Blizzard is following through on its promise to provide more information about the upcoming Overwatch Anniversary event, releasing three different teasers of new goodies for the game.

"Here's a sneak peek at three new ARENA MAPS coming soon to our Overwatch Anniversary celebration".

Blizzard Entertainment confirmed earlier today that Overwatch will turn into a free-to-play title from 26-29 May, next week across all platforms. The "Overwatch" anniversary event will run through June 12.

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan recently suggested that the studio would be open to more Blizzard crossover content in the future.

The interview, which was held with turikk and BoozyPelican, the moderators of the official Overwatch sub-Reddit, along with ForceGaming's Dennis Duhamel, gave a glimpse of the mindset of Kaplan and the Overwatch development team as they head into the game's second year. Players will be able to play on these maps in various modes such as Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Weekly Brawl mode.

There has been an influx of exciting news for Overwatch fans leading up to the game's first anniversary. They are happy to announce that there will be a GOTY edition of the video game, and there will be a free weekend event. In order to enjoy the Free Weekend, players will need a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership. To really set Overwatch apart as its own IP. "So I think we would like to do it at some point".

According to Kaplan, while an expansion pack or sequel for Overwatch could be cool, the development team now has no idea what that would look like. "So our first season started with "Recall" and ended with 'The Last Bastion.'" According to Kaplan, the team is "hard at work on more of those" and "making good progress".
