Overwatch Anniversary will bring in a host of new content, including more than 50 fresh cosmetic items and the newest Deathmatch map, Petra! He then promised great diversity in the map for both short-range heroes and snipers, which is great for all the Hanzo 2.0 mains out there. Petra will be the showcase for a Competitive Deathmatch playlist, while Chateau will also be in the rotation to mix things up. Without a doubt, this constant attention to details in the most recent patch and those before it have assisted in giving the game a solid reputation among fans, leading to its huge player base. The Overwatch free weekend will be running from May 25 through May 28.

The anniversary loot box comes with a guaranteed anniversary item and the opportunity to get any item from any of their previous seasonal events. Players logging during the event will receive a bonus Legendary loot box, guaranteeing one Legendary item.

Overwatch 's Anniversary Event begins May 22, and fans are hungry for every scoop they can get about 2018's Legendary Skins and other cosmetics they'll be able to earn during the celebration.
