Overwatch Gets A New Legendary Edition That Comes With 15 Skins
What better way to get started than a batch of skins?
Alongside news of plans to celebrate Overwatch's second anniversary in-game, Blizzard has also announced that a new version of its hero shooter is on the way. Here's what we know about Overwatch: Legendary Edition.
The Legendary Edition launches on May 22, the same day the new Anniversary event begins. It's only being released digitally, so you won't find it in stores. It comes with the base game and 15 skins, which were not specified. Blizzard only says it includes "sets of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins."
This package seems intended for those who have not yet picked up the game, rather than die-hard fans eager to put a fancy box on their shelf. If you're unsure whether you want to finally take the plunge, Blizzard also plans to host another free weekend event on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This will run May 25-28 and offer access to most of the game, save for Competitive mode.
That period overlaps with the Anniversary event, which will introduce new skins and cosmetics, bring back old Brawl modes, and add a new map. In the meantime, it's not too late to buy the new pink Mercy skin, which costs $15 but sees the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
