Overwatch has come into the spotlight recently not only as a result of the launch of Overwatch League–the game’s Esports division–but also the Cosmetics Event which is right around the corner. The event is chocked full of skins, emotes, sprays, and more but Blizzard recently unveiled the upcoming Epic skins that will be available in it.

You can check out the teaser of skins below.

Among the characters to get new Epic skins are McCree, Reaper, Junkrat, Symmetra, and Zenyatta.

McCree’s new skin features a silver-trimmed cape with some dark blue accents very similar to Symmetra’s new skin.

Junkrat looks like he’s straight out of a construction crew with yellow and black stripes similar to something you would see on a bulldozer.

Zenyatta’s skin features a slick black and neon green combination similar to Genji. And last but not least, there’s the new Reaper skin.

Reaper is looking as demonic as ever with a red runic robe and crag-filled shotguns. His mask is a Samurai mix between a demon and a skeleton and it’s just about as badass as can be.

The Overwatch Cosmetics Update will be released tomorrow, January 23. For more on the game check out the release of the Blizzard World map.
