'Overwatch' To Celebrate One-Year Anniversary, Host Free 'Weekend' May 26-29

On the 23 May, being released on all digital stores for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition, not only will this include numerous skins and loot boxes for Overwatch, but you'll find in-game goodies for other Blizzard titles too. Not exactly the most convenient, but that's the way it is for now. Otherwise, the company really wouldn't have much incentive to provide the free weekends, besides the possibility of it just wanting to give back to the fans.

The Overwatch team is excited to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of Overwatch with our latest seasonal event - Overwatch Anniversary, a Free-Weekend and the release of Overwatch®: Game of the Year Edition!

Blizzard has announced that "Overwatch" will get another free trial weekend next weekend, from Friday May 26 to Monday May 29. While it plays like a free-to-play games with its loot boxes and cosmetics, it's a paid product - it retails for $60 on console (it's $40 on PC for the base version), and it's the first game with this model to reach this level of success. Progress will carry over into the full game if you decide to purchase it.

"Overwatch" fans have been on confusion about the Blizzard's next event. Then, get ready for our first-ever Overwatch Anniversary celebration starting May 23!

Overwatch was released nearly a year ago on May 24th, 2016.
