Four new animated WarCraft 3 sprays were sneakily added to Overwatch with the Halloween Terror update, but fans won’t be able to purchase them with credits as usual.

Overwatch’s October 15 update brought the latest installment of the Halloween Terror event live, introduced a massive new patch and saw the game’s Switch port come out as well.

Also in the update, Blizzard apparently snuck in four new animated sprays to celebrate the upcoming release of WarCraft 3 Reforged.

What are the sprays?

The new WarCraft 3 sprays in Overwatch feature the basic infantry unit of each race in the game: Archers for Night Elf, Footmen for Humans, Ghouls for Undead and Grunts for Orcs.

The sprays show each unit’s attacking animation and are some of the only animated sprays in Overwatch outside of the Competitive rewards for making into Top 500 each season.

How do we unlock them?

The “secret” sprays can only be unlocked by purchasing WarCraft 3 Reforged Spoils of War Edition, which is available now and includes bonus items in a bunch of other Blizzard games as well.

There’s still no definite release date for WarCraft 3 Reforged just yet, but we should know more come BlizzCon at the beginning of November.

WarCraft Overwatch skins are now available

The Halloween Terror update also brought a load of new skins into Overwatch, but along with the spooky seasonal skins, Blizzard also made the BlizzCon exclusive Night Elf skins for Genji and Symmetra available.

Players who’ve purchased a BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Ticket should have the Illidan Genji skin and Tyrande Symmetra unlocked in the hero gallery following October 15.

The new WarCraft 3 sprays are available now for anyone who’s already pre-ordered the Spoils of War edition and should be unlocked immediately for anyone who decides to pick it up.

WarCraft 3 Reforged news is just the tip of the iceberg for what we could see at BlizzCon this year – which could have some big Overwatch news in-store as well.

Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
