Overwatch Reveals Legendary Doomfist Skin for Halloween | Gaming News
Not too long ago, Blizzard Entertainment officially announced the start date for the 2018 version of Overwatch’s annual Halloween Terror event, which is going to be kicking off next week for players on all platforms. Following this announcement, the video game developer has now decided to reveal a Legendary skin for Doomfist that’s on the way that turns the cybernetically enhanced hero into a watery creature from the depths.
As seen in the tweet below, Overwatch players will soon be able to nab themselves the Legendary Swamp Monster Doomfist skin in the team-based shooter, as it turns the Nigerian martial artist into a version of the classic Universal Studios monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon. The level of detail on the forthcoming skin is impeccable, and it changes the whole dynamic of the character altogether in a Halloween-friendly way.
Just keep swimming.
Make a splash as SWAMP MONSTER DOOMFIST (Legendary)!

There’s no doubt that Overwatch‘s reveal of the Legendary Swamp Monster Doomfist skin will get players excited for what is likely to be one of the biggest in-game events of October, as Blizzard’s artists often design some of the most highly coveted cosmetics for the season. With this being the case, it will be interesting to see what the developer has planned for some of the game’s newest members, with the likes of Brigette, Moira, and Wrecking Ball having yet to partake in the holiday’s festivities.
All things considered, Overwatch should see a decent uptick in players over the next few weeks, as the game’s Halloween Terror event is generally considered by the community to be one of the title’s most fun celebrations. That said, though, with October also having its fair share of major new game releases like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2, Blizzard’s shooter might see a slight drop in players.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
