The 2019 Overwatch Anniversary event has arrived, celebrating three years since the game’s release on May 24, 2016.
Anniversary is a celebration of all things Overwatch, meaning as well as introducing a selection of new skins and emotes, Anniversary also unlocks a variety of other content that is usually restricted to the three-week run of other events during the year.
As with the 2018 edition, this year’s Anniversary event will offer players the chance to experience various Arcade Brawls that are usually unavailable outside of their respective events.
The Brawl featured in the Arcade will change each day of the event, which lasts from May 21 to June 11, so if you’re a particular fan of one of them it’s worth making the most of it while it’s there. If you miss out it will be at least a week before the mode returns, if at all.
The Brawl schedule will follow a consistent rotation of game modes each week, starting off with the Summer Games’ Lúcioball, followed by Halloween’s Junkenstein’s Revenge and Christmas’s Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunt, before finishing with a run of Archives missions.
The second week will also the “Endless” variant for Junkenstein’s Revenge, as well as the All Heroes versions of the three Archives missions, Uprising, Retribution, and Storm Rising.
