New epic and legendary skins for Overwatch have been revealed ahead of this year’s Halloween Terror event.

The official Overwatch Twitter account has revealed some of the epic and legendary skins to be made available, including Enchanted Armor Pharah, Jack-O-Lantern Wrecking Ball, Undead McCree, Banshee Moira, Spider Widowmaker, and Swamp Monster Doomfist.

Along with these skins, Jeff Kaplan has also alluded to new spooky areas and a potential Bride for Junkenstein’s Monster. While six skins have been revealed so far, the absence of the Bride of Junkenstein’s Monster has left fans debating which character is going to fill the role.

To get the new skins, Halloween loot boxes will be available for purchase and can also be won by leveling up and playing arcade mode games for up to three additional boxes.

Features from the past Halloween events that will be returning are the spooky areas in select maps and the ability to purchase Halloween-themed skins, sprays, voice lines, emotes, victory poses, and highlight intros. Halloween loot boxes are guaranteed to contain at least one item related to the event, and the return of the Junkenstein’s Revenge game mode will see four heroes fight against an onslaught of zombies and other foes.

Kaplan mentioned some small changes to Junkenstein’s Revenge, but said that it would remain similar to last year’s iteration of the event.

The Overwatch Halloween Terror event starts October 9 on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
