Overwatch is a first person shooter (FPS) game that Blizzard has released on May 24, 2016 for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Since the game was developed by a popular company such as Blizzard, the game has been bought by many gamers out there (most of them being World of Warcraft or Diablo 3 fans).
We never thought that this game will become so popular, as the ranked system was quite strange at the beginning, allowing gamers to choose the same hero in the same team, which could create some over-powered comp teams. However, soon enough, Blizzard has realized that some restrictions need to be added in ranked games and now only 1 member from a team can have a specific hero. For example, if you’ve already chosen Mercy (the support hero) nobody else from your team will be able to pick her.
Anyway, as you already know, Halloween is approaching fast and because of this, many gaming developers are adding some new stuff to their games in order to bring the spirit of this event. Blizzard is a company that’s well known for bringing the holidays spirit in its games, as in World of Warcraft there are some special events for Halloween and Christmas, when the world is revamped to celebrate the current event.
We remind you that Overwatch has also held a “Summer Games” celebration during the 2016 Olympics where it also offered new skins, sprays and other cosmetics items that could be unlocked.
Overwatch has received the “Halloween Terror update” which comes with some creepy skins, map decorations, sprays and highlight intros. This event also comes with a limited-time-only game mode that’s named Junkenstein’s Revenge, where a team of players will need to fight against hoards of robots.
All of these are now live on all three platforms that Overwatch is available on. Keep in mind that they will run until November 1, 2016, when the event will end.
