Blizzard Continues Teasing Overwatch Anniversary Event

It's been nearly a year since Overwatch blasted its way onto PS4, Xbox One and PC, and it seems Blizzard Entertainment has more than a few plans to celebrate. More details about Overwatch Anniversary are expected in the coming weeks.

After showing off three new maps that are part of the event next week, Blizzard also teased some new skins, emotes, and voice lines across separate regional Overwatch social accounts.

While it would be unusual to launch a sequel just a year and a half after the original Overwatch, Blizzard and Activision have shown lately they're open to producing sequels to other continually-developed games, like Destiny 2 and the recent Heroes of the Storm 2.0 huge update. However, the last Overwatch: Uprising event saw almost every skin set at 3,000 coins.

"They take a long time", Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan told Polygon.

"For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of heroes and maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl", reads a Blizzard post. The fans will be able to also keep the progress if they will buy the game after the Free Weekend. To really set Overwatch apart as its own IP. In order to enjoy the Free Weekend, players will need a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership.

Kaplan noted that the Overwatch team thinks of the animated shorts in seasons, with season one ending with The Last Bastion.

Hopefully, more info about the upcoming Anniversary Event will come out soon.

The Overwatch Anniversary Event is essentially a way of celebrating the charming shooter's very first birthday.

However, it looks like that may change in the future, as Kaplan continued: "One thing that's really fun about Blizzard games is celebrating other Blizzard games".
