Celebrate Overwatch's Two Year Anniversary Next Week

Overwatch Anniversary plans LEAKED... all event skins will return and Junkrat has a new pirate outfit

The event promises more than 50 new items, including 8 Legendary skins and 3 Epic skins that can be found in loot boxes.

As of next week, Overwatch will have been out for two years. It has become a huge hit for Blizzard, attracting over 35 million players. All previously released loot boxes (like the previously released cosmetics) will be available in the anniversary event. That also helps keep Overwatch relevant as Blizzard continues to promote its major esports project, the Overwatch League. This will guarantee at least one legendary item, the highest rarity in the game. In addition, you will also be able to access most past seasonal cosmetic items and brawls. Deathmatch is also getting a new "Competitive Mode" for the anniversary event, complete with placement matches, skill rating tiers, and leaderboards. Additionally, Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte are getting new dance emotes.

Welcome to the VB PC Gaming Community!

Everyone will get one of these boxes when first logging in to the event, but one will also come free for those who buy the 50 box bundle. That time to get your groove on in Overwatch. From May 25 to May 28, starting at 2 p.m. EDT, players will be able to download the game and dive right in. In regards to returning brawls, yes, Lucioball is included, as well as Overwatch Archives Uprising and Retribution PVE brawls.

And of course there will be a free weekend in there too.

On May 22, the day the event starts, a new version of Overwatch will be released digitally. PlayStation players will not need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play, either. As for the Legendary Edition, that'll be out next Tuesday and feature a mix of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins for a total of 15.
