Overwatch anniversary event date and new Junkrat skin revealed

Overwatch wallpaper containing all the characters

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. New items include eight Legendary skins and three Epic skins, and additional dance emotes for Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte. As for the Legendary Edition, that'll be out next Tuesday and feature a mix of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins for a total of 15. This appears to be separate from Overwatch's existing Competitive Mode. Additionally, all previously released loot boxes for seasonal events are included for the anniversary event.

The event trailer also teased a new pirate skin for Junkrat. If you decide to buy the 50 Loot Box Bundle, you'll receive an additional Legendary Anniversary Loot Box for free.

Finally, Blizzard will offer yet another free weekend for Overwatch that runs May 25-28.


This means that skins from events such as Halloween, Summer Games, Winter Wonderland and Lunar New Year will all be made available again.

If you log in during the event, you'll get a Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, which will net you at least one guaranteed legendary item. The Brazilian Overwatch Twitter account accidentally leaked a video last night which reveals Blizzard's plans for the Anniversary event. 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.
