Overwatch‘s Halloween Terror 2017 event is now live across all platforms, bringing with it new a host of new outfits and an updated version of last year’s Junkenstein’s Revenge PvE mode.

Running now until November 1st, the Halloween Terror event introduces over 50 new character items, including eight festive Legendary skins. Some of the skins were leaked prior to the event going live, but now fans can see the full selection of new Halloween-themed skins, available for heroes McCree, Mei, Reaper, Zenyatta, Symmetra, Torbjorn, Zarya, and Ana.

In addition to the eight new skins, all Halloween skins from last year’s event are once again free to purchase- this time at a discounted price- such as Junkenstein’s Monster Roadhog and Junkenstein Junkrat.

Speaking of Junkenstein, the returning wave-based survival mode Junkenstein’s Revenge has had some new life shocked into it. Unlike last year, players will have the option of taking on endless waves of Junkenstein’s minions in a never-ending fight for survival. Four additional heroes are also now playable in the mode—Genji, Widowmaker, Torbjorn, and Zenyatta—and Symmetra joins Junkenstein’s collection of mini-bosses. The longer a squad survives, the higher up they will find themselves on the mode’s new leaderboard.

Those that enjoy the Halloween aesthetic of Junkenstein’s Revenge will be happy to learn that the Payload Hybrid maps Eichenwalde and Hollywood have undergone Halloween makeovers for the duration of the event.

In other Overwatch news, the popular hero shooter could be getting a sequel or spinoff, based on recent developer job listings.
