To mark the one year anniversary of Overwatch, Blizzard has officially revealed their latest seasonal event for the hit title: Overwatch Anniversary; and announced the release of Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition. The latest seasonal event will include three new Arena Maps and over 100 commemorative Loot Box items—including skins like Lúcio’s Jazz DJ, Honey Bee Mei, Dune Buggy Bastion, Cruiser D.Va, Sentai Genji, Stealth Hanzo, Mecha Zarya, Cyborg 76, and more! Plus dances for each hero, as well as 24 new voice lines, 25 sprays, and 25 player icons, including golden player icons.
The three arena maps will be added to the Arcade section for players eager to take on opponents in 3v3 elimination. The new maps include:
Necropolis – Ana Amari has made Necropolis her personal hideout—and an impromptu field base where she can keep an eye on things. Head to Ana’s preferred vantage point at the top of the ruins, and use the high ground (and the element of surprise) against the enemy team. Or walk the stone corridors below, and take the fight to them directly—just watch out for pits!
Castillo – Castillo is an old fort looking out over Dorado’s bay. It’s the location of Calaveras, a bar frequented by questionable patrons; a graffitied Los Muertos hangout; and Sombra’s hacking den. Test your skills against the enemy team throughout Castillo’s multiple levels, and use its winding stairs for cover and strategic advantage.
Black Forest – On the outskirts of Eichenwalde, the misty Black Forest map wraps around a long-overlooked battlefield dotted with the wreckage of Bastion units. Flank your opponents on pathways between the castle and woods, and use the wooden balconies to move between the second stories of houses throughout the forest.
In addition, the price for the title itself has been reduced for fans eager to get in on the title with the basic game reduced to $29.99 and the Game of the Year edition debuting at $39.99 for a limited time. Check out the trailer for the Overwatch Anniversary event and the brand new skins below!
