Two skins coming to Overwatch with anniversary event shown

New Overwatch skins revealed ahead of next week’s anniversary event.

Overwatch’s second anniversary is here and there’s a special event planned for next week to celebrate. As well as a new deathmatch, players can look forward to the introduction of 50 cosmetic items. Two of them – new skins for Tracer and Soldier: 76 – have already been teased on the game’s official Twitter account, and our heroes are looking pretty snazzy.

Venom Soldier and Lightning Tracer join a pirate Junkrat, whose event skin was leaked on the Brazilian Overwatch Twitter account earlier this week.

The cosmetic items will include eight legendary and three epic skins, as well as new dance emotes.

Overwatch Anniversary 2018 begins next week, but we’re starting the celebration early with new item reveals.
