Overwatch Halloween Event Free Skins
With loot boxes no longer in play, we can assume in terms of events, Blizzard is either going to make cosmetics puchasable via the in-game store.
Or, do a seperate event battle pass, similar to what other titles such as Fortnite, and Apex Legends do.
However, they've already announced one skin that will be free for players for just logging in, and this comes in the form of the Cursed Reaper skin.
To claim this skin follow the steps below.
The team continues to work to deploy further stability updates, with another patch planned for later this week, and we are monitoring the game closely for emergent issues and bugs. We’ve been keeping you all up to date on the forums with separate posts, but moving forward, our known issues will be tracked here.
We apologize for any issues players experienced around the game’s launch. To help make up for any lost time, we’re planning to run several Double Match XP weekends: we will confirm the specific dates for these soon. We’ll also be giving all players who log in from October 25 through to the end of Season One an all-new Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin and a Health Pack Weapon Charm. These items will become part of your collection from the first time you log in during that time window.
Overwatch Halloween Details
While Blizzard hasn't shared much around the event, they've detailed that we're going to be able to play as Sojourn, Junker Queen, Kiriko, and Ashe for the event specific mode.
However, we'll be sure to update this page as we hear more news.
