Last year's Halloween Terror event brought back Junkenstein's Revenge, a PvE brawl mode where players united to fight Junkenstein and his pals. Each week of the event there were rewards for a set number of wins in quick play, arcade, or competitive mode, with three wins earning an icon, six wins a spray, and nine wins a skin. Seasonal items were available in loot boxes, including those from previous years.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
