The upcoming Season 7 of Overwatch 2 titled Rise of Darkness will introduce a frightful array of new cosmetic skins when it launches on October 10th.

Rise of Darkness leans heavily into Halloween themes with sinister skins that transform the heroes into monsters and ghosts. Although not a full Diablo crossover, some skins directly reference the dark fantasy RPG, like the Lilith Moira legendary unveiled earlier. Other new cosmetics provide lighter takes perfect for the season.
At least 17 skins will be obtainable either on the free or premium Season 7 Battle Pass tracks. Highlights from the free track include Crimson Clown Soldier: 76 and Victorian Ghost Lucio. The premium pass adds standouts like ghostly Widowmaker, Azmodan Wrecking Ball, and the Mythic Onryo Hanzo skin.
Purchasing the Ultimate Battle Pass bundle additionally includes the Lilith Moira, Inarius Pharah, and pumpkin-headed Bastion skins on top of the premium pass rewards. Other creepy or cute costumes like angelic Mercy, zombie Ashe, and rubber ducky Zenyatta will appear directly in the in-game shop.
A special Halloween Terror Credits Shop will also allow purchasing select skins like Gilded Hunter Sombra using Overwatch Credits from October 10th to November 7th. Based on teasers, barbarian Junker Queen and witch Kiriko may emerge here too.
