Blizzard has continued to tease fans of Overwatch, with more news about what is to come for the Anniversary event. Were going to be getting some skins, emotes, as well as new voice lines. Judging by what has been shown so far it looks like Youtuber Hammeh, was right in his data mining. There was a file named “Event_6” during the last PTR, Hammeh discussed how many items each character would get, around 6 cosmetic items for most of the roster. Although, his statements haven’t been proven 100% correct yet. We will most certainly find out in a few days.
The anniversary event will also be coinciding with Blizzard’s free-to-play Overwatch weeekend from the 26th to the 29th of this month. Players will be able to play the full roster and play the full game. Also, for players who decide to pick up the game after the weekend, they will be able to keep the progress and cosmetics they have made during that time.
