It’s the Friday before October. The air is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors and halloween decorations are displayed everywhere as we get closer to October 31st. On top of that, Overwatch had also joined in on the fun. This is my Overwatch Halloween Edition.
I finally got some good Overwatch time in. I was overjoyed to see that the main page had been changed into something more festive for this season. It was completed with a werewolf howl in the background and a narrating voice that is on the spookiness level of Tales from the Crypt. Not only are there now items that can be worn to celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, but even a fun mini game.
In this Overwatch Halloween special brawl match, you choose one of four characters, Ana, McCree, Soldier 76 or Hanzo. You four then face off against Dr. Junkenstein (Junkrat) and his creations and allies. I have to say, I really love the halloween skin for Roadhog, which is called Junkenstein’s Monster. Each baddie in this brawl comes with their own special halloween skin.
Reaper is the headless horseman from Sleepy Hallow while Mercy has a skin that is a witch. Mercy’s is really cute. Junkrat is his own variation of Dr. Frankenstein (Dr. Junkenstein) while Roadhog is his creation, Junkenstein’s Monster. It’s really a fun time, and you get metals for the harder levels that you beat. Now, I don’t play that often so I had to stick with the easy level.
If you’re a fan of Halloween but don’t feel like or want to do anything for Halloween, this little mini game is a perfect way to spend the spookiest time of year. Don’t forget to farm those lootboxes, the halloween prizes/ skins are going to be going away November 1st!
