Finally, this year's Halloween event has been confirmed! Blizzard

Blizzard has finally confirmed the launch date of this year’s Overwatch Halloween Terror. And yes, it will be today, October 15.

The start date for the aforementioned event was revealed by the studio on Twitter. The announcement also came with a much-awaited teaser trailer and this time around it features Zenyatta, who can be seen (for the first time!) putting both of his feet firmly on the ground.

It is worth noting, however, that Blizzard has yet to confirm a feature that is expected to arrive. Basically, the annual Halloween event comes with a handful of features for players to enjoy. It is very likely that the studio will spill the beans later in the day. Right now, the official event page of Overwatch is still pointing to last year’s Halloween Terror 2018.

As with every Halloween Terror in Overwatch, it is expected from Blizzard to introduce new animations and emotes on top of in-game modes. There might also be a new set of sprays, and especially skins, but only for a select number of heroes.

It is also highly likely that Blizzard will bring back the popular PvE game mode called Junkenstein’s Revenge. In case you did not know, both Brigitte and Tracer were added to the game mode last year. There is a chance that a new set of heroes will be joining the monster extravaganza this year.

Moreover, Overwatch will officially hit the Nintendo Switch later today on October 15. However, the game will arrive with no physical copy.

In related news, Hong Kong protesters have started to turn the Overwatch hero Mei into a symbol of freedom in the wake of the video game company’s decision to ban and censor Hearthstone pro Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai for speaking out in favour of the said protestors.

Many people started deleting their Blizzard accounts out of anger over the company’s actions. Some even went to suggest that they will boycott the upcoming BlizzCon 2019, which will take place this November.
