Overwatch 2 Wrath of the Bride event game mode & map

Blizzard have explained Overwatch 2’s Halloween LTM, Junkenstein’s Revenge, and it will be a new mode, only for the duration of the event, that will feature co-op action!

Not only this, but the OG Junkenstein’s Revenge co-op Brawl is back – with an appearance from Dr. Junkenstein himself.

PVE arrives in Overwatch 2 in 2023, and Junkenstein’s Revenge is set to be a taste of what’s to come. The original mode had four heroes taking on waves of Omnic zombies, but we’ll need to wait and see what Blizzard have cooked up for Overwatch 2.

The Battle Pass trailer also teased that Sombra will be the titular bride of the event, so she may be one of the bosses players will battle.

As for the map, it appears Overwatch players might be fighting in Aldersbrunn again with its spooky medieval castle setting, but it could be overhauled from when it last appeared in Overwatch.
