Overwatch 2 Halloween event 2023 start date
The Overwatch 2 Halloween event for 2023 will begin on Tuesday, October 10, 2023. This was confirmed in the first teaser shared by Blizzard for the Season 7 update, which also arrived on the same day.
It hasn’t been confirmed yet if the event will be titled Halloween Terror as it has been every year since 2016. However, fans can rest assured that they’ll still be getting their annual Halloween hit, even if the name is currently unknown.
Overwatch 2 Halloween event 2023 skins
The main cosmetic teased for the Overwatch 2 Halloween event 2023 is a Diablo 4 crossover skin that sees Moira transform into Lilith. It hasn’t been confirmed exactly how the skin will be unlocked, but fans will be keen to kit the Support Hero like the Queen of Succubi.
The short teaser also showed off what appeared to be a new Wrecking Ball skin inspired by the Diablo series, although the clip didn’t offer a clear look at it. Players can expect a more in-depth look at each skin and how to unlock them closer to the event.
Overwatch Halloween event 2023 game modes
The game mode for the Overwatch 2 Halloween event 2023 hasn’t been confirmed. In the past, we’ve seen PvE modes like Junkerstein’s Revenge and Wrath of the Bride, but the devs haven’t revealed if either will be returning this year.
A new mode could be seen in the Season 7 teaser that featured an overhauled version of Blizzard World overrun by ghostly robots, so it’s likely this will appear in the event. However, we’ll have to wait for details on how it will work and what it’s called.
