If you’ve been looking forward to more content in Overwatch then you’re wait is over. Today developer Blizzard teased an upcoming event for the gameand it’s based around a certain spooky holiday.

Just like last year, Halloween will be invading the popular first-person shooter. While the exact number of rewards players will be able to earn is unknown, we did get a first look at new Halloween-themed skins for both McCree and Reaper, as well as what looks to be the return of Junkrat’s skin from last year, thanks to a small teaser released on Blizzard’s Twitter account.

Overwatch Halloween Terror is set to begin in exactly one week, on October 10, 2017, and will of course be available on all platforms. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown when the event will end.

In other Overwatch news, two weeks ago the game received a new patch, which added a new map, balances for Mercy, a slew of bug fixes, and more. Towards the end of August, the game got two new modes: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch.

Overwatch was officially released on May 24, 2016, and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
