Blizzard's Badass Bonuses for Overwatch's Anniversary

Celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Overwatch starting May 22.

May 24, 2016, Blizzard turned up the jams (yes, we know Lucio came a little later) with the release of Overwatch featuring 12 heroes (and villains). In case you've been in a coma for the last few years, Overwatch is Blizzard Entertainment's team-based, multiplayer, first-person shooter. Players are placed on two teams of six where each player one of the following roles: Tank, Defense, Offense, and Support. Since its release, Overwatch has added 15 more playable heroes, bringing the total to 27 playable heroes. And I don't think they're done!

Since then, Overwatch has grown to include web comics and video shorts. Blizzard always goes all out for their anniversary events and Overwatch's 2nd anniversary will be no different. Here's what you can look forward to come May 22.

  • A brand spanking new free-for-all deathmatch called Petra.

  • Free-for-all COMPETITIVE deathmatch season starting on Petra and Chateau maps

  • Special 2nd Anniversary Lootbox: in addition to 2nd anniversary event loot, players will also have a chance to get loot from ANY past, seasonal event!

  • Unlock past unlockables, including re-releasing Overwatch Legendary Edition which includes sets of Legendary, Epic and Origin skins for a total of 15 skins.

  • Return of select fan-favorite brawls from past events

  • 8 Legendary skins

Oh! Did I forget to mention that Overwatch is free to play on the weekend of May 25-28? So you have a friend who STILL hasn't played Overwatch? Or are you someone who wants to test the game out before purchasing? Head on over to Play Overwatch on May 25-28.
