Cheers love, the Maccies is here.

Blizzard is offering a skin to McDonalds customers in Australia and New Zealand at the moment. I can't say it's a pairing that I would have instantly thought of, especially as a region-exclusive item but hey, I'm sure Tracer loves a Chicken Select as much as I do at 2 am. We're basically soul sisters. 

The offer is currently only available via the MyMacca's app, in the form of a promotion where if you buy a Big Mac, McChicken, or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets combo, you can get an epic rarity skin for Tracer in Overwatch 2. IGN's report confirms my memory isn't failing me: this is an old Overwatch skin being reused for the promotion. It's still available in-game if you want to purchase it, but the only way you can get it free, now loot boxes are gone, is through this promotion.

From the website it looks like the offer is being made in Australia and New Zealand specifically because of a long-time partnership with Overwatch esports in that region. To earn the Tracer skin, after purchasing one of the combos listed above, customers will be sent a unique code within 48 hours which they can then redeem in the account management page. If you already own this skin, tough luck! You can't redeem the code for currency or anything else. 

This looks to be the beginning of a longer collaboration between Overwatch and McDonalds. As TheGamer reports, there are an increasing number of people taking pictures of McDonalds bags in Australia with the Overwatch 2 logo on them. These bags also feature heroes such as Lucio, Reinhardt, and Tracer. Will Australia be getting Overwatch toys in happy meals? If so, I want one. Somebody down under send me one in the post, please?
