Junkenstein is back for more Revenge in Overwatch
Once again Halloween is upon us and of course, that means we are treated to Halloween Terror in Overwatch. Those that login before November 4 will be able to partake in weekly challenge missions for a limited-time spray, icon and an epic skin each week for Sombra, Brigitte and Echo (in that order).
Not only that but we see the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge with some new challenges thrown in for players to overcome. Each week will see two different challenge missions released, so six in total, and will change the game up, forcing players to adapt or die. The different challenge missions are:
- Week 1: Vengeful Ghost, Frenzied Stampede
- A deadly ghost chases players
- Zomnics move faster
- Week 2: Volatile Zomnics, Three They Were
- Zomnics explode near players
- Only three players but they deal more damage
- Week 3: Mystery Swap, Shocking Surprise
- Heroes periodically randomised
- Some enemies spawn Shock-Tires on death
That is not all though, as players will now also have the opportunity to play as Baptiste and Ashe in Junkstein’s Revenge should they choose (or get one of them in the randomised Mystery Swap challenge).
This Halloween is also a special one for Overwatch, as it sees the first anniversary of the release of the game on the Switch. To celebrate its first birthday, Switch users can download a free trial of Overwatch from October 20th and those that find themselves hooked can take advantage of 50% off the Legendary Edition until October 25th.
