Overwatch's D.Va Has New Skin And Sprays, But You'll Have To Jump Through Some Hoops To Get Them
I play and watch to win.
To celebrate the launch of the new D.Va short, Blizzard is introducing a new skin, sprays, and a player icon for Overwatch players to unlock. However, these items aren't acquired through the traditional randomized loot box method, and instead ask players to dedicate time to watching Twitch streams as well as playing the game.
The event is called "D.Va's Nano Cola Challenge" and is available from now until September 10. If you want to get your hands on the two new D.Va sprays all you've got to do is win three games of Overwatch in Quick Play, Competitive, or Arcade. Those that rack up a total of six victories will get a player icon on top. If you're really good and manage to get a total of nine wins you'll be gifted with the Nano Cola D.Va skin.
On top of all that, Blizzard has partnered with a variety of Twitch streamers to give away more goodies. All you have to do to get these is watch specific streams for a select period of time. You can see the details for these streams on Blizzard's website and see the sprays below.
During Gamescom 2018, Blizzard released a D.Va short called "Shooting Star." In it, she deals with the trials and tribulations of being a celebrity and also having to protect her city from the Omnics. While D.Va is undoubtedly a capable hero, she struggles with taking on too much, and must come to accept that sometimes she needs to ask for help.
A new Overwatch map called Busan was also announced during the show and is currently in the public testing realm. Themed around D.Va, Busan, is a Control map set in South Korea. "Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, surrounded by an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture," Blizzard said. "Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station (just watch out for the train).
"Contest for position in MEKA Base--home of South Korea's frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks: D.Va and the rest of the MEKA squad," it continues. "Teams must fight to hold each of the three stages to establish complete control of the city that refuses to surrender its way of life to any threat."
In related news, the developers behind Diablo 3 on Switch recently discussed working with Nintendo's console, saying Overwatch on Switch is feasible.
