Happy Anniversary, Overwatch! The beloved game has delighted (and frustrated) gamers for five years now, and, to celebrate, the Anniversary event is live as of this writing!
As usual, each week of the event has a set of exclusive goodies to earn through playing games. Week one will grant players an icon, spray, and skin inspired by a Cybermedic Ana. Week two is an icon, spray and skin focused around the beautiful Bird of Paradise Echo. And, perhaps cutest of all, week three is an icon, spray, and skin celebrating the 8 Ball Wrecking Ball.
However, this Overwatch event does things a little differently. Players can earn points by playing Quick Play, Arcade, and Competitive, but winning these matches will earn you double points.
Check out some of the new Overwatch anniversary skins in the teaser trailer below.
Along with a plethora of icons, sprays, and more, the following legendary skins are brand-new: Black Cat Sombra, Funky Baptiste, Junkfood Junkrat, Venus Moira, and Gladiator Doomfist. Like past Overwatch anniversary events, all past event skins are also available (aside from paid skins).
The fifth-anniversary event for Overwatch is live now on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation and will run through June 8, 2021.
