Overwatch: Anniversary event, GOTY edition and free weekend all confirmed

Play Overwatch Free on PC PS 4 and Xbox One from May 26-29

Blizzard is celebrating one year since release with the Overwatch Anniversary Event, launching May 23rd. The game will be free-to-play for all on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. But, as I said, it makes too much sense for them to include Doomfist as a part of the event, so I wouldn't be surprised if my skepticism is unfounded.

On top of the event, there will also be an Overwatch Free-Weekend from May 26-29, with the entire roster of heroes and maps available.

Fan theories about the Overwatch cast's pasts abound, and players produce fiction, art and other original content in droves.

Some interesting tidbits about future plans for Overwatch have also come out of the event. The event will likely introduce new skins for players to collect, along with other cosmetic upgrades. The game's Season 4 competitive Play is now drawing to a close, and this week the "Overwatch" team has detailed the exact date and time that the "Overwatch" Season 4 will end.

"Players will also have the ability to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options", reads a Blizzard statement.

You want to play Overwatch, but you don't have money.

The upcoming Overwatch Anniversary event that's scheduled to take place between May 23 and June 12 is starting to take form.

Vintage Blackwatch Reyes, Strike-Commander Morrison, Overgrown Bastion, Security Chief Phara, and Slipstream Tracer skins.

Overwatch is still incredibly fun to play, so if you've somehow managed to stay away for a whole year there's really no excuse now.
