Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror trailer teases new co-op mode and cosmetics

It’s the first Halloween of Overwatch 2 and fans can expect more of the same from Blizzard. The Halloween Terror event is set to return tomorrow, October 25, and with it will come a new co-op mission, special challenges, ghostly rewards, and uniquely themed seasonal cosmetics.

When Halloween Terror arrives, fans will be introduced to the next chapter in the saga of Dr. Junkenstein. Titled “Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride,” the new event takes us back to the town of Adlersbrunn as ” the Bride of Junkenstein seeks vengeance upon those responsible for the death of her creator.”

The new co-op mission will have special challenges associated with it. Completing them will unlock special rewards like the Nightfall Over Adlersbrunn Name Card, the Jack-o’-Lantern Weapon Charm, Battle Pass XP, and more. The original Junkenstein’s Revenge co-op Brawl will also be returning for Halloween Terror 2022.

It’s unclear exactly what will be different in this new co-op mode. In the original Junkenstein’s Revenge, players selected one of four special variant heroes and faced waves of enemies. We don’t know if Wrath of the Bride will also be a horde mode but it will have four new playable characters to choose from.

Of course, another highlight of Halloween Terror is the unique cosmetics. The trailer reveals special Halloween skins, including Witch Kiriko and Executioner Junker Queen. It looks like you’ll also be able to earn rewards from previous Halloween Terror events such as Bastion’s gravestone-themed RIP skin and D.Va’s fox spirit skin.

While many of these cosmetics will likely be locked behind the in-game store and only available for purchase, Blizzard is giving players a chance to at least earn the Werewolf Winston Legendary skin for free. Tune in to Twitch from October 25 through November 1st to any Twitch channel streaming under the Overwatch 2 category and you can earn the Werewolf Winston Spray (2 hours watched) and Werewolf Winston Legendary skin (4 hours watched).

Overwatch 2’s Halloween Terror event will run from October 25 through November 9.
