Overwatch Turns a Year Old Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Overwatch turns a year old. A year old!  A lot of has happened in the past year. With the Summer Event, Halloween, Winter and other events, it has felt pretty packed, and the Overwatch team have definitely delivered with great for all types of players. There have even been PvE modes!

I Still Love It

I’ve had a blast with Overwatch in the past year, and while I haven’t played it every single event like crazy, I’ve enjoyed every one. And you know what, even after a year, I still love the game. And that’s all down to the characters and music. Well the characters mostly. Each and every one have incredible personalities, which is what gives the game life.

My favourite thing so far is actually during the halloween PvE event, which gave a solid challenge and required a lot of teamwork. I almost always had to play Ana as no one else wanted to, but I mostly have to play as support characters anyway so it was a blast! Plus I got some nice practice with Ana.

Soldier: 76’s New Skin

This week (actually today) will bring us an anniversary event from May 23rd – June 13th. With it we’ll get a load of loot to get our hands on, with skins, sprays and maps as far as I know. In regards to skins, we know that Pharah, Solider: 76, Bastion, Symmetra and Zarya. We’ll probably get some for other characters too as this is what I’d call the biggest Overwatch in-game event so far.
