Overwatch Celebrates Its Two-Year Anniversary This Month With New Content and Legendary Edition

Overwatch will be celebrating its 2-year anniversary from May 22 through June 11, and during that time you’ll be able to pick up a slew of new goodies, including 50 new cosmetic items, 8 Legendary skins, and 3 epic skins. There’s also a ton of funky fresh new dance emotes for Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte on offer. If none of that piques your interest, you’ll also be able to play on the new Deathmatch map Petra.

In addition to the new map and all the cosmetic fun, last year’s Anniversary event is coming back with all the seasonal cosmetics from last time around, including dance emotes, seasonal brawls for the Arcade with daily rotations and more, including what was playable in the Overwatch: Archives. The new Deathmatch map Petra will also include a brand-new Competitive Mode with placement matches, skill rating tiers, and leaderboards.

Blizzard is feeling pretty generous this time around, as every player who logs in to try the Anniversary event’s festivities out will get one bonus Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, which guarantees one Legendary item. Any players who grab the 50 Loot Box Bundle will get one bonus Legendary Anniversary Loot Box as well, all of which can include any Seasonal event loot included from the game’s history.

If all that weren’t enough, there’s a new version of Overwatch releasing digitally on May 22. The Legendary Edition will come with Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins — 15 total — with your purchase. Pricing information has yet to be announced just yet. 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. If you’re playing on PlayStation 4, you won’t even need a PlayStation Plus this time around.

It’s a good time to be an Overwatch fan, clearly.
