Take a sneak peek at four new ‘Overwatch’ skins coming next week
Blizzard revealed four new Overwatch hero skins last night on the official Korean Overwatch Twitter and they look pretty slick.
The new skins for Bastion, Pharah, Soldier: 76, and Zarya will be available during Overwatch‘s anniversary event starting May 23 and running into mid-June.
Zarya is getting a helmet for the first time in Overwatch (complete with an opening for her colorful hair to stick through) and Soldier: 76 appears to have some new cyborg limbs. Meanwhile, Bastion has gotten all pipe-y and Pharah’s armor has a cool new falcon theme reminiscent of the Egyptian god Ra.
The skins will have a chance of dropping in lootboxes during the anniversary event, but you aren’t guaranteed to receive them. You’ll also be able to spend in-game currency on them throughout the event.
Most Overwatch events tend to have at least 10 new hero skins, so expect to see a lot more once the event is revealed next Tuesday.
