The third incarnation of the Halloween Terror event it slated to begin on Tuesday, October 9 as teased by Blizzard earlier this week. While Junkenstein’s Revenge doesn’t sound like it’ll have too much different, but Jeff did say in an off-hand comment during the most recent Developer Update that Junkenstein’s Monster would have a wife. We don’t know if that means only a skin, or if it means they’ll also be added to the game mode as well.

Earlier this week we got a look at DoomFish (Swamp Monster), Banshee Moira, and Spider Widowmaker.

LEGO Overwatch teased again.

This week Blizzard teased LEGO Overwatch again, this time with Jeff Kaplan putting together a Tracer minifig in a small promotional video. The announcement said news on the sets are coming soon, but no further details were given. Earlier this year, Brick Fanatics suggested a LEGO Overwatch show may be coming to Netflix, but this still has not been confirmed. At some point, the LEGO Overwatch page was updated to add a quote from Winston, a bunch of bananas, and a jar of peanut butter.
