Overwatch anniversary event leak reveals new Junkrat pirate skin and May 22 start date

Overwatch Anniversary plans LEAKED... all event skins will return and Junkrat has a new pirate outfit

The new cosmetics include three epic skins, eight legendary skins, and fresh new dance moves for Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte, having not been around for last year's party.

The video says that items and brawls from previous events will return for the anniversary event, but doesn't give any more details, such as whether there will be new skins other than Junkrat's (I assume there will). Oh, and a "Legendary Edition" is coming on May 22 with "Legendary, Epic and Origin skins for a total of 15 skins with purchase". The new Deathmatch map Petra will also include a brand-new Competitive Mode with placement matches, skill rating tiers, and leaderboards. Blizzard said that these brawls will be rotated daily during the event that runs from May 22 till June 12 and will also include brawls fount in Overwatch: Archives.

This means that skins from events such as Halloween, Summer Games, Winter Wonderland and Lunar New Year will all be made available again. These seasonal events keep players engaged and encourage them to buy more loot boxes, which keeps Overwatch profitable for Blizzard long after its debut. The Brazilian Overwatch Twitter account accidentally leaked a video last night which reveals Blizzard's plans for the Anniversary event. So if you haven't played Overwatch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC yet, that'll be your chance.

If you log in during the event, you'll get a Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, which will net you at least one guaranteed legendary item.
