[Update]: The Anniversary update has now arrived. You can learn more over here.

Overwatch's second anniversary update is set to arrive this May 22nd, bringing with it an absolute ton of cosmetics to collect and brawls to undertake. Not only will it feature a variety of new skins and voice lines, but all of the previous seasonal items and brawls will be making a reappearance as well. So if you've missed any of the previous events, or if you didn't have enough currency to purchase the skin you wanted, you will soon have another chance at it!

As far as the new skins are concerned, Blizzard was planning to reveal most of them during half-time breaks in the Overwatch League, but unfortunately for them all of the skins have now ended up being leaked through Reddit. So if you don't mind a little bit of a spoiler, allow me to show you what sort of cosmetics the upcoming anniversary update will bring to the table. The quality isn't exactly the greatest, but you should still be able to get the general idea behind each skin. Have a gander:

While this probably won't mean much to most of you, it's also worth mentioning that Overwatch will be fully free-to-play from May 25-28 on both PC and consoles. So if you have any friends or loved ones you wanted to get hooked on Overwatch, this upcoming Anniversary event would be a pretty darn good place to start given the plethora of cosmetics and brawls.

Once Blizzard reveals more information about the Anniversary update I'll make sure to let you know, but until then I'll leave you to ponder over which skin is the best. Enjoy!
