Overwatch Anniversary Event 2021 - Baptiste Skin, Release Date

Checkout the brand new retro look of the Overwatch healer.

Overwatch Anniversary event in 2021 celebrates the game’s release date five years after its launch back in 2016 with a brand new Legendary Overwatch Baptiste skin.

Since its first year of launch, Overwatch has been largely expanded in the case of content. The game was released with 21 playable heroes and it now has 32 characters available on the roster.

Over the five years, the developers introduced various new maps, limited-time modes, and a role-based matchmaking system. All the changes made Overwatch a better experience than before, and probably that’s the reason why the game still has a huge community of active players.

Despite all the controversies over the Overwatch loot boxes, Blizzard never removed these in-game random boxes from the game. You can still spend a lot of money on loot boxes that you don’t know what could deliver to you.

Probably the game’s large diversity of skins, sprays, and voice-lines have tempted many players to spend on loot boxes over all these five years. And that’s the reason why Blizzard brings in more unique and Legendary outfits every now and then for its beloved heroes.
