Yesterday, Blizzard teased a new skin for the beloved Overwatch hero Pharah, an Egyptian soldier who, along with her mother, served in the Egyptian military. The new skin, though, sends some mixed cultural signals: Pharah is wearing a white, Egyptian-style headscarf, but also bears distinctly Native American patterns across her armour. Earlier this week, we asked Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan about Pharah's controversial background, which yesterday's teased skin may help explain.
