The Overwatch one-year anniversary celebration doesn’t start until May 23, but fans of the game can already admire some upcoming content that Blizzard has teased.
Keeping with the idea that Overwatch is a global force for good, the skins were teased via the Korean Overwatch Twitter account, while the emotes came courtesy of the Brazilian Overwatch Twitter account.
Let’s listen to a some of those voice lines from Winston, Soldier 76, Symmetra, Reinhardt, McCree, Roadhog, and (prepare to cringe) Lucio:
