I’ve never played Heroes of the Storm. This week, I learned that I will have to play Heroes of the Storm. Good thing it’s free.
Why? Well, I’m still nuts for Overwatch, and one of my main heroes is D.Va. She’s got a skin that I’ll only be able to get through Heroes of the Storm for the foreseeable future. Much like the Oni Genji skin (which is available through quests again), Overwatch fans can play some HotS on PC under certain conditions to earn in-game rewards for Overwatch.
Look at her. Officer D.Va. Amazing.
What do you have to do to get the rewards?
The pile of rewards is actually pretty stellar, though it will require playing Heroes of the Storm with a friend over a span of time. Here’s the breakdown.
