Junkenstein’s Revenge returns for Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, along with new game mode Endless Night

The second annual Halloween Terror event for Overwatch will include the return of last year’s arcade game mode, Junkenstein’s Revenge, and a new one called Endless Night.

The Halloween Terror event began Tuesday and runs for three weeks, and it also included the release of eight new legendary skins. Junkenstein’s Revenge was added last year as the event’s arcade game mode. In teams of four, players choose to play as either McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo, and Ana to defend Adlersbrunn from Junkenstein. The players’ objective is to hold out until the final wave while going up against hordes of Zomnics, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Witch of the Wilds, the Reaper, and Dr. Junkenstein himself. The difficulty of this game mode can be adjusted from easy, normal and hard, and a performance grade is given based on the number of Zomnics killed, how many times players die and how much damage is taken by the castle gates of Adlersbrunn.

Endless Night is a derivative of Junkenstein’s Revenge, and it is a simple co-op horde mode that pits players against endless waves of enemies in incremental difficulty until either the enemies reach the doors of Adlersbrunn or the players get wiped out. Players can choose to be one of four heroes — Genji, Torbjorn, Zenyatta, and Widowmaker — and see how long they can last against the waves. An all-new leaderboard for the game mode will be added to the game, recording which players have lasted the longest.

Adlersbrunn is a re-skinned portion of the assault-and-escort map Eichenwalde, and the rest of Eichenwalde as well as Hollywood will receive a Halloween-themed map design during the event.
