Overwatch's New Anniversary Event Kicks Off Next Week, Includes Free Weekend

Blizzard Entertainment is celebrating the second anniversary of its popular online hero shooter "Overwatch" with a bunch of new content, it announced Monday. They're going to be releasing a new Deathmatch map, Petra, along with over 50 new cosmetic items for players to collect. All previous seasonal loot will be included in loot boxes during the event, and everyone who logs in to Overwatch during the second anniversary celebration will receive a free Legendary Anniversary loot box. As noted in the tweet, Blizzard will also be bringing back past brawls to the game, so gamers will want to keep an eye out for it. Players were not happy with the pricing but Jeff Kaplan, Game Director of Overwatch has mentioned that they are listening closely to players, so there might be a change this time around. Petra, a deathmatch-only arena, is coming to the game and will have a competitive mode with placements, leaderboards, and skill rankings.

The new details come after knowledge of the event was actually leaked.
