Overwatch’s One Year Anniversary is almost here and Blizzard revealed a seasonal event, a free weekend, and the announcement of Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition. A Seasonal Event titled “Anniversary Event” will be taking place on May 23rd. Unfortunately, Blizzard hasn’t shared any details on the event so players will have to be a bit patient until more details are announced. Below you can see a trailer in which looks at Overwatch’s first year in review.
Starting on May 26 and Ending on May 29 a free weekend will be taking place. For those that don’t know what a Free Weekend is, it means you could play the game for Free for a limited time without having to pay for the full game, should players choose to purchase Overwatch following the event, their progress will be transferred over. It’s available for PS4, PC and Xbox One.
On Tuesday May 23, a digital version of Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This edition will be filled with several goods:
• 10 Bonus Loot Boxes
• New hero skins, including Blackwatch Reyes and Strike-Commander Morrison skins. You can also explore origins of other heroes such as Overgrown Bastion, Security Chief Pharah, and Slipstream Tracer
Purchasing the Game of the Year edition will also grant you Overwatch-themed goodies in other Blizzard games, such as:
• Tracer in Heroes of the Storm
• Baby Winston Pet in World of Warcraft
• Mercy’s Wings in Diablo III
• In-game portraits of Tracer, Reaper, Pharah, Winston, Bastion, and Soldier: 76 in StarCraft II
• A Hearthstone Card
