Overwatch Celebrates One Year Anniversary with Free Weekend Event

18 May 2017

The Overwatch Anniversary Celebration festivities will commence on 23rd May and run until 12th June.

Blizzard Entertainment has finally confirmed the end date and timings for season 4 of Competitive Play in Overwatch. And although the designer didn't reveal when season five of Overwatch competitive play would be beginning, Mercer does say that "We chose to have a shorter amount of "offseason" time without competitive play as compared to previous seasons".

Overwatch has had quite the first year of a video game, racking up more than a billion dollars and 30 million players over the course of these twelve months, releasing three new heroes, new game types and continually expanding as more and more players ravenously seek to push the payload (or don't, depending on who you talk to). This year, the game is looking to turn one in a big way this year with couple exciting announcements for the community.

During the weekend, Overwatch's full roster of 24 heroes and 14 maps will be available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl, Blizzard said.
