There are new cosmetics coming to Blizzard’s hero shooter and we can’t wait to get stuck in and unlock the new set of Overwatch Anniversary Remix event skins – they might not be brand new designs, but they’re some of the most popular skins from the past five (and a bit) years.
With the Overwatch development team’s focus on the game’s sequel and the fast-approaching Overwatch 2 beta release date, according to Overwatch community manager Andy Belford, fans are getting a new kind of seasonal event for the next year – something that celebrates everything we’ve seen in Overwatch so far, rather than bring something new to the table.
The Overwatch Anniversary Remix event skins are a huge part of the upcoming event, alongside the returning Brawls, and we have a fantastic look at the cosmetics that you may be able to add to your Hero Gallery below. Of course, you don’t need to spend your Overwatch coins on them – but they do look great.
