the theme :oops:

  9. Hey Puppetier,

    That new HOTS D.Va skin would be perfect for the Halloween event, good eye :) For those who didn't see it yet, here is D.Va the Destroyer:

    Perfect for Halloween isn't it?

    Hope they add a Halloween inspired McCree skin. Havent seen him get any love from most of the seasonal overwatch events apart from the Omnic Crisis one, and that skin wasnt anything to write home about.

    I also missed out on the Pumpkin skin for Reaper, kept getting duplicates of the Junkrat skin last time around. Hopefully I am not as unlucky as I during the previous event.

    YES! That's exactly what we need! I feel though that there are cooler skins for D.Va in HotS than in Overwatch. I would love to get that red Asuka-skin for D.Va in Overwatch for example... This one I mean: Screen_Shot_2017_05_10_at_11.47.11_AM.0.jpg

    I wish Overwatch could be played on 3rd person mode so I can see D.Va better;)

    Check out Symmetra, who is apparently getting a Deathwing skin. Maybe D.Va could get the same treatment.
