Overwatch has more than 40 million players

A free-to-play weekend for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is also scheduled for May 25th-28th, which will give new players the opportunity to try out the full game, except for Competitive play, before taking the plunge. We think you'll find that very fun. To help celebrate this and the anniversary, players can log in during the Overwatch Anniversary event and receive a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box. Additionally, the event will bring back all seasonal cosmetic items, as well as some past seasonal brawls. They're for some of our favorite Heroes.

Considering everything that will be on the table during the team-based shooter's Anniversary event, it definitely seems like a good time to be an Overwatch fan.

This Doomfist spray might be the inspiration behind the next Doomfist Legendary Skin. Starting on May 22nd, ending June 12th, a brand new in-game event will take place for all platforms.

Beyond that tease, much of the Developer Update recaps content mentioned in Monday's blog post. He also talks about the first ever free for all deathmatch season which will take place on the Chateaux and Petra maps. This will contain one guaranteed Anniversary item, as well as a random item from any previous Overwatch event. "Plus, if you decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game, you'll get to keep any progress that you made during the weekend-just be sure to use the same Blizzard, Xbox Live, or Sony Entertainment account that you played on".

All things considered, with Overwatch's community growing more so by the day, it's obvious that there may be some players out there who are still learning the ropes as to how one should best approach the title.
