Overwatch’s Halloween plans may have been leaked ahead of time.

It looks like Overwatch might be getting some spooky themed loot boxes in a leaked Halloween Terror event.

Reddit user ChronosHero posted the above image apparently taken from the Xbox Store that details an upcoming Halloween event.

You can read the text from the image below, detailing the contents of the loot boxes, but interestingly there’s something in the image itself that is getting people pretty excited.

The purple sweet on the right depicts the skull logo that we’ve all come to associate with Sombra, the next rumoured hero.

Blizzard hasn’t announced any Halloween plans just yet, so it’s best to remain skeptical for now. Here’s the text from the image:

“Celebrate Halloween with some frightening treats for your heroes during a new event: Overwatch Halloween Terror!

Trick out your collection by picking up Halloween Loot Boxes, available for a limited time*. Every Loot Box contains up to four cosmetic items, including at least one Halloween skin, spray, highlight intro, emote, victory pose, player icon, voice line, or credits that you can use to unlock other items. More than 100 Halloween items are waiting to be unwrapped!

If your Halloween Loot Box contains an item that is already in your collection, you will instead receive coins.

*Halloween Loot Boxes are available to purchase or earn in-game until 11/1/16 at 4pm PT.”
