Free Skin for Widowmaker Just by Logging In
Blizzard is currently celebrating StarCraft‘s 20th Anniversary and are giving away several goodies to fans. For Overwatch, they are releasing a new Legendary Kerrigan (pre-Zerg infestation) skin for Widowmaker. Unlike other event skins however, this one does not require credits for purchase. In fact is is available completely for free. The only caveat being a time limit, which ends on April 3.
This is a different skin from the previously released Nova skin for Widow Maker from the Blizzard World launch. The Nova skin will remain available indefinitely but it costs thousands of in-game credits to purchase. However, they have similar designs but with just a palette swap.
This skin comes from Berlin-based Airborn Studios, who has made several popular skins for Overwatch and other games before. This includes the latest set of Lunar New Year and Blizzard World skins for Overwatch.

They are also giving away some extras for Diablo 3, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft 2, Starcraft: Remastered and World of Warcraft.
