Yesterday, Blizzard released the first part of a new, five-issue Overwatch digital comic mini-series, London Calling, that follows Tracer’s life in London after the Omnic crisis and the disbanding of Overwatch. Today it kicked off an in-game tie-in event called Tracer’s Comic Challenge that gives players two weeks to earn limited-time rewards including an icon, sprays with voice lines, and a new epic skin.
Notching up three wins in Quick Play, Competitive, or the Arcade will earn you the new player icon, while hitting six will get you a spray. The big reward—the Comic Book Tracer epic skin—comes in at nine wins. More sprays can be earned by watching streamers playing Overwatch on Twitch: Two hours (cumulative) for one spray, four hours for two, and six hours for three.
