Overwatch Halloween Skins: Every NEW Halloween Terror 2018 Character Skin for next event (Pic: BLIZZARD)
Blizzard has been systematically revealing new skins for Overwatch over the past few days, all in the lead up to the 2018 Overwatch Halloween Terror event – which kicks off tomorrow (9th October).
Blizzard confirmed the start date for the seasonal event earlier this week with a cryptic message that simply read:
"Theres a rumor among explorers
About a monolithic lair
Home to terrifying horrors
Heroes, how will you prepare?"
Unfortunately, an achievements menu on the Public Test Realm seemed to reveal the upcoming skins earlier than Blizzard expected, and since the accidental leak, we've seen the developer slowly working through the characters listed.
You can see teased skins – and what's been revealed so far – below.

So far, we've had Moira, Pharah, Hammond, Widowmaker and Doomfist revealed.
If previous events are anything to go by, we can expect returning skins to cost 1,000 credits whilst new skins will set you back 3,000.
It looks like we can expect a new map potentially dropped alongside the event, too – Blizzard has tweeted "Theres a rumour among explorers about a monolithic lair" … does that mean we can expect a new location for our escapades? It's likely.
At the time of writing, we're expecting one more skin announcement from Blizzard – we'll likely get this evening (Monday at about 3pm BST).
It's possible the new skin will be Solider 76 – it's the only realistic gap in the leaked list (below) we've seen so far.

User McManus26 on Reddit has some theories on what these new skins could be, which we've included below:
Scarecrow Hammond. This icon is very similar to Wrecking Ball's default icon. The skin could also be named "Ghost", one of the recently leaked legendary names, but he's not the only contender.
Brigitte or Moira. My money is on Brigitte with a different hairpiece/tiara to hold her bangs rather than her trademark pins. Could also be "Ghost", or "Spider Queen" if the hairpiece is indeed a tiara, even if I'm naturally inclined to think a spider skin would go to Widowmaker.
Winston. I've heard some Doomfist speculation on this one, but Winston is the only one to have his big monkey nose included in his player icons. Looks a bit like the Creature of the Black Lagoon ?
Knight Pharah. The shape of the helmet is exactly the same. Pharah is also a character that wears armor, and could easily get a fun medieval twist – while Brigitte and Reinhardt are already medieval themed, which would make a skin following that theme a bit pointless.
Slasher Soldier:76. Between the facemask theme, the scar across the face and the similar hairstyle, this one is the most obvious. The leaked "slasher" is obviously a Friday the 13th reference.
Bride Sombra between the similar haircut, the dual highlight in the hair (which I think is what spawned this skin to begin with : Sombra already had 2 bride-like strikes in her hair) and the coat collar, it's a lot of hints towards Sombra.
