‘Tis the season for spookiness, and hero shooter Overwatch is once again observing All Hallow’s Eve through their Halloween Terror event. This event begins today and will last to October 31, Halloween itself. As one can expect, the event will include multiple new skins and other cosmetics, all lovingly Halloween-themed.

Anyone who has missed the “Junkenstein’s Revenge” game mode will be happy to play it again this season. For those out of the know, the four-player cooperative mode functions much like a typical horde mode, with players choosing from McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo, and Ana to battle against the mad scientist Junkenstein and his host of evil creations, some which are just Halloween versions of familiar Overwatch heroes.

Overwatch fans are likely going to get into the event solely for the cosmetics offered through Halloween Terror; not only will past skins from previous Halloween Terror events be available to obtain through loot boxes, but so will new skins for heroes like Sombra, Wrecking Ball, Reaper, and so many more.

You can check out the full gallery of cosmetics below—be sure to let us know your favorites in the comments. Overwatch is playable on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, with some new LEGO sets based on the game coming soon.
