All limited time cosmetics that have been released a year ago during the events, including the newly added 8 legendary and 3 epic skins will be available. There's also plenty of new stuff to enjoy, including Competitive Mode for Deathmatch, a fresh Deathmatch map called Petra, and dance emotes for the champions who weren't around this time a year ago.

If you log into Overwatch during the anniversary event, you'll get a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box.

Blizzard also added three new arena maps that supported 3v3 elimination rounds.

The Overwatch two-year anniversary event will introduce the brand-new Deathmatch map, Petra, along with a new mode. Which will, like standard competitive play, include placements matches, skill ratings, and leader-boards.

The tweet also mentioned the brawls that are returning, these modes being past seasonal brawls that'll be found in the Arcade.

I will never forget Luis Figo's last match at Inter Milan. "On behalf of myself, a massive thank you to everyone for your support. I'm not sure if he can do it for 90 minutes, but even if he can, I will bring him off so he can come off on his own.

Junkrat was featured getting a pirate-themed skin that can be unlocked via loot boxes or in-game cash. It is the game's second anniversary, which means Overwatch Anniversary 2018 will run from May 22 until June 11, 2018.

As for returning seasonal items, dance emotes from last year's anniversary event will be available again. If you want to spend money, picking up the 50 loot box bundle comes with a bonus of one legendary loot box.

Overwatch is celebrating the second anniversary of its launch, and is doing so in a massive way.

Overwatch is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Previous seasonal loot will also be included in Loot Boxes during the anniversary event. This one will come with 15 skins right out of the box ranging from Legendary, Epic and Origin classes. However, fans of the game were quick enough to rip the video and distributed it all over the Internet.
