It has been a successful year for the Overwatch team. Blizzard's phenomenal Online FPS has been collecting almost every game of the year awards in the industry last year. The game has also passed the 30 million player milestone before its one-year celebration.
Speaking of celebration, the Overwatch
Anniversary was unleashed yesterday and the game is offering a lot of freebies and rewards to its loyal fans. Three new arena maps are going to be available in Arcade. One of the maps is called Castillo which is modeled after an old port looking over Dorado's Bay, another one is called the Black Forest which is located on the outskirts of Eichenwalde, and the Necropolis which is the personal hideout of Ana Amari.
The event which runs from May 23 - June 12 will also feature a free loot box every time a player logs in, this will also mark the release of Overwatch's largest-ever release of new legendary skins, 100 commemorative loot boxes, and brand new emotes.
