Overwatch has achieved an impressive feat: the game now has more than 40 million players, game director Jeff Kaplan revealed in a developer update today. The event that's starting on May 22 marks the two-year anniversary of Overwatch and will introduce new skins, a map, and much more.

A free-to-play weekend for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is also scheduled for May 25th-28th, which will give new players the opportunity to try out the full game, except for Competitive play, before taking the plunge. Without a doubt, this constant attention to details in the most recent patch and those before it have assisted in giving the game a solid reputation among fans, leading to its huge player base.

"Petra is lovely", Kaplan said during Wednesday's Developer Update video.

Overwatch and the Anniversary event will be playable during a Free Weekend, which will run from May 25 through May 29. For example, there is a mega health pack in the very center of the map in an area that becomes increasingly risky as the match goes on. There's parts of the map that are great for open, long-range heroes. This Anniversary Loot Box will always contain an anniversary item and also has a chance to contain another item from any of Overwatch's past seasonal events.

For those who have missed any of those aforementioned Overwatch events, look for all of the seasonal brawls and missions to make their return during the Overwatch Anniversary event.

Eight legendary Anniversary skins will be released with the event, and Kaplan hinted that a certain hero will be coming to the event in formal wear.
