"Overwatch" is one of the most successful games in the past year and it continues to do well.

The new maps may be designed for 1v1 and 3v3 matches, which so far offer Ecopoint: Antarctica as the only playable map. To celebrate the first anniversary of the game, Blizzard Entertainment has just announced an in-game event which will kick off on Tuesday, May 23. Odds are these won't be the only skins added to the event, but they look cool as a teaser for what's to come.

"We have some ideas", game director Jeff Kaplan said (via PvP Live). We felt like, for our first year, it was really important not to do that stuff.

It is now unclear if all the Overwatch characters will be getting their own dancing emotes, or if only these four characters will be getting them.

However, it looks like that may change in the future, as Kaplan continued: "One thing that's really fun about Blizzard games is celebrating other Blizzard games".

Even though the company has not revealed anything yet, "Overwatch" will be having a free weekend from May 26 to 29. They are happy to announce that there will be a GOTY edition of the video game, and there will be a free weekend event. In order to enjoy the Free Weekend, players will need a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership. It highlighted the game's numerous accomplishments like its release, the "Overwatch" league, and many more. Many are now speculating that the event might be like their past game events.
