Four Overwatch Anniversary Skins Previewed for Bastion, Pharah, Zarya, and Soldier: 76

By   /   May 19, 2017

There are at least four new Overwatch Anniversary skins that will be released next week to celebrate the momentous first birthday of the game.

Bastion, Pharah, Zarya, and Soldier: 76 are the ones from the current roster who will be getting new wardrobe options. From an early perspective, Bastion seems to have the best skin of the lot. Soldier: 76 follows closely with an augmented body that comes with prosthetics and a futuristic visor. Pharah joins Genji with a new nomad skin while Zarya is pinker than usual.

There is no information on the pricing of the four new Overwatch Anniversary skins. However, the last Overwatch: Uprising event saw nearly every skin set at 3,000 coins. While the community will be hoping to see Blizzard make them a bit cheaper this time around, it is likely that the pricing model will remain the same.

The one-year anniversary celebration is scheduled to run from May 23 through June 12. Blizzard is slowly revealing what we should expect from the event. So far the developer has confirmed that the event will mark the launch of a new Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition, which will replace the current Overwatch: Origins Edition and feature ten free loot boxes.

There will also be a free weekend for players to test-drive all twenty-four heroes in all fourteen maps across every game mode. Any progress made during the period will be transferred over if the player decides to purchase a copy afterwards. This includes levels, cosmetic upgrades, and other rewards unlocked. Just note that the account needs to be the same or else the player will have to start from scratch.
