Overwatch Anniversary Kicks Off Next Week
Cavalry's still here, and that's worth celebrating.
Overwatch is celebrating its three year anniversary event this month, with a special seasonal event that pays homage to the game's history. The event begins on May 21 and goes on through June 10 and during it players will be able to collect new cosmetics, participate in special events, and more.
The star of any Overwatch event are the new skins, and this anniversary event will be no different. It will debut six new legendary skins and three epic skins, as well as new dances for the three most recent characters: Baptiste, Ashe, and Wrecking Ball.
Seasonal brawls will be coming to the Arcade, and they'll be rotated daily. Those include the Overwatch Archives - Storm Rising brawls.
During the duration of the event, logging in will get you one bonus Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, which guarantees one Legendary item. If you purchase a 50 Loot Box bundle, you'll get an extra Legendary Anniversary Loot Box as well. Previous seasonal event loots will also be included in loot boxes during the anniversary event.
To kick off the event, Blizzard is offering a free trial from May 21-May 28. It will be debuting new cosmetics throughout that week as well. You can start pre-loading the trial on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One now, to be prepared for the free period. The Anniversary event lasts through June 10.
