Overwatch’s Blizzard World update is finally here and as with any major Overwatch update, fans are poring over all the new skins, emotes and highlight intros. Of course, new skins are the biggest addition to Overwatch’s cosmetic item catalog, and luckily Blizzard went all out with this latest update. Some are playful crossovers with other Blizzard franchises, while others are great skins for characters that sorely need them. Without further ado, here are the 10 best skins from Overwatch’s most recent update.
Pairing Overwatch’s massive hook-throwing pig man and Diablo’s massive hook-throwing demon is so natural it’s hard to see why Blizzard didn’t do it earlier. Roadhog has had some fun skins in the past, but this is the first one that feels like it really captures the silent but deadly tank’s more terrifying side.
The fact that both Roadhog and Diablo’s butcher demon have a hook on a chain might seem like Blizzard is recycling ideas, but why complain when the results are so metal? The piercings on his chest are a gruesome visual reference to the butcher demon’s scars and the helmet is perfect for Roadhog’s already Mad Max feel. It’s safe to assume that this butcher won’t be serving pork though.
