Overwatch Anniversary start date, event skins release time and PS4 Workshop launch

The new Overwatch Anniversary event is launching today, bringing new skins and cosmetics to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

And some platforms will see the launch of Blizzard’s brand new Workshop Mode, which will bring something new to consoles.

The good news is that Overwatch events always have a unified release time, and based on previous occasions, fans can expect the Anniversary event to begin between 6 pm and 8 pm.

We can’t be precisely sure when the 2019 celebration will start, but what we do know is that the third Overwatch Anniversary event will come packaged in a new update.

This year’s Anniversary event will bring back skins and items from past Overwatch events, not to mention returning brawls and game modes.

New Legendary skins will be launching as part of the event, some of which have already been revealed.

This includes a new design for Winston, who has been turned into a Gargoyle for the limited-time celebrations.

Academy D․Va is another new skin which will be released during the 2019 Overwatch Anniversary event.

It’s expected that six new legendary skins will be part of the new seasonal lineup, alongside three new epic skins.

Other cosmetic items will be bundled into the event, which will end around June 10, 2019.

Every Anniversary Loot Box is guaranteed to have at least one of more than 190 Anniversary event items, including the new items for this year.

And each purchase of the 50 Anniversary Loot Boxes bundle also includes one bonus Legendary Anniversary Loot Box and players will also receive one Legendary Anniversary Loot Box for logging in to the game during the event.

The other big news being confirmed by Blizzard today is that they will be launching their brand new Workshop Mode on PS4.

Keith Miron, the lead software engineer of Overwatch, revealed more on the project, which has been available for testing on PC.

For those that don’t know, the Workshop is a simple game scripting system that gives players the power to customise features in the Game Browser and create their own custom Overwatch games.

This means that players can create scripts, and add Rules and play Conditions on top of the established game modes players already have.
