The wait has finally come to an end and we’ve received details on the new hero, Flicker; namely, his abilities, splash art and an in-game video. Flicker is a sneaky trickster able to disrupt foes with his debilitating abilities.

The previous week, we saw the release of the much awaited ‘Shiro Kage Taka’ Tier 3 skin. This week, we got more to look forward to and save up for in ‘Red Lantern Koshka’ and ‘Killer Bunny Rona’. These are the slightly changed-up versions of the skins released in past seasons. Be sure to save up for them because they look amazing. Along with these, we got to take a look at ‘Sorrowblade Glaive Tier II’. His new skin features the in-game item inspired Sorrowblade and an all-new black fur look. Another skin that has been long – awaited is a Special Edition Ringo skin which will also be releasing in 1.24 as ‘Bakuto Ringo’. This skin has a brand-new look, a smoldering smirk and an automatic pistol. It will be available in the Seasonal Chest as well as for ICE and Opals, the latter slightly afterwards.1000x500_killer_bunny_new 1000x500_red_lantern_koshka_new sorrowblade_glaive_splashart02ringo_skin_se_splashart_final_cropped
