New genji ow skin

The last-ever Overwatch event before the launch of OW2 has gone live giving fans one more chance to unlock skins from the archives in the form of Aniversary Remix Volume 3.

Throughout the event, which will run until August 30, players will be able to unlock any cosmetics from previous events in addition to some new remix skins.

This time, Soldier 76, D.Va, Baptiste, Tracer Genji, and Pharah have received the remixed skin treatment, but there are additional skins available too.

Cosmetics from Tracer’s Comic, Symmetra’s Restoration and Hanzo’s Kazenka Challenges are also unlockable by simply playing matches.

Alongside the cosmetics, even brawls from past events are also live, so you can play JunkenStein’s Revenge and the Archives missions for the 2000th time before Overwatch 2 finally releases on October 4.
