Summer is approaching—and Blizzard’s heroes are getting ready for the sun.
In Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard is giving Overwatch hero Tracer a beach-inspired skin, and it’s amazing. The skin, called Slip ‘N Stream, has Tracer not only donning a swimsuit and water shoes, but equipped with two high-powered water pistols, too.
And she’s not the only hero getting a summer look. Tychus and Stitches both will get new outfits for the summer. Surfboard mounts and sprays are also coming to Heroes.
Last year, Blizzard’s summer event in Overwatch introduced the Summer Games skins, celebrating the Olympics. Each of those skins—and the entire event, really—were awesome, but this year, we’re hoping for a beach party. Blizzard’s already given us a glimpse into what that might look like, with a speedo-wearing Roadhog spray in two separate events, the Summer Games and Winter Wonderland.
It’s not hard to imagine Soldier: 76 as a lifeguard with a little too much sunscreen on his nose, or D.Va inside a Scuba-themed MEKA. We’d even like to see Reinhardt surrounded by pool toys, or Pharah spiking down volleyballs.
But what’s most important in a summer event is clear: Everyone gets a water gun.
