In anticipation for the Overwatch Retribution limited event, Blizzard has been teasing new skins based on the game's lore and history.

New seasonal mission Overwatch Retribution is set to begin on April 10 and last until April 30, and Blizzard has been slowly teasing new skins for Reaper, McCree, Genji, and Moira as we see them return to their Blackwatch days. As Reaper, McCree and Genji already have Blackwatch outfits, Moira was the first to be teased for the event.

These skins, obviously, will be the Blackwatch outfits for each character as we explore the group tearing through Talon enemies in this new PvE campaign. Additionally, other characters will be getting skins as well, including “Scion Hanzo” and “Talon Doomfist.” You can check out each teased character below courtesy of the Overwatch Twitter.

The Overwatch Retribution event focuses on Blackwatch, the black-ops counterpart to Overwatch dealing with secret operations and intrigue. The trailer for the event tells us that it will be set eight years ago and will apparently be set during a mission in Italy. Something appears to have gone horribly wrong during the mission, and players will get to delve deeper into the untold history of Blackwatch in a series of campaigns during the month of April.

Overwatch was released May 24, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Overwatch Retribution will be running from April 10, 2018 to April 30, 2018. You can check out our review of the game here. Of course, if you still haven’t picked up Overwatch you can grab the Game of the Year Edition on Amazon, which offers 10 bonus loot boxes.
