With the launch of Heroes of the Storm 2.0, Blizzard added some Overwatch characters into the game, and also introduced what appeared to be skins that were available to gamers who played Heroes of the Storm. For gamers who play console games exclusively, this meant that they had no way of accessing those skins, and some console players have since voiced out their frustration.

However the good news is that Overwatch’s director Jeff Kaplan has since reassured console gamers that these skins will be added to Overwatch loot boxes in the future. In a post on the forums, Kaplan said, “We completely understand that there are some players who do not own or have access to a PC to play Heroes of the Storm. Because of this, we plan to add both the Oni Genji skin and the Officer D.Va skin to the normal, base Overwatch loot box at some point in the future.”

However if you do own a PC, you should check it out even if it is just for the skins. Heroes of the Storm is a free download and you only need to pay if you want to purchase characters or skins, although right now there is a free promotion running that lets gamers redeem 20 heroes for free.
