Overwatch Counts Down to Anniversary Event with Skin Reveals

Overwatch Counts Down to Anniversary Event with Skin Reveals

Soldier:76 received a legendary skin in the game's first version of the Anniversary event, and his new skin is an epic skin.

Game director Jeff Kaplan made the announcement via a video last night, outlining some of the plans for this year's anniversary.

In addition to marking the two-year anniversary of the game, it seems Blizzard also has another reason to celebrate, as Kaplan revealed that Overwatch has now passed 40 million players. Logging on during the event for the first time will also get you one Legendary lootbox which means you're guaranteed at least one legendary item (please let it be that awesome 1980s Zarya skin that I missed out on previous year!).

The film, by Spike Lee, stars Corey Hawkins and Topher Grace and takes on the checkered history of the Ku Klux Klan. Cannes is renowned for attracting the world's most handsome people for a week of breathtaking red carpet moments.

Overall, the Anniversary 2018 event for Overwatch sounds like it is shaping up to be one of the biggest seasonal events in the game to date.

The celebration begins May 22! Up until now, the only details known about the map were that it would be a Deathmatch option and would be called Petra, but Kaplan shared a bit more info on the map while hinting at some sort of massive healthpack in the area's center among other gameplay features. For example, there is a mega health pack in the very center of the map in an area that becomes increasingly unsafe as the match goes on. The Overwatch free weekend will be running from May 25 through May 28. Namely, he mentioned that a certain dapper gentleman will be getting a legendary skin that has been widely requested by the community.
