Oh, to ditch Overwatch‘s crude gunfights for a night at the opera. To push culture, not payloads. Capture hearts and souls, not control points. Ah, well, the latest challenge event for Blizzard’s hero shooter may not be choosing up a fiddle something quickly, however it’s going to allow you to fake you’re the type of one that frequents the live performance corridor with Sigma’s Maestro Challenge – dressing up Overwatch’s gravity-defying egghead for orchestral bombast
I’m unsure what a part of Sigma’s (somewhat iffy) backstory as a bog-standard “mad scientist” qualifies him as a composer – but when it means he will get to don a pleasant swimsuit and shoulder pads product of cellos, nicely, who am I to cease him?
Sigma’s Maestro follows the release of Overwatch: Cities And Countries, an album of bops taken from throughout the game’s maps. Staff newsie Imogen was proper when, in masking that launch, she assumed that “it’ll likely be that thing again where if you win nine matches you’re rewarded with a cool skin for the character the event’s focusing on,” akin to earlier occasions like Mercy’s Recall Challenge.
That is, in truth, precisely the way it works. Win 9 games, and also you’ll get the Maestro Sigma pores and skin, masking the flying dutchman in violin elements wrapped round a tuxedo. Classy?
There are a couple of goodies to snag in your option to that pores and skin, thoughts. Three wins will internet you a participant icon, after all, whereas six will land you with a Maestro emote – one the place your man conducts an orchestra of gravitationally-displaced pebbles. As per earlier occasions, there are additionally some sprays up for grabs if you happen to tune in to pick streamers for two, four and 6 hours. You’ll want to attach your Twitch account to your Blizzard one, thoughts, and an inventory of collaborating streamers may be discovered by way of the event page.
Sigma’s Maestro problem kicked off right this moment and runs by way of to Monday, July 27th. And sure, Sigma’s new pores and skin isn’t bare-footed. I checked.
