Blizzard’s MOBA offering Heroes of the Storm is getting a new 1920s-themed event, The Scarlet Heist.

Teased over Twitter by way of a single image, the upcoming event will include new skins for playable characters Junkrat, Sft. Hammer, Orphea, and Whitemane. And, strangely, the silhouette of what looks like either a racoon or a dinosaur. We’ll likely hear more details about the new additions later this week.

The new content comes almost a year after Blizzard announced its plans to restructure the game’s development team. Blizzard had previously revealed it would not be bringing back its Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm series esports series.

“Despite the change, Heroes of the Storm remains our love letter to Blizzard’s worlds and characters,” Blizzard said at the time. “We’ll continue actively supporting the game with new heroes, themed events, and other content that our community loves, though the cadence will change. Ultimately, we’re setting up the game for long-term sustainability.”
