The Overwatch Anniversary Event for 2020 is sure to be the event of the year, especially considering it might be the last one before Overwatch 2 drops. As such, fans are eager to get their hands on information concerning the upcoming content, especially cosmetic items.

Luckily for those who are over-eager, there was a leak on the Blizzard forums concerning the names of the skins for the event. While releasing the patch notes for an experimental card, the patch notes for May 19th were mistakenly posted, including the skin names.

The first thing to note is that May 19th is now officially confirmed to be the start date for the event, which is scheduled to run through until June 9th. It is also revealed that at least Reaper, Mercy, and Ashe will be receiving legendary skins this year.

The skin names revealed so far are the aforementioned Masquerade Reaper, Dragoon Mercy, and Little Red Ashe. Some epic skin names such as Carbon Fiber Sigma, Fleur de Lis Widowmaker, and Masked Man Mccree were also mentioned.

There are a couple of other tidbits to go over from this post. It seems that previous seasonal brawls will be returning for the duration of the event, with one featured brawl rotating every day. Additionally, as in past years, all skins from other events will be available for purchase with in-game currency.

Some other good news, the Blizzard team has also decided to officially release some information about the upcoming event, the first in the form of a teaser trailer.

The teaser showcases Roadhog dancing in what appears to be a new emote while cycling through some of his various skins already in the game. This has led to some speculation that the roster will be receiving a second round of dance emotes, or at least certain heroes will.

More importantly, however, an entire skin has been officially revealed by the Overwatch Team. The Little Red Ashe skin is absolutely stunning, and the grandma wolf Bob is not something fans knew that they needed.

It is good to see that Blizzard is not afraid to introduce some cosmetic items leaning towards the wacky humorous side of the spectrum. This leaked skin sets a high bar for the rest of the items on the leaked list, and luckily players don’t have too long to wait before jumping into the festivities on the 19th.

Hopefully, this high standard for cosmetic items will also extend to the game modes available. Overwatch has garnered a bit of a reputation for being all flash no substance when it comes to seasonal activities.
