Overwatch 'Halloween Terror' event returns next week
Teaser shows new Reaper and McCree skins.
Overwatch is celebrating Halloween yet again this year, and this time a little earlier than we anticipated.
The 'Halloween Terror' event kicks off next Tuesday, on October 10th. This gives players almost an extra week to farm up Halloween-themed loot in Blizzard's hero shooter, as the event kicked off 6 days later last year, on October 16th.
Blizzard announced the event's return over on Twitter, sharing a short poem and brief look at new skins for characters McCree and Reaper.

We're yet to receive a full outline of what will be available during the event, but if it's anything like previous Overwatch holidays then players can expect to find hundreds of new cosmetic items ranging from skins to sprays in their loot boxes.
There's also no word on whether the Junkenstein's Revenge gamemode will make a return this year, but we expect all to be revealed shortly.
Will you be celebrating Halloween with Overwatch this year? Let us know!
