Update: Following the previously announced skins, including the Doomfist one below, Blizzard has next revealed a new Halloween Terror skin for Widowmaker. It's called Spider Widowmaker, and it doesn't dramatically change her overall look, but it does adorn her head with a cool new spider-y look. You can check it out here. The original story follows.
Blizzard has announced the first new Overwatch Legendary skin that players will be able to earn in 2018's Halloween Terror event. This year, Doomfist is getting a new holiday-themed skin that transforms him into a Swamp Monster.
The new Legendary skin gives Doomfist a scaly blue complexion, as well as gills and horned fins. The skin honestly makes Doomfist look more like the Amphibian Man from The Shape of Water than the swamp monsters seen in other stories like Goosebumps and Scooby-Doo. Doomfist's Legendary Swamp Monster skin won't be available until Halloween Terror starts, and you'll no longer be able to unlock it once Halloween ends.

Halloween Terror is an annual Overwatch event that adds limited-time Legendary skins, cosmetic map changes, and a PvE mode to the game. Each Legendary skin can be found in a holiday-themed loot box or bought for 3000 credits, and the skins from previous years return at a discount. Outside of this period, you're unable to earn Overwatch's Halloween-themed Legendary skins.
The PvE mode is called Jenkenstein's Revenge. It tells the story of an alternate world, where Dr. Junkenstein (Junkrat) and the Witch of the Wilds (Mercy) are trying to take over the fictional kingdom of Adlersbrunn. Both evil entities are opposed by the Alchemist (Ana), the Gunslinger (McCree), the Archer (Hanzo), the Soldier (Solder 76), the Countess (Widowmaker), the Swordsman (Genji), the Monk (Zenyatta), and the Viking (Torbjorn). The only clue as to how this year's Halloween Terror continues the story is a mysterious riddle that Overwatch tweeted out.
Halloween Terror starts on October 9 and continues to October 31. Overwatch is available on Xbox One, PS4, and Switch.
