Former Overwatch League champion and 2019’s Most Valuable Player, Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won revealed the release window for his upcoming MVP skin while queuing with his ex-teammate Matthew ‘Super’ DeLisi.

The 20-year-old DPS prodigy, who recently retired from Overwatch to go pro in Valorant, was preparing to defend King’s Row when a player on his team asked about his new skin.

“Yo Sinatraa, just out of curiosity, do you even know what the MVP skin is going to be for you or is it all a surprise?” the player wondered.

Sinatraa dominated OWL in 2019, leading the Shock to championship glory.

“I’ll see it soon,” he replied. “But I think it’s coming out in like two or three weeks or something.”

This news seemed to even catch Super by surprise. “Wait, two to three weeks?” he questioned, but was met with reassurance from Won, confident that fans will get their hands on it soon or “something like that.”

The Overwatch League has honored its MVPs and League champions with unique limited-time skins. The first season saw Sung-hyeon ‘JJoNak’ Bang named MVP for his standout Zenyatta play, while the London Spitfire and San Francisco Shock had Winston and Doomfit skins skin designed for their championship victories.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jon Spector, Vice President of Overwatch esports, made it clear that even though Sinatraa had retired and move to Valorant to play for the Sentinels, the skin was still coming.

“This skin is something we know he, along with our fans and players, has been looking forward to, so we will release it as planned in the next few months. It’s an awesome skin and we can’t wait to share it with everyone,” he wrote back on May 1 in a post on Reddit.

Sinatraa previously revealed his skin would be for Zarya.

With the Overwatch League on a three-week break and set to return on June 13, it’s looking like the new skin will be unveiled upon its return.

Additionally, with OWL Token Drops finally back, this would be an opportune time to get more casual fans invested by having them want to earn tokens to unlock the special skin.

As for which hero Sinatraa’s MVP skin will be for, the star leaked that information way back in September, 2019 when he revealed it would be for Zarya – a hero he dominated on during the GOATs meta that plagued most of the league’s second season.

Until then, better stock up on OWL tokens and it doesn’t seem like we have that much longer to wait until the skin releases.

Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
