Look at the new stuff coming in Overwatch's Anniversary event, including DANCES

Blizzard announced the event, which will run from May 23 to June 12 by releasing a YouTube video chronicling the game's development since Day 1 of the game's release.

New maps and skins are great, but the Overwatch Anniversary Event understands what loyal players really want: more dancing.

To kick things off, the European Overwatch twitter account posted a short video teasing some of the new Arena maps that will be coming to the game. The rereleased version will be called "Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition", and it will come with digital goodies and the actual base game.

The interview, which was held with turikk and BoozyPelican, the moderators of the official Overwatch sub-Reddit, along with ForceGaming's Dennis Duhamel, gave a glimpse of the mindset of Kaplan and the Overwatch development team as they head into the game's second year. We felt like, for our first year, it was really important not to do that stuff. While other first-person shooters continue to release DLCs that fragmentize their playerbases into who owns and who does not own the additional content, all the maps, heroes, and modes of Overwatch remains open to all. Before anyone knew the gameplay would be fantastic and the maps would provide so much beauty and sheer detail that they looked like they were ripped out of Pixar movies, we knew the Overwatch shorts were downright unbelievable. The fans will be able to also keep the progress if they will buy the game after the Free Weekend.

Overwatch Anniversary Event trailer - How does it look? With six unique seasonal events, three new heroes, and with four successful competitive seasons in the past year, Overwatch quickly became one of the most popular games online. This will, in turn, help the fans get ready for the massive event.
