October is here and that means Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event is coming soon.

The Halloween Terror event is one of the original season events in Overwatch. It was just the second event Blizzard ever put in the game, coming in October 2016. Since then, the event has made an appearance every year beginning in the second week of October and lasting until the end of the month. 

Posting to Twitter, Blizzard announced that this year’s Halloween Terror event will begin tomorrow, Oct. 12. The date closely follows its originally suspected start time based on when the event has started every year. The event, which has historically lasted three weeks, will end on Nov. 2.

As one of the more tenured events, Halloween Terror is loaded with cosmetics to acquire. During the upcoming three-week period, players will be able to collect skins, highlight intros, and emotes from previous years’ events.

In total, the event has introduced 20 skins, four highlight intros, five emotes, and 22 victory poses, among other things—and that doesn’t include anything the devs might add this year.

This article will be updated when an official start date for Overwatch’s 2021 Halloween Terror event is announced.
