Party On!

Can you believe it?

It’s been a full 5 years of kick-ass Overwatch action, loaded up with some of the finest moments of recorded esports history, and it is because of THIS very reason that the folks at Blizzard recently put out their trailer vid for the upcoming Overwatch Anniversary event.

The event was scheduled a little earlier in the year this time, specifically between the days of May 18th (aka TOMORROW Tuesday), and June 8th, so that’s a sizable two weeks and some days of fun and parties. Then, there’s the added benefit of the many tidbits that come attached to its cosmetics bundle, including legendary skins, hero voice lines, sprays, and tons of other cool stuff.

“Party On the Payload”
