Hope you don't have plans this weekend, or are like, going to a giant electronics expo, because Blizzard is hosting a Double XP event across all platforms. On PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, players will be able to get double experience nearly all across the game starting June 8—the only thing barred from a bonus is the 1500 XP one gets for their first win of the day.
The Double XP event is being marketed as yet another addition to Blizzard's ongoing anniversary celebration. Yet, in all likelihood, it's potentially also in response to the recent claims that statistically the latest Overwatch anniversary event has made it harder to get rare skins.
The current ongoing Overwatch event features new loot, including rare skins and dance emotes. The special Anniversary Event ends on June 12. So basically, this is your last chance to rack up a bunch of limited edition loot.
The Double XP event begins for all players on Thursday, June 8 at 8:00pm PDT, and runs until Monday, June 12 at 11:59pm PDT. I'll probably be playing a bit over the weekend, when I'm not entrenched in the abyss of E3 hell. (I'll be a part of the home team.) But at least, I lucked out and already got the skin I wanted most. For the rest of you: I wish you luck and many Cruiser D.Va skins in your future.
