Crossover cosplay time!

As reported yesterday, new map "Blizzard World" will be going live in Overwatch next week. Alongside the new venue, some funky new skins, sprays and other cosmetic junk is also coming to the online arena-shooter.

The new legendary-class skins are in keeping with Blizzard World's theme of the studio's catalogue, allow some of Overwatch's heroes to play dress-up as characters from other Blizz franchises. These include Diablo-themed skins for Roadhogg, Zarya and Reinhardt, Warcraft designs for Torbjorn and Doomfist, and some StarCraft gear for Orisia and Widowmaker, with the latter sporting an awesome Nova skin.

Blizzard have confirmed that there will be other new skins that have yet to be revealed, rumored to be based, once again, on the Chinese New Year. The new range of Sprays may, in fact, give away the designs for some of these outfits (Note D.Va and Hanzo, for example). Rounding out the new content is a selection of player icons for all heroes.

The Blizzard World map and related update go live in Overwatch January 23.
