Overwatch normally celebrates its birthday throughout the month of May, giving players a chance to earn skins and cosmetics they’ve missed over the years. For the game’s sixth anniversary—and the last hurrah before Overwatch 2 takes over—things are looking a little different.
From April 5th to the 26th, players can bulk up their cosmetics closet with the Overwatch Anniversary Remix: Volume One event. The celebration includes six “remixed” Legendary skins as well as the return of three weekly challenges featuring some of the game’s most popular skins, like Bastet Ana. All of these and everything else will transfer to Overwatch 2, which launches a closed beta on April 26th.
The Overwatch Anniversary Remix event features six “new” Legendary skins, which are recolored versions of some of the game’s most-used skins. Here’s a list of the revamped skins players can unlock, along with the new skin’s original inspiration:
- Mage Mercy (Witch Mercy)
- Demon Genji (Oni Genji)
- Evermore Reaper (Nevermore Reaper)
- Steelhardt Reinhardt (Blackhardt Reinhardt)
- White Cat D.Va (Black Cat D.Va)
- Zealot Zenyatta (Cultist Zenyatta)
Throughout the event, three previous weekly challenges will return, giving players a chance to unlock popular skins they may have missed the first time around. And as with all Overwatch Anniversary events, all previous seasonal cosmetics will be available to unlock, either with gold or through Anniversary loot boxes. During this remix event, nearly every skin in the game will be up for grabs. Seasonal brawls will also return, with a new one available each day in arcade mode.
This is the first of three planned remix events that will take place during 2022. Each event will include new versions of popular skins as well as the return of weekly challenges for those hard-to-acquire cosmetics.
