Overwatch anniversary event date and new Junkrat skin revealed

Overwatch anniversary event date and new Junkrat skin revealed

Only the new pirate-themed Junkrat skin from the trailer has been confirmed and, given the nature of the event, the rest will be similarly random in nature. They're going to be releasing a new Deathmatch map, Petra, along with over 50 new cosmetic items for players to collect. It is the game's second anniversary, which means Overwatch Anniversary 2018 will run from May 22 until June 11, 2018. Oh, and a "Legendary Edition" is coming on May 22 with "Legendary, Epic and Origin skins for a total of 15 skins with purchase".

Those new cosmetic items include every character's dance emote, which will also be available once again.

The Overwatch Brazil Twitter account leaked the Anniversary 2018 announcement earlier this week.


Legendary Anniversary loot boxes will also be available, which guarantee one, non-duplicate item of the aforementioned class.

And of course there will be a free weekend in there too.

A special loot box will appear during this period. Plus, Blizzard said all previous seasonal event cosmetics, including dance emotes, will be included in loot boxes during the anniversary event.

If you've missed out on Overwatch over the past two years, a free weekend will be taking place a few days after the latest event gets underway. Anyone who buys the 50 loot box bundle will also receive a bonus legendary loot box. If you're playing on PlayStation 4, you won't even need a PlayStation Plus this time around. All progress will be retains, including event items, if you choose to purchase the game. However, fans of the game were quick enough to rip the video and distributed it all over the Internet.
