The Overwatch Halloween Event Is Finally Here!

Reader beware... Overwatch is now full of scares! Welcome to the Overwatch Halloween Event, reVAMPed and better than before! The Zomnics wont stand a chance this time!

The Overwatch Halloween Event Is Finally Here!
Ah... Fall has come once more, and with it, plenty of ghoulish monsters and things that go bump in the night. Yep, it's that time of year again, and Overwatch is still wasting no time this horrifying holiday season. Jeff Kaplan and his team at Blizzard have filled our baskets and pillowcases with plenty of wonderful new treats, as well as old classics that we've been waiting a full year for!

Not only are we greeted with the same jack-o-lootbox and goodies from last year, but now we have eight, count em, EIGHT new legendary skins! Reaper, Zenyatta, Symmetra, and even Torbjorn (among others) are walking home tonight with amazingly designed skins. Not only that, but fans from last year will also finally get an adaptation of McCree's "Vampire Hunter" costume from the comic in the form of his Van Helsing skin. Zenyatta, Zarya, and Mei also bring new legendary skins to the table. Needless to say, they are stunning and even somewhat humorous (looking at you, Zarya).

The Overwatch Halloween Event Is Finally Here!. Get to the point already
Okay, okay. Well, besides the always sought after new skins of any event, this halloween event also brings us new sprays and voice lines. All the characters that where previously available at the time of the first version of the Halloween event get just one new voice line, whilst Sombra, Doomfist, and Orisa get TWO voice lines as well as a "Trick or Treat" spray each. We also get new victory poses for characters like Tracer (surprise, right?), Sombra, Orisa, and a few others.

Strangely enough, We're left with only one highlight intro (for Roadhog), and two emotes (for Mei and Torbjorn) that are new. Though probably disappointing, It'd likely be worse for our Overwatch wallets when we realize how much all this new stuff really costs to get...

The Overwatch Halloween Event Is Finally Here!. The face that'll make you smile as you lose it all
Ah, yes. The dreaded dilemma every seasoned collector of digital Overwatch goodies is sure to identify with. "How many credits will it cost to make sure I get EVERYTHING this time around?" Well, assuming you are starting Overwatch without ever having played the first Halloween Event, to purchase every single holiday item this season will cost you a hefty fee of about 43,525 credits [Includes ALL new items as well as ALL old items at the discounted price]. Otherwise, if we were to assume you have all of the old items, you would still be paying a majority of that price with a bill of approximately 29,925 credits. That leaves only 13,600 credits needed if you were to buy every single classic Halloween item at its current reduced cost. Oy vey, better get on racking up those digital dollars!
