Blizzard has been teasing Overwatch skins for the past week, but the ones shown on Twitter in the event’s lead-up aren’t the only new cosmetics. Three more Overwatch Halloween skins have leaked ahead of the event’s start later today.

Reportedly found on a Chinese Overwatch ad and posted to Reddit, the skins are for Mei, Sombra, and Soldier: 76. Mei’s skin is pumpkin-themed and likely rated epic, while Sombra and Soldier: 76 are getting Legendary skins: Junkenstein’s Bride and Slasher, respectively.

Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said in a Developer Update posted last month that Junkenstein would get a bride. Turns out, it’s Sombra. Sombra’s skin gives her a new, slicked-back hairstyle, while Soldier: 76’s Slasher skin turns him into a creepy serial killer. Mei’s skin is a basic re-skin, but with pumpkins.

Earlier in the month, Blizzard revealed the other Halloween Terror skins: 
Spider WidowmakerEnchanted Armor PharahJack-O’-Lantern Wrecking BallSwamp Monster Doomfist, Undead McCree, and Banshee Moira. Five are Legendary skins, so the full total of legendaries is seven. Three, including today’s leak, are epic-ranked skins.

Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event is likely less than an hour away at the time of writing. (Blizzard doesn’t release official launch times, but 1pm CT is standard for Overwatch events.) Alongside the skins, Blizzard is bringing back the player-vs-environment brawl, Junkenstein’s Revenge, for another year. Halloween Terror 2018 will run through Oct. 31. Once the event passes, the brawl and the skins will be stuffed back into the vault until next year.
