So I was right about them being basic colour mapping skins!

I am so glad you guys decided to do this, helps spice up the looks of some of the heroes just by changing the colors.

Love it! Cinder looks dope especially

I wanted to add a bit more context to this announcement.

What looks like a simple hue shift is actually a lot more complicated than you might think. Without going too much into inside baseball, Hero Skins, even Commons, aren’t as simple as moving an RGB slider, hitting Export, and calling it a day. Each Hero is made up of parts, and they’re not all built the same way. If you took the same color value on Odachi’s shoulder pad and applied it to Ryker’s, the color wouldn’t look even remotely similar.

Getting this many Skins into the game took a phenomenal effort from our art team, and I want to thank them for putting in the time and effort. It might not look like it at first glance, but the amount of love and effort that went into designing, producing, naming, scripting, and QA’ing this many Skins is nothing short of astounding.

This Skin content isn’t designed to generate revenue. This one is 100% for you guys. You asked for it! Use your Skin Nanodust and Skin Tokens to unlock these and level them up. This gives every single Hero a way to gain stat boosts. I’m glad this announcement has been well-received, and we’re looking forward to showing you the rest of the 3.0 update over the next little while!

absolute win

You guys left out Prophet skin. I didn’t see him on the skin list

Prophet already has a common skin. Heroes that currently do not have common skins are getting one with the new update.
