Tomorrow marks one year since the release of Overwatch. And with it, a new event for the Overwatch faithful to throw money at. The one-year anniversary event is live with a whole bunch of new skins and emotes to unlock.

Here’s what I got in my free loot box.

Overwatch anniversary loot box stuff

My man Lucio is looking slick! Ok, so I wanted Genji or Soldier: 76 – but Lucio will do. Now, comes the grind for a few more. Sorry Blizzard, you’re not getting real money out of me. At least, not for a few days.

What did you get from your first loot box? Or, the first batch you bought?

The Anniversary Event isn’t just an excuse to toss money Blizzard’s way. There’s also three new Arena maps to do battle on. Each one is playable on the Arcade and supports up to 3v3 elimination matches.


Overwatch Necropolis

Ana Amari’s hideout isn’t so hidden anymore. “Head to Ana’s preferred vantage point at the top of the ruins, and use the high ground (and the element of surprise) against the enemy team. Or walk the stone corridors below, and take the fight to them directly – just watch out for pits,” reads the official description.


Overwatch Castillo

Sombra’s old hacking stomping grounds features multiple levels to and winding stairs to grind for loot boxes on.

Black Forest

Just outside Eichenwalde, old wreckage of Bastion units dot the woods and around the castle.

Gear up to unlock a bunch of new stuff you don’t want as you agonizingly wait for that one drop you’re looking for.

Overwatch’s Anniversary event is live starting today through June 12. What drop are you crossing your fingers for?
