Blizzard had announced today that they have plans to go around the country and give every fan a chance to be a hero during the ‘Overwatch Payload Tour’ offering exclusive merch and photo ops. The announcement on Blizzard’s page reads:
The Overwatch Payload Tour will be setting out on a nationwide journey to some of your favorite events, celebrating everything Overwatch along the way—especially the amazing cosplay. Group up with us April 5–8 for the Payload Tour’s first stop: PAX East in North Lobby 5. We’ll have a one-of-a-kind photo experience to perfectly capture your inner hero, along with some never-before-seen Overwatch cosplay.
Not a cosplayer? No problem. We’ll have a selection of iconic Overwatch weapons on hand, so you can gear up and get your photo taken in a 360-degree panoramic stage in the center of some of your favorite Overwatch maps.
Don’t leave empty handed! Every participant will receive an exclusive Overwatch pin. Each event will have its own unique pin, so be sure to visit us during the Payload Tour.
After the show floor closes on April 5, you can also group up with us for an Overwatch League Viewing Party at The Greatest Bar in Boston—just 12 minutes from PAX East. Stop by to cheer on your favorite Overwatch League team alongside other passionate fans, and you could walk away with Overwatch-themed goodies from one of our many giveaways throughout the night!
The tour will start in Boston for PAX East and make it’s way back to California for E3, Anime Expo, and San Diego Comic Con. Other stops include Dragon Con in Georgia and New York Comic Con.
