Overwatch will get a special "legendary" edition of the game for its two-year anniversary.

There aren't many details yet on the new edition of Overwatch, but Blizzard did say the digital package will launch on May 22. The Overwatch Legendary Edition will offer a total of 15 Legendary, Epic, and Origin skins with purchase. Blizzard released a similar package, Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition, last year with its one-year anniversary.

A price for the Overwatch Legendary Edition has not been announced, but the Game of the Year edition cost $60. (That edition gave players 10 Overwatch loot boxes and a few Overwatch Origin skins.)

The specific skins included in the offer haven't been named yet.

Overwatch's next event, Overwatch Anniversary, will kick off on May 22 and continue until June 11 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. A ton of new content will be introduced—11 new skins and a Deathmatch map—alongside older content from past events.

Those of you who haven't had a chance to try out Overwatch just yet will also be able to give it a go during the game's free weekend scheduled for May 25 to 28. All of Overwatch's 27 heroes and 18 maps will be available for free weekend players. Quick Play, the Arcade, and custom games are all open. (Competitive Play is never included in free weekends.) Should you choose to buy Overwatch in its regular form, or the legendary edition, free weekend progress will be transferred over.
