'Overwatch' Anniversary Event To Add Three Arena Maps, Dance Emotes: Will We Finally See Doomfist? - GN Tech ATF

All the Overwatch and Blizzard fans are in for a massive treat next week as the developer prepares for the big Anniversary Event.

After showing off three new maps that are part of the event next week, Blizzard also teased some new skins, emotes, and voice lines across separate regional Overwatch social accounts. Fans have been feasted with a brief look of some of the upcoming maps, Skins and other new features for Overwatch.

The new legendary skins will be available in "One Year Anniversary Loot Boxes" from May 23 to June 12, an announcement that came to the excitement of many. In the meantime, Blizzard should expand on other aspects of the event as well, including what new skins fans can expect to unlock during the festivities, and if there will be a new game mode, as rumored. The description of the new maps as Arena maps is also an interesting thing to note, as Blizzard has not widely used the term before.

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

Subsequently, the researchers also compared the test results with birds, which are said to be the modern day version of dinosaurs. The researchers believe those could have had bite forces up around 18,000 pounds, over twice as high as what T. rex could do.

"We have some ideas", game director Jeff Kaplan said (via PvP Live). We felt like, for our first year, it was really important not to do that stuff.

It is now unclear if all the Overwatch characters will be getting their own dancing emotes, or if only these four characters will be getting them.

In addition, Blizzard has also planned to hold another Free Weekend for the month of May.

Blizzard also revealed that it will be adding new content into the standard loot boxes of Overwatch, including sitting and laughing emotes for Sombra and Orisa. This means that the game can be downloaded for free by interested players. The fans will be able to also keep the progress if they will buy the game after the Free Weekend. Many are now speculating that the event might be like their past game events.
