Original story:

Overwatch (opens in new tab)'s three-year anniversary event will kick off on Tuesday, May 21, bringing back both seasonal cosmetics and brawls alongside a week-long free trial.

As well as returning cosmetics, which include dance emotes and skins, the event will add six new legendary and three new epic skins, as well as new dances for Baptiste (opens in new tab), Ashe and Wrecking Ball.

Past cosmetics will be available in loot boxes for the duration of the event and anybody that logs on will receive a free legendary loot box, guaranteed to give you a legendary item. The event will finish on June 10.

Past seasonal brawls will be playable through the Arcade, and will rotate daily. These will include the brawls from last month's Storm Rising event.

Lastly, the free trial for Overwatch will run from May 21 to May 28. You'll be able to start the trial here (opens in new tab).
