Overwatch 2 October 25 Patch Notes

We’re all aware that Bastion and Torbjorn are currently not available in Overwatch 2, including one of my favorite maps named Junkertown. In a recent confirmation post, Blizzard announced that the missing map and heroes are going to make a return with October 25’s update, which also introduces the new Halloween Terror event.

But that’s not all, there are going to be other changes that will seemingly balance a couple of heroes. Sombra, Genji and Zarya and D.va are among them. Zarya, the impeccable tank destroying pubs all by herself, will finally be sat down on the ground, while Genji and Sombra will no longer have the same flanking proportions as before.

Because we already have a confirmation about the return of Bastion, Torbjorn, and the Junkertown map, we’re due to get a new Overwatch 2 update. The only missing piece is the official patch notes, which are going to be published by Blizzard later today. As for the hero changes, OWL teams have already received the notes, as reflected below.

Overwatch 2 October 25 Patch Notes

HALLOWEEN TERROR 2022

It’s time to celebrate another year of fear: Halloween Terror is returning to Overwatch! Get ready for a shock, because this event introduces the next chapter in the saga of the devious Dr. Junkenstein through our completely revamped, limited time co-op mission, Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride.

Dr. Junkenstein himself will also be making a grand reappearance in the original Junkenstein’s Revenge co-op Brawl, returning for a limited time to Halloween Terror 2022. From now until November 9, join your fellow heroes to confront a host of haunting horrors as you seek to safeguard Eichenwalde— or fall to the Bride’s retribution.
