Blizzard is celebrating the spookiest time of the year with Junkenstein’s Revenge – an Overwatch seasonal event where you team up with three other players and face off against a host of horrific enemies, including Junkenstein and his Monster, the mysterious Summoner, the Reaper, and the Witch of the Wilds (read more at the official website). The event is going on now until 01 November.

This year, they’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. Plus, unlock over 50 new seasonal items—including new legendary skins like Dracula Reaper, Van Helsing McCree, Totally 80’s Zarya, and Dragon Symmetra—alongside last year’s Halloween Terror gear.

To celebrate the event, I’m giving away a custom Junkrat Xbox One S console, complete with a matching Junkrat controller. The winner will also receive a code for Overwatch – Game Of The Year Edition, plus Xbox Game Pass (3-month subscription) and Xbox Live Gold (12-month subscription).

Blizzard just released an animated short for their upcoming team-based shooter – Overwatch.

“Recall” tells the story of Winston – a super-intelligent, genetically engineered gorilla, Winston is a brilliant scientist and champion for humanity’s potential. After spending several years working as a scientist for Overwatch, Winston has gone into seclusion since its fall, cut off from the world he believes in, longing for the days of heroism to return. He wields impressive inventions on the battlefield—including a short-ranged Tesla Cannon, Jump Pack, and Portable Shield Projector. But his most powerful weapon can only be unleashed by embracing his animal nature.

Weapons & Abilities:

Tesla Cannon: Winston’s weapon fires a short-range electric barrage for as long as he holds down the trigger.

Jump Pack: Assisted by his energy pack, Winston lunges through the air, dealing significant damage and staggering nearby enemies when he lands.

Barrier Projector: Winston’s barrier projector extends a bubble-shaped field that absorbs damage until it’s destroyed. Allies protected by the barrier can return fire from within it.

Primal Rage: Winston embraces his animal nature, significantly boosting his health and making him very difficult to kill, strengthening his melee attack, and allowing him to use his Jump Pack ability more frequently. While raging, Winston can only make melee and Jump Pack attacks.

Overwatch: Origins Open Beta Dates: May 5-9

*Pre-order Overwatch and get early access to the Open Beta for you and a friend. Early Access goes from May 3rd to May 4th and is only available at participating retailers.

Overwatch: Origins Edition Is Now Available For Digital Pre-order And Pre-download On Xbox One
