October 20th, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. by Philipp Sattler – As the leaks suggested a few days ago, Blizzard has now announced an official collaboration with the fast food giant McDonald’s. You can attack an epic hero skin – if you happen to live in Australia.
So the leaks of the past few days have come true. The game developer Blizzard is actually starting a cooperation with the fast food chain McDonald’s. Everything revolves around the new hero shooter Overwatch 2. As part of the collaboration, codes for an epic hero skin are waiting in special McMenus.
This is the Oiled Lightning skin for the heroine Tracer. However, there are two very big catches. On the one hand, you only get the code if you order the menu via the special McDonald’s app “MyMacca’s”. On the other hand, the offer is currently limited to Australia. Unfortunately, Overwatch fans in Germany are left empty-handed.

Only the beginning of the cooperation?
This naturally raises the question of whether this is just the beginning of a collaboration. Many fans around the world would certainly wish to be able to get this skin in their home country. However, this is currently not the case, although the skin is described within the game as “Sometimes available in the shop”.

On the other hand, such a cooperation is also suitable for other games from Blizzard. Whether it’s pets in WoW, card packs in Hearthstone, outfits in Diablo – many different goodies could be accommodated in the menus.
Since the McDonald’s app cannot yet be linked to the Battle.net account, you get a classic code to redeem. The question arises as to when the first of these codes will appear on Ebay and similar platforms and will be bought expensively by players from the other region.
It remains to be seen whether McDonald’s is the best partner for Blizzard in terms of image. However, as is well known, the reputation of the Californian game developer is not particularly good. It doesn’t matter whether you like such campaigns or not, we think: if so, then please also for all players.
