New cosmetics await you.
Overwatch Anniversary 2019

It's that time again. The time of the year in which Overwatch celebrates its anniversary. From now until June 10, 2019 you will be able to unlock various cosmetics just for playing the game and getting really lucky with RNG loot boxes. Alternatively, you can drop some of your hard-earned dollars to buy those RNG loot boxes directly.

If you don't care about cosmetic items, you may be interested in diving back into some of the previous event activities that have returned. This anniversary event has brought back stuff like the Summer Games (Lucioball), Halloween Terror, Winter Wonderland, Lunar New Year, and Overwatch Archives. According to the schedule, these will rotate in on a daily basis to keep things fresh throughout the event.

The biggest drawback to this event is the fact that the Anniversary Loot Boxes don't just include new items from this year's event. They can also include items from previous Anniversary and seasonal events. It's just RNG stacked atop RNG. Of course, if you have enough of the in-game currency, which is also largely RNG based to get, you can buy the item directly that you want.

There is also a play for free event running from now (May 21) until May 28.
