After last year’s one-year anniversary in-game event which saw the addition of new emotes, skins, and more, many fans have been speculating about what Blizzard has planned for this year’s event. Well, today Blizzard started putting those rumors to rest as they have officially released the first details about Overwatch Anniversary 2018. 

Starting on May 22, 2018, players will be able to obtain all previously released Brawl modes and seasonal cosmetic items, meaning if you wanted to earn the Halloween or Christmas versions of characters, you’ll once again be able to do so.

In addition to that, a ton of new content will be added to the game, including a brand new Deathmatch map called Petra, as well as new skins for all characters, and dancing emotes for Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitee.

Finally, the famed developer also announced that they will be running a free weekend from May 25, 2018 to May 29, 2018, and that starting the day of the event a brand new edition of the game will be hitting digital stores. Titled the Legendary Edition, it’ll come with the base game, of course, as well as 15 extra skins, all which will be a variety of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins.

Overwatch was released in 2016 and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. if you want to pick up the game on Amazon, you can do so by clicking here.
