Overwatch’s Anniversary Remix Event Begins Today, Brings Back Old Skins
Overwatch begins its first Anniversary Remix event today which brings back many previous event skins, now with white as their new primary color.
With Overwatch 2’s closed beta just around the corner, Activision Blizzard will be launching three Anniversary Remix events to keep players busy as we close in on the sequel’s release. Anniversary Remix Vol. 1 launches today, bringing back several skins from past events but now with a white colour palette.
The skins unlockable in this event are Witch Mercy, Oni Genji, Black Cat D.Va, Cultist Zenyatta, Nevermore Reaper, and Blackhardt Reinhardt, but with a new coat of paint. Additionally, skins that were only available through limited time events like Bastet Ana, Combat Medic Baptiste, and Nano D.Va will also make a return as weekly challenges that require playing several games to earn.
Anniversary Remix Vol. 1 will be live up to April 26, the same day as the closed beta for Overwatch 2. The other two “volumes” will happen between then and August, with more reworked skins for players to grab. The event will also see the return of popular game modes like the PvE Archives missions, the Rocket League-inspired Lucio Ball, and Mei’s Snowball Challenge, with other returning modes rotated in every week. Blizzard said these events will replace the Archives, standard Anniversary, and Summer Games events that usually happen throughout the year. This will be the first time in five years that Overwatch’s normal schedule has been interrupted.
Andy Belford, community manager released a statement on the Blizzard forums:
“This three-part anniversary event enables our team to allocate more time and attention to the upcoming PvP beta, while simultaneously providing the community with the chance to earn unique variants of your favorite Legendary skins.”
Belford went on to reiterate that all previously earned cosmetics will carry over into Overwatch 2, so legacy players have nothing to worry about.
