It's been three years since Blizzard released team shooter Overwatch as one of its cornerstone franchises. Now the game is celebrating its birthday with a new Overwatch Anniversary event. If you're looking for information regarding the Overwatch Anniversary event dates, along with the start and end times, you're in the right place. Here's what you need to know!
Overwatch Anniversary event dates, start and end times
The Overwatch Anniversary is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 21 at 2PM EDT. The event is set to run until June 10, ending at roughly the same time of 2PM EDT.
The Overwatch Anniversary will feature all-new skins, dances, sprays, and other cosmetic items. Seasonal cosmetics from previous events will all be made available during the Overwatch Anniversary period. In addition to that, players can expect to see six new Legendary skins, three epic skins, and dance emotes for the new characters introduced since last year's Overwatch Anniversary: Baptiste, Ashe, and Wrecking Ball.
Previous seasonal brawls will return and be accessible via the Arcade mode. Different brawls will rotate in and out on a daily basis, including last month's Overwatch Archives: Storm Rising PvE content.
Those looking to take part of the Overwatch Anniversary will either need the full version of the game or they can take part in the first week's free trial. The free trial will run from May 21-28, with all players receiving one Legendary Loot Box upon logging in.
You now know the start and end times for this year's Overwatch Anniversary event. Prepare for Tuesday and get ready to celebrate the third year of Overwatch.
