Overwatch Anniversary Event Adds New Skins, Map, And Brings Back Brawls

A number of items from previous celebrations will return, including dance emotes from last year's anniversary, with several seasonal brawls coming back to the Arcade. You can also access over 50 new cosmetic items, including eight legendary skins and three new epic skins, and new dance emotes.

Last year's anniversary event introduced over 100 new cosmetic items but this year, it appears we'll have a chance to pick up old items we may have missed as the promo video says all event items will return. This version is called the Legendary Edition and will include Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins with 15 skins in total. The new Deathmatch map Petra will also include a brand-new Competitive Mode with placement matches, skill rating tiers, and leaderboards.

Blizzard has yet to officially announce anything, but it seems that the Overwatch Twitter page in Brazil accidentally published a 20-second trailer confirming the upcoming event. If you decide to buy the 50 Loot Box Bundle, you'll receive an additional Legendary Anniversary Loot Box for free.


It has been a couple of years since Overwatch was launched, and in the first year we saw Blizzard celebrate the game's first anniversary with a special in-game event.

To cap it off, Blizzard will be offering a free weekend in the game from May 25-29.

The anniversary event also adds new 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.
