Update: The Nexus Challenge is now live in the Americas and Europe! Team up with a friend and start unlocking rewards today! The Nexus Challenge will activate around the globe over the next couple of days as soon as this week's patch becomes available for download in each region.
Get five Heroes free when you play 30 games of Heroes of the Storm with a Friend before January 4. Bonus: Also includes the Oni Genji skin in Overwatch, which is available after you’ve played your first fifteen games with a friend. Here's how it works:
Your challenge, should you choose to accept, is to party up with one or more of your friends and play at least 15 Heroes of the Storm games in Co-op vs. AI, Quick Match, Unranked Draft, or Ranked modes between November 15* and January 4*.
Upon doing so, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with sweet in-game loot in both Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm. Better yet, those of you fancy yourselves over-achievers can continue your campaign through the Nexus by completing 30 games to add even more to your growing Heroes of the Storm collections.
Additionally, those of you who primarily play Overwatch on console can link your Xbox Live® or Playstation Network® account to your Battle.net® account in order to ensure that you'll properly receive your in-game Overwatch rewards on Playstation 4 or XBox 1 after completing the Nexus Challenge. Click here for instructions on how to link your accounts.
*Exact start and end dates may vary slightly by region.
