Blizzard’s multiplayer shooter “Overwatch” is in the midst of its Halloween Terror event, which adds a new mode and all sorts of fun costumes to the game just in time for All Hallows’ Eve.
In the new mode, called Junkenstein’s Revenge, a team of four players has to prevent waves of enemies from invading a spooky-looking castle. Along the way, more powerful enemies will pop up for an added challenge, complete with a dramatic zoom-in from the camera.
A full playthrough of the new mode only takes about ten minutes, so once you play it a few times, you’ll get a sense for the structure – including exactly when and where those powerful enemies will appear.
And, because those melodramatic reveals happen in real time within the game itself rather than with a pre-rendered cutscene, they’re ripe for being messed with. Since gamers in general are a mischievous bunch, that’s exactly what they’re doing. It’s pretty hilarious.
For example, Ana doesn’t waste any time laying the beatdown on Reaper.
But Soldier: 76 really just wants to be Mercy’s hype man.
Hanzo, on the other hand, is hamming it up and stealing the spotlight.
A+ for effort here, Ana. Execution needs work.
The Halloween Terror event is running until November 1. Give it a go, if for no other reason than to photobomb some poor enemy trying to have a moment.
