Overwatch's New Anniversary Skins Are All Over The Place

Overwatch’s third anniversary event is live, and it is as Britney Spears once famously said: “The taste of your lips, I’m on a ride. [Roadhog]’s toxic, I’m slipping under.”

The new batch of skins runs the gamut from cutesy (albeit infantilizing, when it comes to some fans’ takes on D.Va’s schoolgirl outfit) to literally toxic AF, in Roadhog’s case. They’re part of the annual anniversary event, which also features different seasonal brawls each day of the week and, crucially, the live game debut of the Overwatch Workshop, which allows players to create their own modes with an elaborate suite of tools.

The brawls are recycled from previous events, unfortunately, but the Overwatch machine trundles onward slowly, and we must take what we can get. Thus, skins:

Winston’s gargoyle skin looks so good that I might try playing him this evening until I remember that I’m garbage at Winston. On the downside, Brigitte is a cop now. But then, I suppose she always did have a tendency to unceremoniously halt parties by shield-bashing them into oblivion. I wonder how she feels about the carceral state.

    I really like the Legendary skins for Mei, Winston, Roadhog & DVA. The rest of the re-skins are 100% forgettable though.

    Either way, I look forward to receiving a standard-year-round-legendary skin in my boxes :)

    Love the Mei and D.VA ones. Dont mind the Pharah one. And the Roadhog and Winston are hilariously the over the top. but that Widow one. It is just so, um um, meh?

    *patiently waits for the inevitable rule 34 stuff for that first DVA & Mei Costume*

      The costumes exist because of Rule 34.

        Still waiting for that bloke who posted on the Overwatch forums to get his wish--that every Overwatch model gets a skin without shoes.

          I somehow don't think the design team want to animate toes.

    Jesus Christ.

    Cop skin looks pretty good though.

      Think Nathan might have studied Foucault by any chance :P.

      Now we have two police skins with D.Va. Another 3 more and you could field a police team

        I really want them to go all-in and make a Patlabor skin for D.Va.
