The first Overwatch Halloween 2017 skins have been revealed. Facebook advertisements have revealed three of the upcoming character skins for the Halloween Terror 2017 event.

Here’s more on the upcoming Halloween Terror 2017 event, which starts October 10:
Blizzard does love keeping details of their live events close to their chest. While everyone has been speculating about what the next Overwatch event will be, evidence pointed to another Halloween event, especially after they did a repeat of the Summer Games event from last year too. Today on Twitter, Blizzard teased the upcoming Halloween event with a short video, giving us a look at the name, date, and a couple of new costumes for McCree and Reaper. You can see the video and tweet below.

And monsters appear
A great evil gathers

The Overwatch Halloween Terror event has very few details so far–only that it releases on October 10–but if it follows the formula of last year’s festivities, we’ll be seeing a horde mode for some of the heroes, as well as new character skins, sprays, intros, and emotes. It’s expected that Blizzard will also do something similar to this year’s Summer Games by offering last year’s Halloween event items in addition to the new loot that will be available.
Overwatch is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
