EDIT: I have just downloaded this update, have yet to test anything.
OH! The Promised skins for those on the TPP or Kickstarter programs.
Don't hold your breath in being stunned with the pathetic skins you receive.....TPP get some lame dull Orange striping.

Also the designers Republic skins seem very washed out, as in something wrong in the reproduction [possibly same for TPP skins]
