Blizzard have announced that Overwatch is getting in to the – aha – spirit of the season by launching a month long Halloween event. Loot Boxes have been replaced with jack-o’-lanterns and they now spawn over 100 new cosmetic treats. There will also be Overwatch’s first-ever co-op PvE brawl, Junkenstein’s Revenge, which pits four players against “Dr. Junkenstein himself, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Reaper, a mysterious witch, and host of shambling zomnics.”
As told in our “Junkenstein” digital comic, this terrifying tale follows Dr. Jamison Junkenstein, an inventor and scientist who was once employed by the Lord of Adlersbrunn. Junkenstein’s dream was to create artificial life, but the Lord of Adlersbrunn mocked the scientist and his creations, calling him a fool and dismissing him from service. Slighted, Junkenstein vowed to prove the lord wrong, and when an unexpected visitor showed up and offered the key to perfecting his creation, Junkenstein’s Monster was born.
