After the Lunar New Year event, Overwatch is now ready for a smaller, character-centric challenge. Just in, we have a new trailer for Reaper’s Code of Violence Challenge.
Check it out:
Here’s the official description:
He’s leaving his past behind and readying up for his day of reckoning: Reaper’s Code of Violence Challenge is here. Now through March 8, play games to earn exclusive rewards, including a player icon, sprays, and the Legendary Dusk Reaper skin. Plus, read the latest Overwatch short story: “Code of Violence.”
Though Reaper may be the main character of the challenge, players still have a chance to unlock other freebies that center on other Overwatch characters—and since this is a Reaper challenge, those characters are part of the ‘evil’ faction of Overwatch, Talon.
This small challenge should keep fans playing for a good few weeks before Overwatch’s next event which is the return of Overwatch Archives. The game has admittedly been kind of lax when it comes to new cosmetics, but seeing all the drama that Blizzard has undergone in the past few months, it’s kind of a miracle that we’re getting new things at all.
Hopefully when Archives kicks in later this March, we’ll have some more iconic skins (plus new highlights and emotes) to fight over.
Reaper’s Code of Violence runs from Feb. 22–March 8. Overwatch is now playable for Xbox One, PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
