Man, how time flies so fast! On this month four years ago there was buzz about a new game called Overwatch. I was with my fellow media colleagues in Taipei, Taiwan for #COMPUTEX and they purchased the game there. Every night, we hanged at one of our friends’ hotel room and watched a couple of them play Overwatch in their respective laptops. My first taste of the game was a month later in a media tournament, then eventually purchased the game for PC and PS4. That’s how much I got addicted to Overwatch. Last May 20, the Overwatch Anniversary 2020 event went live and it’s a special event I always look forward to every year.
In this year’s Overwatch 2020 Anniversary event, all previous seasonal event brawls will be returning and all seasonal cosmetics will be unlocked! Players can login to Overwatch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to celebrate Overwatch Anniversary 2020.
Watch the sizzle video below:
There are weekly challenges available during the Anniversary event, allowing you to unlock limited-time rewards by winning nine games. The rewards include player icons, skins and limited edition Epic skins!
