Overwatch Anniversary Skins From 2018 Event Look Pretty Great

Tracer, Brigitte, and more get new looks for Overwatch's second Anniversary
Blizzard's popular hero shooter Overwatch is celebrating its second birthday, and the developer is commemorating the milestone with the return of the Overwatch Anniversary event. The event is underway now on all platforms--PS4, Xbox One, and PC--and introduces a variety of new content to the game, but as always, the most exciting additions are all the new skins.
Blizzard has added 11 new Legendary skins to Overwatch, a number of which were revealed in the days leading up to the game's second anniversary event. We got early peeks at new looks for Tracer and Soldier 76, but Doomfist, McCree, and Overwatch's latest hero, Brigitte, are all also the recipients of new outfits. You can take a look at all of the new skins above.
The skins can be obtained in Anniversary Loot Boxes, which contain over 190 Anniversary event items, more than 60 of which are brand-new. Everyone who logs in during the Anniversary Event will receive one Anniversary Loot Box for free, which is guaranteed to contain at least one Legendary item. Additional Anniversary Loot Boxes can be earned by playing the game or purchased with real-world money.
In addition to the new skins, Blizzard has introduced a new free-for-all Deathmatch map called Petra. The developer has also made past seasonal brawls available to play again in Arcade for the duration of the Overwatch Anniversary Event.
The event runs from now until June 11.
