Overwatch Halloween loot boxes will launch in less than an hour and will include a mix of new cosmetics, and ones from the 2016 event.

This year's Halloween Terror event will also feature two PvE brawls, one of which is the returning Junkenstein's Revenge.

From the teaser and leaks we know already that there are new skins for McCree, Reaper, Mei, Symmetra and Zenyatta.

They also add, "This year, we've added a new endless mode for Junkenstein's Revenge, with leaderboards to commemorate those who last the longest in their fight against the evil doctor". Over 140 cosmetic items are available, but don't wait too long-these Loot Boxes will disappear in a puff of smoke before you know it. Lastly, Eichenwald and Hollywood's stages have been renovated in a haunted flair for the holiday as bonus maps. Now Eichenwalde is set in a nighttime mode with the castle at its end covered in Junkenstein's machine, lightning generators.

"Overwatch" players who want a bit more challenge will enjoy the "Junkenstein's Revenge: Endless Night".
