Play games with friends during Heroes of the Storm‘s Nexus challenge to get free heroes, and an exclusive Overwatch skin.


Blizzard has just announced its biggest Heroes of The Storm giveaway yet: the Nexus Challenge. Up for grabs are five free heroes, an in-game mount, and an exclusive Overwatch Genji skin. To get that phat loot, all you have to do is play the game with a friend between November 15 and January 4!

If you play 15 games with a friend during the Nexus Challenge period in Co-op vs. AI, Quick Match, Unranked Draft, or Ranked mode, you’ll get the following rewards:


  • Oni Genji Skin
  • Oni Genji Portrait
  • Oni Genji Spray

Heroes of The Storm:

  • Zarya Hero
  • Oni Genji Portrait


If you play 30 games, you’ll get some additional rewards:

Heroes of The Storm:

  • Auriel Hero
  • Greymane Hero
  • Kerrigan Hero
  • Li-Ming Hero
  • Orochi Hovercycle Mount
  • 30 Day Stimpack

It’s a pretty big bounty of heroes and cosmetics that you can get simply from playing the game. Blizzard did not state if players who already own all of the reward content will get any additional rewards, but in the past they have made accommodations for such players.
