Blizzard invites players to celebrate Halloween Terror 2022 in the company’s first-person hero shooter Overwatch 2. This content is available via the game’s latest update.

Although Halloween Terror has always been an annual tradition in Overwatch, this time, players can enjoy a newly revamped PvE experience, with Junkenstein’s bride as the main antagonist.

Players can complete the event challenges to earn special rewards, including the Jack-o’-Lantern Weapon Charm, Adlersbrunn Name Card, and some Battle Pass XP, among others. The event is now underway and will run until November 8.

The latest patch for Overwatch 2 also brought a lot of bug fixes in the game. One thing of note here is that Bastion is now back in the lineup after the issue with his Configuration: Artillery ultimate has been resolved.
