The first new skin for Overwatch’s Storm Rising event takes Baptiste back to his roots as a foot soldier for the evil Talon organization.

Overwatch revealed the first new skin for the Storm Rising Archives event and it’s for none other than the game’s newest hero: Baptiste.

Baptiste was released from the PTR to Overwatch on March 19 and ever since he’s been showing up more and more as players figure out how to use his unique kit.

The newest healer to Overwatch was also featured in a Storm Rising skin leak from April 9 that seems to have been legit based on the latest news.

A skin worthy of Baptiste?

Baptiste gets taken back to his origins with the TALON BAPTISTE skin, based on the time he spent as a solider in the organization.

Like Sombra, Doomfist and Widowmaker’s Talon skins, Baptiste’s features white and red armor with the Talon logo on his bandana.

His hair is slightly longer than other skins, which matches up with the leak from April 9 and indicates the other heroes mentioned, McCree, Bastion and Monocled B.O.B. will also be getting skins for Storm Rising.

The skin is listed as a legendary, so it will cost 2000 coins to purchase during the event if players aren’t lucky enough to get it in an event loot box.

When do the rest of the Storm Rising skins come out?

Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
