Get set for the new Overwatch update today which adds tons of cosmetic items, including skins.

The Overwatch update release time is expected to be around 6-7pm GMT! We’ll update you right here when it’s live.

With over 100 items, including emotes, Epic and Legendary skins, the update lands on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

You can grab these new items from loot boxes, though if you got some cash in your pocket you can also purchase them from the Hero Gallery.

“We’re expanding our core cosmetics collection to include over 100 new items – including skins, sprays, player icons, emotes, and more – for all 26 heroes,” confirms Blizzard.

“And, starting January 23, you'll be able to earn these cosmetics in standard Loot Boxes as well as unlock them via the Hero Gallery all year round.”
