Overwatch’s 5th Anniversary Events Commence

In May 2016, Blizzard Entertainment released Overwatch on the Windows PC and consoles at the time. Having become a major player in the e-sports scene, with support from the development team, these last five years has seen the game go from strength to strength – although not without some controversies. With the game’s 5th Anniversary to be held next week, Blizzard has outlined a number of events available to players over the coming weeks.

Content wise, players can look forward to a rotation of all game modes on a daily rotating basis. According to Blizzard, you will be able to “Kick it with Lúcioball one day; spend the next having snow much fun in a Winter Wonderland brawl”. On offer are the Winter Wonderland, Halloween Terror, Summer Games, Archives, and Lunar New Year brawls, each on specific days – with all seasonal cosmetics also available to unlock.

For those looking to join the chaos and combat of Overwatch, Blizzard will be marking down the price of the game on Battle.net by 50% off, from today until 29 May 2021.

Also on offer are new cosmetics, all of which are listed below:

  • Legendary Skins:
