New cosmetics

There are five new Legendary Skins:

  • Karasu-Tengu Genji
  • Dai-Tengu Hanzo
  • Werewolf Winston
  • Flying Dutchman Sigma
  • Shin-Ryeong D.Va

We're glad that Genji got a new legendary skin but we're still waiting for the Jekyll/Hyde skin for Moira we talked about in our predictions .

On top of all the skins, we're also getting new highlight intros for Pharah and Widowmaker, a Zombie Walk emote for Reinhardt as well as a bunch of voice lines and sprays.
