Blizzard has announced an upcoming "Legendary" edition of Overwatch.

A free-to-play weekend for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is also scheduled for May 25th-28th, which will give new players the opportunity to try out the full game, except for Competitive play, before taking the plunge.

The latest Overwatch developer update with Jef Kaplan has been released ahead of the second anniversary event.


Overwatch Anniversary will bring in a host of new content, including more than 50 fresh cosmetic items and the newest Deathmatch map, Petra!

The new edition comes at a flawless time for new players considering picking up the game. He then promised great diversity in the map for both short-range heroes and snipers, which is great for all the Hanzo 2.0 mains out there. He also talks about the first ever free for all deathmatch season which will take place on the Chateaux and Petra maps. "Players will also be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options for their heroes". All previous items will be their regular discounted price.

None of the new 11 skins were shown in the video, but that didn't stop Kaplan from dropping a cryptic hint. He stated that an oft-requested "dapper-looking gentleman" in "formal wear" would appear, which most likely means that Doomfist is getting his tuxedo skin from this Overwatch comic. Starting on May 22nd, ending June 12th, a brand new in-game event will take place for all platforms.
