Overwatch's Limited-Time Baptiste Event Starts Today

Overwatch players recently got a chance to learn more about Baptiste through a short story, and today the company has revealed that we'll be able to earn a host of in-game goodies for the combat medic through a limited-time Baptiste Reunion Challenge. From today through July 1, players can earn a player icon, epic Battle Medic Baptiste skin, and a slew of sprays by winning matches in quick play, competitive, or arcade. 

In addition to the goods you can unlock by playing, you can earn more sprays by watching participating Twitch streamers in two-hour increments, topping off at six total hours.

If you're not into Baptiste (or even if you are, really), today also marks the release of Overwatch's new Replays feature on all platforms. Here, you can watch previous matches from a variety of different perspectives. It's a great way to gloat or critique your own performance, depending on how well you fared in any given game.
