Overwatch Anniversary Event Adds New Skins and Map

What's more, all previously released seasonal cosmetic items, and "most" of the prior brawls for Arcade (on a daily, rotating basis), will be back for the new anniversary event. You can also access over 50 new cosmetic items, including eight legendary skins and three new epic skins, and new dance emotes.

There's a lot to enjoy with this anniversary celebration, from new content to a new Deathmatch map. This version is called the Legendary Edition and will include Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins with 15 skins in total. This year, deathmatch will also feature a competitive variant with placement matches and skill rating. The new one is a belter: a Junkrat pirate skin complete with sabres, an eye patch, and a prosthetic leg made up of a skull with glaring green eyes on top of a metal hook.

ncludAfter last year's one-year anniversary in-game event which saw the addition of new emotes, skins, and more, many fans have been speculating about what Blizzard has planned for this year's event.
