Blizzard have revealed all of the skins for new Overwatch hero Baptiste on the Public Test Realm (PTR).
Baptiste was originally added to the Overwatch PTR on February 26, but initially only the hero himself was available for testing, without any of the extra cosmetics items that all heroes ultimately launch with.
As Baptiste’s full release gets closer, however, Blizzard have now added the full range of cosmetics that will join him on the live servers. Most interestingly, this means players can get a look at the skin options that will be available upon his release.
As with all previous heroes, Baptiste will launch with 10 skins – four Rare, a simply recoloring of his default skin, two Epic, which have a themed design but stick largely to the basic form of his original skin, and four Legendary.
The Legendary skins make the most significant changes to Baptiste’s basic look, and as with all heroes before him, the release options come in two pairs, each of which offers two variants on a particular theme. In Baptiste’s case, these are the Desert Ops and Spec Ops, which see him specially outfitted for warfare, as well as the self-explanatory Buccaneer and Pirate.
In addition to the default skins, Baptiste will also be able to boast home and away colors for each of the 20 Overwatch League teams. These skins can be purchased for 100 League Tokens per team, and doing so grants both home and away skins for the team in question.
Baptiste’s skin options:
Blizzard haven’t yet announced a release date for Baptiste, but if they follow the same schedule as previous March hero releases, he can be expected to hit the live servers around March 20, give or take a day or two.
