All-Star 2015 Finishers

While they are NOT AVAILABLE TO TEST NATURALLY ON THE PBE YET, here is a quick video showing off the All Star Fire and Ice Finishers that were added to the PBE. No details on availability or anything.

We first saw finishers, special effects that play when killing an enemy, during 2015's URF event.
