THE Overwatch Halloween 2021 release date has been scheduled, and it’s now less than 24-hours until the countdown ends and the new event begins.
Blizzard has confirmed that its next big Overwatch event will be starting in less than 24-hours time.
Overwatch Halloween Terror 2021 will include new skins to unlocks, cosmetics to earn through challenges and returning limited-time game modes.
At least five new skins are expected to be released as part of the new event, with plenty of weekly challenges to take on before things shut down in November.
The latest teasers from Blizzard confirm that Roadhogg will be dressing up in a terrifying clown costume, alongside new outfits for Vampire Bat Echo and Draugr Reinhardt.
A few other skins are expected to be revealed before everything begins and shared via the official Overwatch Twitter account.
Blizzard has confirmed that the Overwatch Halloween Terror release date has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 12.
The Halloween Terror is expected to kick off at around 7pm BST across PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms.
Delays are possible, but with no major expansions or new content expected to be included, it seems likely that everything will run smoothly.
It’s unclear at this time whether Blizzard is planning on launching any major balance changes for the current character roster.
There could be updates to both the base game and the experimental servers, however, there hasn’t been a lot of action on the PTR of late.
So it’s hard to say just how big a download the new Overwatch event patch will be when it arrives on October 12.
The description from the 2020 event provides a teaser of what to expect, adding: “Celebrate this frightful season with Halloween Terror Loot Boxes, filled with new skins, highlight intros, player icons, sprays, and more. Items from previous years’ Halloween Terror events are also available.
“Receive 10 bonus Halloween loot boxes when you purchase 50. Don’t wait too long, though—like most things that go bump in the night, these Loot Boxes will disappear before you know it.”
And as usual, Blizzard is bringing back the limited-time modes of Junkenstein’s Revenge and Junkenstein’s Endless.
This means defending Adlersbrunn from the devious Dr Junkenstein and his dreadful creations, and it’s possible that a few fresh characters could be added to the mix.
