Overwatch 2: the collaboration with McDonald's recycles the ugliest skin ever

Overwatch 2

And in the end it happened. The rumors about it were true, as was the intuition on the McDonald's Australia teaser. The famous fast food chain has really struck a deal with Blizzard regarding Overwatch 2. An agreement that not only gave away a skin for Tracer already in the game (and therefore creating a collaboration that does not add anything new to the game ), but it is probably even the ugliest of those currently available for the character, at least according to the latest opinions of the community: we are talking about Tracer Lightning.

Let's go with order: the collaboration between McDonald's and Blizzard at the moment is limited to the Australian market only. In order to receive the Tracer Lightning skin within Overwatch 2, you must purchase a Big Mac menu, a McChicken menu or a 10-piece box of Chicken McNuggets in a menu version (with drink and chips). However, you don't have to go to the store: every lunch of this kind must be ordered from the Australian app, called MyMacca.

The biggest problem, of course, is not promotion: for some time, video games have intertwined relationships with reality. which have almost nothing to do with industry. The problem arises precisely from the fact that a skin that is probably among the worst available for the character has been substantially recycled, and this is linked to the criticism of the community on the skins that can be obtained with the game pass in free version, which are not just the best. In short, it seems that Blizzard and McDonald's are playing a little more on the classic "FOMO" (Fear of Missing Out, the fear of being cut off from social events or phenomena). Perfectly legitimate: no one is forcing someone to have lunch at McDonald's.
