Overwatch‘s Anniversary event for 2019 has now kicked off, bringing with it a bunch of exciting new skins across a number of heroes.
As is always the case with Overwatch Anniversary Events, popular events from earlier in the year are featured throughout the three-week celebration, and so we can expect to see a rotating playlist including Junkenstein and Lucio Ball join the fold.
Alongside those favourites will be your stockstandard rush of new Legendary Skins for the Anniversary event, as well as new dancing emotes for the game’s three newest heroes that joined this past year in Ashe, Wrecking Ball and Baptiste.
Blizzard will ramp up Overwatch‘s three-year anniversary celebrations with a week of free-to-play action as well, with a free trial on offer from May 21 to May 28 across Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
What is perhaps most appealing about the anniversary event is that it will open up all past skins — including event skins — to be purchased with in-game currency, meaning that old Lunar New Year or Christmas skin that you missed out on can now be purchased with standard currency throughout the Anniversary event.
Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan, said earlier this month that the team was working on a DVa skin that would “break the internet”, and, well, it may well just do that, but we’ll let you be the judge of that. Check it out below along with the rest of the Anniversary 2019 skins from the event.
