Overwatch has become one of Blizzard's biggest and most successful games, and this two-year anniversary has Blizzard in the mood to celebrate.

All limited time cosmetics that have been released previous year during the events, including the newly added 8 legendary and 3 epic skins will be available. Starting May 22 and running through June 11 on all platforms (that's PC, PS4, and Xbox One), you'll be able to score skins and play brawls from past seasonal events like Halloween Terror and Winter Wonderland.

More than 50 new items, including eight new Legendary skins and three epic skins, can be obtained during the 2018 anniversary event. As noted in the tweet, Blizzard will also be bringing back past brawls to the game, so gamers will want to keep an eye out for it.

And of course there will be a free weekend in there too. ▲ The golden loot box has a 100% chance to give you a non-repeat legendary skin. During the event, players will not only be able to earn new skins, but they will also be able to grab other cosmetics from other events.

The two year anniversary event has some surprises for the Overwatch veterans as well. Much like a year ago, Overwatch free weekend coincides with the release of the Overwatch Anniversary event.
