New skins - anniversary
Orca, Shin Jia, Lyudmila, Awakened Hilde, Awakened Yoo Mina, and John Mason are getting special anniversary skins! Here's an image with all of them:
New Battle Pass - Horizon
Horizon is a mecha character that has a berserk state, similar to Alex. Her knockback allows her to easily control the battlefield and keep the enemies away from her - which is good because her stats aren't that great compared to other tanks. At least in her non-berserk form.
Her knockbacks work a bit different from other employees too. The distance the enemies are pushed away from her is far bigger than similar skills used by other employees. This combined with her special skill, allows her to push the whole enemy team to their ship in mere seconds.
It's worth noticing that she's not as tanky as other defenders, even with the 5% MDL she gains in her berserk state. Also if the enemy has barrier or buff removers and her barrier gets eaten, she's a sitting duck and dies easily. Still, in most cases, it won't matter because usually she already did her job by pushing enemies back which should earn you an easy victory in PVP.
Horizon is also quite good in PVE where she gives Overflow a run for his money, especially in full mecha teams that recently became popular in Shadow Palace 5.
Is she worth getting? Yes.
New Operator - Rachel Dodds
Rachel is a pretty niche operator that works only with certain comps, but even then the buff she provides isn't that good. This makes her not a popular pick.
Is she worth pulling? Not really.
