Blizzard could finally be adding more maps for these modes, but a datamine from a year ago hinted that Arena will be an entirely new mode.

As for the new Anniversary event skins, these were posted in a video on the Korean Overwatch Twitter page.

Overwatch's Anniversary Event begins on May 23rd, the same day its Game of the Year Edition launches, and will end on June 12th.

After many weeks of rumors and speculations, Blizzard Entertainment has finally confirmed that they are going to have an anniversary event for their smash hit, "Overwatch".

While there are no detailed reports on the upcoming event and its contents, Blizzard lets the fans have a look at some of the new maps, skins, and some other new features.

The Overwatch Anniversary Event is essentially a way of celebrating the charming shooter's very first birthday.

Courtesy of Facebook, we get to see some new skins for Bastion, Pharah, Soldier 76 and Zarya.

The State Bank of Vietnam on May 15 confirmed that no Vietnamese credit institutions were affected by the WannaCry ransomware. The White House said on Monday that under $70,000 (£54,000) had been paid in total in a bid to get any locked data released.

"We have some ideas", game director Jeff Kaplan said (via PvP Live). You can download Overwatch and play it for free from May 26-29. We felt like, for our first year, it was really important not to do that stuff. No release date has been set, but since "Overwatch" came out on May 24, 2016, the event will likely kick off sometime next week.

Blizzard also announced that they will provide a free weekend to introduce new players to the game across all platforms, and this is also to celebrate its one-year anniversary.

The event will also coincide with a free weekend taking place across PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Players will also be able to level up fast, earn some loot boxes, and unlock various new customization options. In order to enjoy the Free Weekend, players will need a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership.

At the final parts of the Anniversary Event, players will have an Overwatch Game of the Year Edition as well.

There is still plenty of info yet to be revealed for the Overwatch Anniversary Event, so be sure to check back for future updates!
