Overwatch Anniversary Event Adds New Skins and Map

Overwatch Anniversary event 2018

As is tradition with seasonal items, all of last year's Anniversary items will most likely also be available to purchase with coins for at the normal, non-event price. New items include eight Legendary skins and three Epic skins, and additional dance emotes for Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte.

If this leaked trailer is true we can expect the Overwatch Anniversary event to begin May 22nd and like previous events include last year's cosmetics along with new items. This year, deathmatch will also feature a competitive variant with placement matches and skill rating. The video shows Junkrat and Roadhog dancing as their skins change which we assume would be the upcoming skins that will be released during the event. These seasonal events keep players engaged and encourage them to buy more loot boxes, which keeps Overwatch profitable for Blizzard long after its debut. This version of the game-which will only be sold digitally-includes the base game and 15 skins total, comprised of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins. If you want to get into Overwatch withot spending a time this month, however, you can jump in to try the Anniversary event out from May 25 through May 28 for a Free Weekend on all platforms. Some of these loot boxes will also be given out for free as well, one for everyone who plays during the event and another if you're willing to spend enough of your own money on the loot boxes. Blizzard confirmed that PS4 players do not need a PlayStation Plus membership to take part, though it's unclear if Xbox Live Gold is required on Xbox One.
