Believe it or not, Overwatch has been live and playable for two years. Blizzard is celebrating the milestone in a truly appropriate way by equipping a new event with lots of new skins, dances, a new map, and some major heroes' shifts.
The biggest playable update is the introduction of a new free for all cards, called Petra. It has serious vertical elements that are accessible with jump cushions, just like in Overwatch 's other free map.
In addition to the new map, most of Overwatch & # 39; s old brawls and special events are playable during the anniversary event, with a brawl of the day cycling through the arcade. Cosmetics has always been a big part of the special events, and this year is no different, with eight new Legendary Skins: Stealth Bastion, Shieldmaid Brigitte, Formal Doomfist, Buccaneer Junkrat, Sherlock McCree, Forest Spirit Orisa, Magician Symmetra and Cybjörn Torbjörn
In Turning to Hero Change is the biggest update for Ana, the sniper hero who has been standing in front of the stage lately. Her ammo has a shot of 1
Full Patch Notes are below:
New Seasonal Event: Overwatch Anniversary 2018
Celebrate Overwatch's two-year anniversary with a new FFA (Free -for-all) Deathmatch Card – Petra – and over 190 anniversary items (60 + new for 2018), including eight legendary skins: Stealth Bastion, Shieldmaid Brigitte, Formal Doomfist, Buccaneer Junkrat, Sherlock McCree, Forest Spirit Orisa, Magician Symmetra and Cybjorn Torbjorn. Have you missed an item from an earlier event? Throughout Overwatch's Anniversary, you can unlock items from previous seasonal events with credits (and open jubilee boxes)!
Many of our recent seasonal brawls will be available in the arcade and the brawl of the day will revolve throughout the event.
As a bonus this year, each anniversary loot box can contain items from past seasonal events! You will also receive a Legendary Anniversary Loot Box with at least one Guaranteed Legendary item just to log in during the event.
Thank you for spending the past two years playing Overwatch with us. We look forward to having you in the game!
New map: Petra
A group of archaeologists has an excavation and conservation project under the ruins of Petra, a new FFA (free for all) deathmatch card that all heroes on themselves until a hero makes enough eliminations to win the game.
See Petra's majestic views from high vistas to winding passages and deep caves. Travel along deadly cliffs, but be careful not to fall off! A dilapidated bridge spans the map, and the ground below can decay into a deadly pit (with a little firepower). If you jump on a green jump field, you will reach the higher levels of Petra and unlock new strategic opportunities for you. , ,
New Competitive Game Mode: FFA Deathmatch
Petra and Château Guillard will also be available in an optional Competitive FFA Deathmatch mode with placement match, ability rating, leaderboards and the ability to earn competitive  HERO UPDATES
- Projectiles will now pass through allies in full health
- Ammunition increased from 10 to 14
Developer comments: These changes Ana should help her in the midst of a great fight trying to heal the healing. Allies who do not need healing will potentially stop firing shots for teammates who need them. Increasing her journal makes it less likely that Ana will be reloaded during an important fight.
- Maximum armor per player reduced from 150 to 100
- Cooldown increased from 5 to 6 seconds
Developer's Comments: Brigitte's ultimate ability is very powerful, especially when brought up to maximum by many allies. This change reduces Rally's maximum armor value, but does not reduce the total amount of armor the ability receives during its duration. This means that if they are used in combat while their allies take damage, it should be about the same, but the lingering effects of the armor should have less impact. Her Shield Bash is a very strong ability with a relatively short cooldown that makes it difficult for her opponents to fool around. Increasing this cooldown will give you more options if you fight it.
- Damage reduced from 80 to 70
Developer Comments: Hanzo's Storm Arrows do too much damage, considering his other changes for example, the failure rate and the projectile speed. This damage reduction will give Hanzo's opponents a likely chance to react and fight against him while using Storm Arrows.
