The studio has yet to unveil the full details of the skin packs accompanying these new characters. A teaser trailer accompanying the announcement provided a glimpse into what’s to come, reenacting the iconic opening scene from Avatar: The Last Airbender where Katara discovers Aang and his flying bison Appa encased in an iceberg. The trailer then transitions into action-packed snippets featuring the three newly added characters.
