Watch: Aoife tries out the new Overwatch Halloween PvE mode

Trick or treating live from 3:30pm.

I love Halloween. Seriously, ask anyone from my wonderful former hometown of Derry and they'll tell you: we take All Hallow's Eve very, very seriously. Over there, you'll feel left out if you aren't in costume. I'm fully expecting to see one or two Overwatch costumes in the crowds this year, which is funny - given some Overwatch characters won't exactly look themselves for the next 19 days.

Blizzard has launched a new limited-time event in the same spirit as its Summer Games, called Halloween Terror. For the next 3 weeks, you can see a new haunted Hollywood, grab over 100 themed costumes, voice lines and emotes from Jack O'Lantern Loot Boxes, and try out the game's very first co-op PvE brawl Junkenstein's revenge, which plays out pretty much like Horde mode but you're limited to four heroes - Hanzo, Ana, McCree and Soldier: 76.

I'm going to dive into the new seasonal stuff from 3:30pm today - opening some new packs and fighting some zomnics. Come keep me company. I'm liable to scare the monsters otherwise.
