    What is up, Overwatch Community?
    This is Jeff from the Overwatch team.
    We are here to celebrate Overwatch's second
    anniversary, which is coming up very soon.
    In fact, the anniversary event is going
    to start on May 22nd.
    It is super exciting for us, we now have
    40 million players, which is amazing.
    and this is a great opportunity for us, the Overwatch team,
    to celebrate you all and all the amazing
    things you've done for the game,
    all the awesome content you've created for the game.
    So, we have a lot special stuff planned for this event.
    The first thing that I'm excited to talk about
    is a brand-new free-for-all deathmatch map,
    called Petra.
    Petra is beautiful.
    There is some really fun gameplay elements
    to it as well. For example, there is a mega-healthpack
    in the very center of the map in an area that
    becomes increasingly dangerous as the match goes on.
    We think you'll find that very fun.
    There's parts of the map where are great for
    open, long-range heroes, there's parts of
    the map that are great for short ranged heroes.
    There's a lot of diversity and we think you'll find
    it super super fun.
    The other exciting thing that will be coming
    as part of the anniversary event is our first
    ever free-for-all competitive deathmatch season
    that you'll get to partake in.
    So, this is chance for you to really show
    the Overwatch community what your skill is
    and what your skill is all about.
    So, for this mini competitive season, it will take
    place on both the Chateau map and the Petra map.
    It will be an all out contest
    to see who the best players are
    in Overwatch free-for-all competitive deathmatch.
    So that should be exciting.
    Now there's a lot of other exciting stuff
    happening as well.
    There's going to be a brand-new anniversary
    lootbox that is incredibly special this time.
    And the reason it's so special is because
    not only will you get a guaranteed anniversary
    item out of this lootbox, but there will be
    the opportunity for you to get any item from
    any of our seasonal events
    that's ever happened before.
    So, you know, this is the opportunity
    if you never got that Summer Games skin,
    you really want Nihon Genji and you didn't get it before,
    you might actually get it in your anniversary
    lootbox, in addition to an anniversary item.
    So we think that's going to be really amazing
    and really change things up.
    Along with that, you'll be able to unlock
    all of the seasonal items from all of the
    previous seasonal events that were unlockable
    during the anniversary event.
    So, hopefully you'll really enjoy that.
    To go with the theme of celebrating what a
    great year it has been and actually what a
    great two years its been for Overwatch,
    we will also be bringing back a bunch of your
    favorite select brawls to the arcade
    from previous seasonal events.
    So, for example, you can play Junkenstien,
    Junkenstien's Endless, Mei's Snowball Offensive,
    Lucio Ball, Uprising, Retribution,
    the all-heroes versions of those as well, and more.
    They will be cycling each day it will be a
    previous seasonal event, which we think will
    be really great.There's some really great
    cosmetic items too.
    I know you all love hearing about those.
    There's eight legendary skins and
    we think their really impressive,
    they are for some of our favorite heroes.
    One in particular, because you always like a hint,
    there is a certain dapper-looking gentleman
    that you've very much asked us to see
    what he would look like in formal wear.
    He will be coming to this anniversary event.
    All in all, we think its going to be a
    fantastic celebration.
    Mostly we want this event to feel like
    our way of saying thank you to you, the community,
    for creating an incredible two years with us.
    We look forward to not only celebrating
    this anniversary event, but all the things that
    are going to come afterwards.
    So thank you very much.
