Overwatch Update Allows You To Switch Skins Before Matches

It launches today!

Blizzard

For those who are a bit too indecisive when it comes to Overwatch skins, Blizzard will be calming your neurosis with this latest update which allows you to switch skins before a match begins.

Overwatch’s Twitter account shared a short clip on their page, depicting the new functionality. As you can see in the video, a little tab will now appear in the top right-hand corner which will showcase whatever skins the player owns and allow them to equip it before a match. Players should not though, that skins will not be able to be changed while you are in a match.

The functionality goes live today along with the Year of the Dog event. A new Capture the Flag map set in Thailand along with changes to the mode are also in store. If you weren’t hyped up enough Six new Legendary skins exclusive to the event will also be added.
