There’s a party going on, and you’re invited! Overwatch is celebrating its 3rd birthday with the return of its popular Anniversary Event.
Every 1-2 months a new limited time event rolls around bringing seasonal skins, emotes, map changes and game modes for a short period of time. The Anniversary Event is one of the biggest, as it rolls all of the year’s past events into one giant celebration! The festivities last from today through June 10, and includes a free gift for everyone who simply logs in.
To celebrate, Overwatch Game of the Year Edition for PC is currently discounted in our webstore. Take advantage of this deal and the limited time event while they last!
Celebrate Overwatch’s Birthday with Every Special Event at Once!
Like other Blizzard titles, Overwatch receives consistent updates to keep it fresh, entertaining and balanced. Special events like the Halloween, Summer Games, or Lunar New Year celebration are available for a limited time a few times per year. During the current Anniversary event, all seasonal cosmetics from previous events become available again, making this the best time of year to grab exclusive loot and enjoy unique changes to the game.
New Loot and One Free Legendary Item for Everyone
Beginning today, you can get your hands on 6 new legendary skins, 3 epic skins, and new dance emotes for Baptiste, Ashe, and Wrecking Ball. Every player who logs in during the event will receive a free Loot Box guaranteed to have one at least one legendary item inside. These special Anniversary goodies are only available during the event; after that, they’re unavailable until next year.
New to Overwatch?
Overwatch is a competitive, 6v6 first-person shooter. The game has its own special backstory, fun aesthetic, and unique “Heroes” to do battle with. Each Hero has special skills and abilities that can become even more powerful when working together as a team.
Overwatch adds new heroes to its roster every few months. In addition, there is a steady stream of monthly updates, special events, and cosmetic upgrades from legendary developer Blizzard. The most recent hero to join the fight is Baptiste, a combat medic who wields a powerful Biotic Launcher and can deploy a lifesaving Immortality Field.
