It’s the sixth anniversary of Overwatch, and we are expanding the annual event into a three-volume series.

We are also bringing back past weekly challenges in case you missed out on these stylish skins: Dr. Ziegler Mercy, Mardi Gras Ashe, and Maestro Sigma. Play Overwatch Remix: Vol. 2 May 17 – June 7 to secure these legendary skins, earn weekly rewards, and play all of your favorite seasonal brawls.
