Overwatch’s Blizzard World update is here with rad new skins and loot

Check out the emotes, highlight intros and skins in new update

Blizzard Entertainment released a new update for Overwatch today that adds a new map, the theme park-inspired Blizzard World, and a bunch of cosmetic items, including skins, emotes, sprays and highlight intro animations. Unlike a lot of other Overwatch content drops, this one’s not a seasonal, limited-time event. Players can earn those new legendary and epic skins for Overwatch from regular loot boxes.

You can check out a fly-through of Blizzard World in the above trailer, which Blizzard released during last year’s BlizzCon. Our friends at Heroes Never Die also have a guide to all the Blizzard references contained within the map.

For a look at all the new skins, which Blizzard has been teasing for the past week, check out the gallery below.

A majority of those skins are tied to the release of Blizzard World, a theme park that pays homage to Diablo, Hearthstone, StarCraft and Warcraft. But there are also plenty of new epic and legendary skins that aren’t Blizzard-themed, like Black Cat D.Va, Kabuki Hanzo and Asp Pharah.

Here are the official names of all those new skins:

Legendary Skins

  • Blackhand Doomfist
  • Black Cat D.Va
  • Kabuki Hanzo
  • Asp Pharah
  • Capoeira Lúcio
  • Ecopoint: Antarctica Mei
  • Immortal Orisa
  • Crusader Reinhardt
  • Butcher Roadhog
  • Magni Torbjörn
  • Nova Widowmaker
  • Barbarian Zarya

Epic Skins

  • Caution Junkrat
  • Royal McCree
  • Hellfire Reaper
  • Peacock Symmetra
  • Carbon Fiber Zenyatta

Today’s update also includes a handful of new emotes for the likes of Genji, Mercy, Sombra, Tracer and Moira.

There are also new Play of the Game highlight intros for Winston, Soldier: 76, Bastion and Ana. They’re beautifully animated — check them out below:

Overwatch’s Blizzard World update is available now for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. A video preview of everything contained within is below.
