Overwatch fans can claim a legendary Reinhardt skin, otherwise known as "Raynhardt" in the upcoming Blizzard Convention. This year in particular celebrates Blizzard Entertainment's 30th anniversary, and Blizzard will be giving attendees special items available only during this convention. A BlizzConline trailer premiered on Feb. 1, 2021, with many teasers hinting at upcoming content.

With the upcoming Year of the Ox events happening at Overwatch, fans were not expecting any announcements until the reveal of the Jim Raynor-inspired skin. This is not the first time the two franchises have overlapped, however, with Widowmaker having a Kerrigan-inspired skin. That said, "Raynhardt" will be joining Illidan Genji, Tyrande Symmetra, BlizzCon Bastion, BlizzCon Winston and Demon Hunter Sombra as a limited-edition cosmetic.

In one of the tweets showing a preview of the new limited edition skin, there was a link to the official BlizzCon website. When clicking on that link, on the top-right corner there should be a button that says "Celebration Collection Learn More."

That leads players to Blizzard Entertainment's shop, where the website shows the different "The Celebration Collection" bundles tiers. The Raynhardt legendary skin will only be available to anyone that purchases either the "Heroic Pack" or the "Epic Pack." The "Heroic Pack," is at a price of $39.99, while the "Epic Pack" costs $59.99 as of the writing of this article.

However, the skin will not be playable immediately after the purchase. In-game items will be in-game "no later than February 28, 2021" according to the product details.
