Overwatch is ready to celebrate 3 years since release with its 3rd Anniversary event running from May 21 through June 10.
The 2019 Anniversary celebration will include 6 new legendary skins and 3 epic skins (although we don’t know for which Heroes yet), along with new dance emotes for Baptiste, Ashe, and Wrecking Ball.
In addition, all seasonal cosmetics from previous events will become available again during the Anniversary celebrations. The same goes for past seasonal brawls, which will be rotating daily in the game’s Arcade mode.
Every player who logs in during next week’s event will receive a free Anniversary Loot Box that’s guaranteed to contain one legendary item. You can also earn yourself a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box if you purchase the 50 Loot Box Bundle.
As an additional celebratory bonus, a free trial period will coincide with the first week of the event for those who want to try Overwatch out for the first time. From May 21 through 28 the full game will be playable without charge, and pre-loading is already available for console gamers.
Since Overwatch first launched in 2016 it has received copious critical acclaim, including Game of the Year in 2016. Most recently, the game has seen the addition of a new escort map and a new custom game editor entitled Overwatch Workshop. While still only in a sort of beta-test state on the game’s PTR (Public Test Realm), PC players have already come up with some ingenious creations.
Be sure to stick with Twinfinite for the latest on the new cosmetics, emotes, and more coming to the Anniversary Event soon.
Overwatch is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One
