As we approach Overwatch 2's Beta, Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the plans for Overwatch events in 2022.

Instead of the usual events such as the Summer Games, Winter Wonderland, and others, they are now being replaced by the Anniversary Remix!

This means that some fan-favorite events Overwatch players know and love will be "remixed" and separated into three different volumes in a three-part event.

The first part of the upcoming event will be Anniversary Remix: Volume 1, which will take over Overwatch's annual celebration of its release. Here's what we know's in store across new Challenges, Skins, and more this year, and when things finally kick off!

LATEST: Counting Down to Overwatch Anniversary Remix Volume 1

We finally have a release date for Volume 1 of the Overwatch Anniversary Remix event, and it's coming very soon!

Volume 1 of the event will be live on April 5th, and we expect like most Overwatch events before it, it will go live at 2pm EST.

Follow along with our countdown to the event where we cover all the latest news up to launch here.

Overwatch Anniversary Remix Event Start Date

Overwatch Anniversary Remix will begin with Volume 1, which starts on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, and will run to Tuesday, April 25, 2022.

No start time has been announced but based on past events, we can expect Volume 1 with all of its challenges and skins to be available at 2 pm EST.

Volume 1 Game Modes

Seasonal brawls will be making a return with the Anniversary Remix Event. Each day, a new seasonal brawl will be available in arcade mode.

Volume 1 Skins

Apart from players being able to unlock any previous skins from the previous event, they will also be able to access "remixed" versions of some of the game's most-used skins.

A total of six old skins are getting makeovers for each volume and thanks to Overwatch source "OverwatchNaeri", players have been given a first look at what Volume 1's skins have to offer.

As seen in the pictures, some of Overwatch's most iconic heroes such as Mercy, D.Va and Genji will be amongst the first to have revamped skins.

All of these "remixed" Legendary skins will be available when Volume 1 goes live. Here is the list.

  • Demon Genji
  • Evermore Reaper
  • Mage Mercy
  • Steelhardt Reinhardt
  • White Cat D.VA
  • Zealot Zenyatta
