Overwatch's anniversary event is here, bringing skins, dances, and new maps

May 24, 2017 1 min read

It's hard to believe that Overwatch has not only been out for a year, but that it's one of Blizzard's biggest successes, and one of its only new IPs in over a decade. They're pushing hard when it comes to their global eSports presence, but there's also a steady stream of content and events to keep people interested all around.

One of which includes the "Overwatch Anniversary," which brings in new skins, emotes, plus a bunch of other cosmetic stuff on top of three new arena maps -- Necropolis, Castillo, and Black Forest (read: re-skins of existing maps). I'm not particularly impressed with any of the skins (outside of Sentai/Kamen Rider Genji), and the maps are limited to arena play, so this isn't one of their better events -- but still, it's better than nothing.

I'm really just amazed that the game in general has held up this well. I play randomly during the week and typically rank Gold or above in competitive, and I'm still not getting bored. For the record, so far out of 12 boxes I've gotten the Cruiser D.Va skin, and I might buy Sentai Genji before the end of the run.
