Overwatch’s annual Anniversary event is live on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, and will run through June 9. As with previous Overwatch Anniversary events, all seasonal event brawls will be returning and all seasonal cosmetics will be unlocked.

The Anniversary event also brings with it new skins, including the long-awaited Masquerade Reaper legendary skin, a look that was first teased in the 2017 Doomfist comic “Masquerade.” In addition to Reaper’s fancy new look, Legendary rarity skins for Zenyatta, Ashe (and BOB), Wrecking Ball, and Mercy can also be earned from Anniversary loot boxes and purchased with credits.

Players can also earn three Epic rarity skins by winning nine games each week. Those skins will roll out as follows:

  • Week 1: Carbon Fiber Sigma (Epic)
  • Week 2: Fleur de Lis Widowmaker (Epic)
  • Week 3: Masked Man McCree (Epic)

For a look at all of the Anniversary 2020 skins (and a few sprays) coming to Overwatch today, check out the gallery below.
