Overwatch Reveals Two More New Halloween Terror Skins
Wrecking Ball and McCree both get new Halloween looks during this year's event.
Overwatch's annual Halloween Terror event is almost here, and once again, it is bringing with it a slew of new Halloween-themed skins and other cosmetics to get your hands on. Blizzard has been slowly revealing some of these in the days leading up to the event, showcasing spooky new looks for Moira, Doomfist, and several other characters, and now the developer has revealed two more new Halloween skins coming this year. [Update: The Halloween Terror event is now live. You can check out all of the new Halloween skins here.]
First, the official Overwatch Twitter account unveiled a Halloween skin for the newest addition to the game's roster, Wrecking Ball. As Wrecking Ball wasn't around for previous instances of Halloween Terror, this marks his first Halloween skin, and it turns his mech into a frightening, fire-powered Jack-'o-lantern. You can take a look at it below.

Shortly after Wrecking Ball's new skin was revealed, the PlayStation Twitter accounted shared a video showing off a new Halloween skin for McCree. This one, dubbed Undead McCree, gives the gunslinger a zombie-like appearance, with pale skin and glowing green eyes, while skull prints adorn his bandana and serape. You can see the new skin below.

On top of the two aforementioned skins, Blizzard has previously revealed new Halloween looks for Pharah, Moira, Doomfist, and Widowmaker. In previous Halloween Terror events, these new Legendary skins could be purchased for 3,000 credits. Blizzard also brings back Halloween skins from previous instances of the event at discounted prices.
This year's Halloween Terror event kicks off on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9, and it runs through the end of the month. Once again, it brings back the limited-time PvE mode Junkenstein's Revenge, which pits four players against Dr. Junkenstein and the Witch of the Wilds--alternate reality versions of Junkrat and Mercy.
