The forthcoming event will also bring a new PvE mode. While the Campaign will be available in 2023, this PvE mode will be co-op and the Heroes that will be available to play in this year's event are speculated to be Sojourn, Junker Queen, Kiriko, and Ashe.

While there is no official confirmation on how the mode will play out, fans have been speculating that it will be similar to the PvE iteration introduced in the prequel's Halloween event.


It involved four Heroes who fought against hordes of 'Zomnic' zombies. They came in waves and players had to survive them. While Junkrat was the previous iteration's primary villain, Sombra will be the official bride of the event and thus the primary antagonist this time around, as teased in the Battle Pass trailer.
