Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017: Junkenstein's Revenge
Junkenstein's Revenge was an incredibly popular part of Halloween Terror last year, and provided the game's first real PVE experience. Teams of four compete here to take down wave upon wave of undead creatures, interspersed with boss fights against a handful of undead heroes from the Overwatch character roster.
Not only does Junkenstein's Revenge make a return in this year's version of the event, there's a new Endless Mode for you to tackle. A new Legendary difficulty setting should also provide a pretty hair-raising experience for even the most combat-hardened player.
