Blizzard Entertainment managed to organize an ongoing virtual birthday party with lots of surprises for their Overwatch fans. The more players immerse in their gameplay, the more chances they have to win fashionable collectibles. As of recently, the company announced another series of gifts as a way to end their special event in style. Therefore, all users who log in Overwatch between June 8 and June 12 will earn double XP.
The Double XP Bonus Applies to Almost All In-Game Achievements
On Tuesday, Blizzard Entertainment announced the arrival of a new special event to mark their one-year anniversary of its Overwatch production. As long as fans play their favorite game starting on Thursday throughout the weekend, they are going to win double XP. The new time-limited feature will be active on Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 platforms.
Nonetheless, this surprise will end the anniversary event for Overwatch. At the same time, players will have double chances to get their hands on the most wanted yet difficult to get items in the game, namely the legendary skins.
This new benefit will apply to all players for basically everything they accomplish while in the game. This includes the time they spend playing a match, getting a match to completion (be it a win or loss), playing as many consecutive matches as possible, winning medals and matches or backfilling a match.
Fans Can Also Buy Controllers with Special Overwatch Designs
The best part is that this prolonged experience bonus can be stacked with others. Therefore, if some players are having other IGR or group bonuses active, they will enjoy multiplicative XP. This opportunity is worth considering as this anniversary event has some time-limited items that are worth fighting for. However, there is an exception. Players will receive the same 1500 XP as before for their First Win of the Day.
For those who are really appreciating the spectacular work behind this production, they can purchase even material items for their real-life Overwatch collection. The company collaborated with ARTtitude for a new line of Xbox One and PS4 controllers. All of them come with some compelling designs inspired right from the game universe itself.
