Â Earlier this week, I was heaping praise on Grand Theft Auto Onlineâ€™s little seasonal additions. I was praising them up like the praise-heapinâ€™ son of a mad mothereffer I am. Itâ€™s the small details that make the difference, and getting the chance to have vicious Christmas snowball fights on the streets of Los Santos was one of them. Â
Rockstar have been good with that through GTA Onlineâ€™s lifespan. Bonnie and Clyde-themed vehicles and other extras for Valentineâ€™s are something we can all get behind, and that sort of deal fits in well with the gameâ€™s little-and-often hunks of DLC. They were free, too, which is never something to bitch about.
But we know all that. We also know that Street Fighter V is getting a Halloween update, full of premium-priced costumes and a creepy new take on the titleâ€™s Russia stage. Now hereâ€™s the Overwatch guys, throwing in their own Halloween-tastic two cents.
The mega popular hero shooter already dropped something a bit special for the Rio Olympics, and an Xbox Store leak seems to have confirmed another event. As Game Spot reports, thereâ€™s been no word from Blizzard themselves about a Halloween event, but Redditor ChronosHero nabbed this image from the store:
According to this, during the Overwatch: Halloween Terror event, players will be able to grab themselves loot boxes. Theyâ€™ll contain all the usual business: Skins, emotes, victory poses and such. This is unconfirmed as yet, as I say, but Iâ€™d say itâ€™s a safe bet. Iâ€™ve got one ogling eye on Blizzard for official news.
