Overwatch Anniversary Event: Everything we know

Overwatch Jeff Kaplan

Blizzard is celebrating an awesome first year for Overwatch, and is planning to launch an anniversary event on May 23.

"Overwatch" is celebrating its first year with a special anniversary event.

These four skins - for Bastion, Soldier 76, Pharah and Zarya - are very different from the event skins we've seen previously.

It's been nearly a year since Overwatch blasted its way onto PS4, Xbox One and PC, and it seems Blizzard Entertainment has more than a few plans to celebrate. Blizzard could finally be adding more maps for these modes, but a datamine from past year hinted that Arena will be an entirely new mode. The description of the new maps as Arena maps is also an interesting thing to note, as Blizzard has not widely used the term before.

In addition, Blizzard has also planned to hold another Free Weekend for the month of May.

Air traffic controllers to sit 80 miles from runway
The new 50-metre control tower now being built at the airport will host HD screens, instead of air traffic controllers. London City airport is to replace its current 30-year old control tower with a new digital version in 2019.

"We have some ideas", game director Jeff Kaplan said (via PvP Live). To really set Overwatch apart as its own IP. "So I think we would like to do it at some point".

What's unclear about these dance emotes is if they're exclusive to the One Year Anniversary Event, or if they will be a part of the new basic loot box items. Players will be able to play on these maps in various modes such as Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Weekly Brawl mode. "If your Anniversary Loot Box contains an item that is already in your collection, you will instead receive in-game Credits that you can use to acquire many customization options". They are happy to announce that there will be a GOTY edition of the video game, and there will be a free weekend event. In order to enjoy the Free Weekend, players will need a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership.

There is no information on the pricing of the four new Overwatch Anniversary skins.

There is still plenty of info yet to be revealed for the Overwatch Anniversary Event, so be sure to check back for future updates!
