Blizzard announced the one year anniversary event for their popular, online shooter on Twitter, although Blizzard has yet to reveal what exactly will be a part of the celebration. Previous Overwatch events typically include new game modes and tons of new loot, like hero skins, victory animations, and voice lines, so expect much of the same for Overwatch's first birthday celebration.
Blizzard will also be putting out a re-release of the game with an Overwatch: Game of the Year edition. It will include the original game along with several digital bonuses that were previously available to players who pre-ordered the game a year ago. These include the origin skins for Soldier 76, Pharah, Tracer, Bastion, and Reaper, 10 free Loot Boxes, a playable Tracer for Heroes of the Storm, Mercy's Wings accessory for Diablo 3, a Winston pet for World of WarCraft, and Overwatch bonuses for StarCraft II and Hearthstone.
If you haven't jumped on the Overwatch train yet, Blizzard will host a free weekend starting May 26 and running through May 29. Those late to the party can download Overwatch and play for free during this time on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
