One of the best things about Overwatch is its fun events and rewards, and the most recently announced event is no different. Bastion’s Brick Challenge is a charming, two-week mini-event perfect for holding fans over until the madness surrounding the Halloween event and festivities.
Much like other character-inspired events, like Ana’s Bastet event and Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge, players can win rewards and the adorable Lego-inspired Bastion skin through games of quick play, competitive, or arcade mode. For every three wins, players will be awarded with loot-boxes. The first of three victories gifts Overwatch players with a Lego Bastion and Lego Ganymede player icons. The second round of three victories will gift players with sprays of Lego Mercy and Pharah. Last but not least, after nine victories, this legendary Brick Skin is all yours!
Genji, D.Va, and Hanzo also have sprays featuring the popular building blocks. Tracer and Widowmaker have blocky player icons. However, these Overwatch rewards are earned a little differently. Players with their Battle.net accounts connected to their Twitch account can earn drops by watching their favorite streamers. One spray is released after two hours, two players icons after four hours, and the final two sprays are released after six hours.
Bastion’s Brick Challenge is running in Overwatch from September 17th, 2019 to September 30th, 2019. And the holiday events are set to begin soon after!
In other Overwatch news, the game is getting a Nintendo Switch port, which will release on October 15th.
