Overwatch Anniversary Event Officially Announced, Legendary Edition Unveiled (VIDEO)
The release date for this year’s Anniversary Event in Overwatch was leaked yesterday, but with the internet being its usual crafty self, some salt was required. That being said, Blizzard Entertainment has officially announced the event, and it looks like the leak was true.
In a video released on the game’s Twitter page, we see the same one that was leaked, only we get music this time around. The Anniversary Event is in fact beginning on May 22nd, and it will be bringing “past brawls and cosmetics” to the game for a limited time. Check it out for yourself below:

As it was with last year’s event of the same type, all of the past cosmetics will be available for players who missed out the first time around. In addition to all of this glory that will be returning to the game, a new Deathmatch map, Petra, will also be arriving in-game. New skins will be in abundance as well as dancing emotes for Brigitte, Doomfist, and Moira.
On top of this, a Legendary Edition of the game has been announced. It will be released on May 22nd (digitally) and include a total of 15 skins (Legendary, Epic, and Origin). Whether you’re joining in on the fun for the first time, or you’re a seasoned veteran at this point, we can all appreciate Blizzard’s hard work on the popular FPS.
Overwatch is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as the Anniversary Event kicks off in epic fashion, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
