Both Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm have some exciting new updates coming up in the near future and fans are understandably getting excited about the possibilities. First up is the Overwatch Halloween event, which is due out later today. We’re still not sure exactly what the new mode will be, but rumoured glimpses of Dr. Junkenstein suggests he may be back for his second dose of revenge. There have been some leaks though, with a number of news skins cropping up on the Overwatch reddit, including Lovecraftian Zenyatta and a vampire Mei which you can check out below.
Meanwhile the latest character to make the jump to Heroes of the Storm is Junkrat, everyone’s favourite Aussie demolitionist. Junkrat is a ranged assassin who uses explosives to deal massive damage to enemies. Like in Overwatch, Junkrat drops grenades when killed which deals damage to enemies in the area. He can also lob bouncing grenades, and leave explosive traps that can be detonated at any time. His heroic abilities allow him to deploy a highly-maneuverable mobile bomb or take a ride on his custom-built rocket, kamikaze dive-bomb his targets, leave grenades, and reappear unscathed in the altar a few moments later. You can check out more info on the official site. The Heroes of the Storm Halloween event will be a little later than Overwatch’s, kicking off nest week on October 17th.
