Overwatch Halloween skins and lootboxes dropping soon

Following leaks and rampant speculation, we now have what looks like a very legitimate first look at Overwatch‘s upcoming Halloween-themed lootboxes — in particular, the 12 new Halloween skins that let you dress up your favorite heroes in some timely costumes.

The Halloween event, which (according to this banner anyway) launches today and runs till November 1st, also introduces new victory poses, sprays, and a 4-player brawl mode called Junkenstein’s Revenge.

Here’s a nice clear look at the new hero skins, via fansite OverPwn.
