Four New Overwatch Character Skins Celebrating Game’s First Anniversary Surface

It’s hard to believe that almost one year ago, Overwatch started a new craze and fan movement that very well may have changed the face of the first person shooter game genre forever. Ever since Blizzard Entertainment confirmed that celebrations commemorating this momentous occasion would indeed be taking place this next month, fans have been wondering just what specific fandemonium that this would entail.  Well, now we have a more concrete idea concerning one aspect of the celebrations, as four new Overwatch Character Skins have been revealed, to reward fans for contributing to the success of the game.

Footage of these new Overwatch character skins has been posted on the official Korean Overwatch Twitter account, which as a special announcement is reflective of how ubiquitous the game has now been with its Korean audience and Korean culture. Shown are the four new character skins for Bastion, Pharah, Soldier 76 and Zarya that will be available during the anniversary celebration events that start on May 23rd. The video seen above shows each of the new skins in full 360 degree glory, and the care for these new skins can clearly be seen in the details.



The Bastion gives the robot a nice orange and sporty look, while Pharah’s skin gives her a lighter blue skin compared to her standard darker blue. Solider 76 also gets a sporty orange costume, while Zarya’s gives her some cool new power armor. What do you guys think? Are you excited for these four new Overwatch Character Skins?

    Not a 100% sure what it is, possibly simplified Chinese, but that’s definitely not Korean.
