“Torbjorn applies some brown hair dye, giving him a more youthful appearance as Zhang Fei Torbjorn. Zhang Fei Torbjorn is one of the oath brothers, though one that doesn’t feel like quite as much of a layup as Guan Yu Reinhardt. The final Hero’s skin so far is Zenyatta, with his Zhuge Liang skin, named for the Chinese politician and military strategist. Zhuge Liang Zenyatta’s skin is competed with a beard and distinctive hat,” reports Express.co.uk.
