Overwatch has more than 40 million players”

With Overwatch's two-year anniversary coming up, Blizzard and the Overwatch team are celebrating with an in-game event and a Free Weekend, playable on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Overwatch free weekend will be running from May 25 through May 28.

For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 27 heroes and 18 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade.

Given that much of that content is only available once per year, the chance to experience all of it at once and catch up on anything that you missed is a rare one. "So, we have a lot of special stuff planned for this event".

Jeff talks briefly about the new deathmatch map Petra which comes with a mega-health pack in the center of the map and it has a lot of "diversity".

In the developer update, Kaplan shared a few more details about the upcoming event, which kicks off on May 22.

"Petra is lovely", Kaplan said during Wednesday's Developer Update video. "For example, there is a mega-healthpack in the very center of the map in an area that becomes increasingly risky as the match goes on".

"There's parts of the map that are great for open, long-range heroes, there's parts of the map that are great for short-ranged heroes". With these loot boxes, players can get items that were left behind in the Summer Games and other Overwatch events.

The Legendary Edition will be released on May 22nd, the same date as the Anniversary in-game event begins.
