Subuniverse <Nexus-altered Earth>


New fates and adaptions in the Nexus, based on Earth of the Overwatch Universe.

This subuniverse is a part of Overwatch, and contains:

Event Connections <Nexus-altered Earth>

Throughout the year, Events happen every now and then. Most of them are a one-time thing, some are annual - but all of these are connected to this Subuniverse.

Entities <Nexus-altered Earth>

These are the underlying entities in this subuniverse, either dragged into the Nexus, just like our Heroes, or already present there.

Athena - available as an Announcer

Overwatch sentient announcer.

Skins <Nexus-altered Earth>

These are the Skins that are based upon this Subuniverse, reflecting alternate versions of our Heroes.

  • High Gravity Zarya - Epic
    • The Tobelstein Reactor is an emergent technology, and its full potential has yet to be tapped. Rumor has it that the Gravitic Harness is the next great advancement in energy projection.
  • Oni Genji - Rare - provided from Nexus Challenge 2.0
    • It is said that an oni with an iron club is invincible. But that's nothing compared to an oni with a katana.
  • Pro D.Va - Epic
    • Being a pro has its perks: sponsorship deals, an adoring fan base, customized polyfusion sequencers for your personal mecha... you know, little things.
  • Ribbit LĂșcio - Rare
    • Hip. Hop.
  • Sakura Auriel - Epic - provided from Nexus Challenge 2.0
    • For centuries, viewing cherry blossoms at the start of spring has been a time-honored tradition. Auriel was the first omnic to join in the festivities, and has done so every year since she started.
  • Soundblast LĂșcio - Rare
    • Vishkar's sonic technology was a good starting point, but the pursuit of perfection in sound quality demands keeping up to date with the latest in audio equipment.
  • Steel Dragon Genji - Rare - provided from Nexus Challenge 2.0
    • Though he used to struggle with being part man and part machine, Genji has since come to terms with his dual nature. Improving his body along with his spirit was the obvious next step.
  • Turbo Tracer - Rare
    • Tracer's teleporting fighter, the Slipstream, disappeared during its initial test flight. The unexpected discovery of its engine within the Nexus has allowed her to significantly bolster her weaponry.
  • Widowmaker Nova - Epic
    • Once, she once led a normal life... But now, after intense neural reconditioning, she is one of the most effective assassins still alive. Oh, and this skin makes her look like Widowmaker.
