Overwatch: Ashe’s Mardi Gras Challenge Now Live (VIDEO)
Nearly four years after the initial release of Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment has decided to finally bring a Mardi Gras event to the popular first person shooter. That’s right, Ashe’s Mardi Gras Challenge is in full swing, but players will only have a limited time to snatch up all of the new loot.
Blizzard recently revealed and launched the new Overwatch Mardi Gras event, which will be live for the next couple of weeks. While players may be accustomed to new game modes tagging along with events, that is not the case this time around. Instead, there is a handful of items that players will be able to get their hands on simply by playing the game.
As can be seen in the video about, Ashe’s Mardi Gras Challenge is currently live and will be available until March 9th. During this time, Overwatch players will be able to obtain new icons, sprays, and Epic skins for Ashe and Bob. Here’s how you can earn the new items:
