One day short of the one-year anniversary of Blizzard’s smash-hit, Overwatch’s anniversary event has gone live!

Bringing with it new cosmetics, featured arcade game modes, new arena maps, and more. One year and 30 million unique players later, Blizzard is celebrating the players and characters of Overwatch with some seriously gorgeous new skins, dance emotes for every character, 24 new voice lines, 25 sprays, and 25 new character icons.

With the fourth competitive season coming to a close this weekend, Blizzard wanted to make sure you could show off your luck in pulling rare skins and other cosmetics before the free weekend, running from May 26th to the 29th. What better way to show off the game to new players than to rub your loot in their face? In all seriousness, Blizzard should be proud of the success they’ve achieved, especially when compared to other attempts at hero shooters released in the same period.

Overwatch’s anniversary event runs from May 23rd through June 12th, so get out their and have a blast, or in the immortal words of Junkrat, “It’s a perfect day for some mayhem“.
