Play more Heroes of the Storm to get some Overwatch goodies! Blizzard Entertainment

Overwatch players, listen up! Blizzard Entertainment would like to have your attention, all you 25 million plus players. In fact, the company would like Overwatch players to have a closer look at Heroes of the Storm. Just in case you were wondering what Heroes of the Storm is all about, this is Blizzard Entertainment’s cross-franchise action strategy game that has also amassed its fair share of fans over time. There is a brand new event known as Nexus Challenge 2.0 which will provide Overwatch players with an enticing new skin that is known as Officer D.Va assuming you get some Heroes of the Storm gaming time in with your family and/or friends.

The Officer D.Va skin can be said to be pretty special, as it re-imagines the young Overwatch pilot as a Korean cop. Not only that, you will also benefit from a police cruiser-themed makeover for her mech, now how about that for some more fun and variety? In addition, Overwatch players will be able to pick up additional icons as well as sprays based on Officer D.Va should they spend an adequate amount of time with Heroes of the Storm. Suddenly, splitting your game time between these two devices does seem to be a good idea. Why not make having a ‘balanced game diet’ your new mantra, and you can benefit from the new skin as well?

The Nexus Challenge 2.0 event will also provide Overwatch players with yet another chance to pick up the Oni Genji skin. The Oni Genji skin is pretty special, where it was made available only in the first Nexus Challenge in Heroes of the Storm which was held in November last year. If you missed out on it the first time around, it would be prudent to ensure that the same does not happen this time.

The entire duration for the Heroes of the Storm Nexus Challenge 2.0 event will be for four weeks. This ought to provide ample time for you to be able to explore and enjoy the game. Not only that, players will also have to show a certain level of dedication to the title -- playing a minimum of five games each week with a friend in quick match, ranked or unranked modes so that you will be able to pick up some exclusive loot along the way.

Nexus Challenge 2.0 offers the following :-

Week 1 - Oni Genji skin, icon and spray in Overwatch; Oni Genji portrait, spray, Orochi Hovercycle mount and banner in Heroes of the Storm
Week 2 - Officer D.Va skin in Overwatch; Busan Police Hovercycle mount in Heroes of the Storm
Week 3 - Officer D.Va icon and spray in Overwatch; Overwatch Nexagon mount and Officer D.Va portrait, spray and banner in Heroes of the Storm
Week 4 - 10 loot boxes for both Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm
