Overwatch released on May 24, 2016. It hasn't been stated whether or not this mode will be permanent, or if it'll just last for the anniversary event only.

The Overwatch Anniversary event for 2018 has received its first official tease from Blizzard today. There's gonna be a lot of stuff for you to collect, so if you've been taking a break from Overwatch to play Fortnite-or some other game-then, starting May 22, this is the ideal time to get back into the fight. Players can download and try the hero shooter from May 25th through May 29th.
A free weekend has been announced as part of these Overwatch festivities. A brand new map based in Petra looks to be in the cards, and it's getting a Competitive Mode much like Elimination did last month. Speaking of which, Blizzard will also release a new Overwatch Legendary Edition on May 22, which will include sets of Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins. Plus, Doomfist, Moira, and Brigitte all have new dance moves. Some past seasonal brawls will also return to the Arcade, and they'll be rotating daily.
However, it isn't yet known whether these items will be available to buy or if you'll have to be lucky with loot boxes.More news: Indian Pavilion Inaugurated at Cannes Film Festival 2018
Anyone that boots up Overwatch during the Anniversary event will earn themselves a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, guaranteeing the player a Legendary item. Any players who grab the 50 Loot Box Bundle will get one bonus Legendary Anniversary Loot Box as well, all of which can include any Seasonal event loot included from the game's history.
The original Overwatch Anniversary event added 100 new cosmetics items, which were available in Commemorative Loot Boxes.
The event, which celebrates the game's release, will apparently arrive May 22 and like previous year will bring a swarm of rare items. Let us know in the comments section below.
So what do you think of the upcoming anniversary event in Overwatch?
