Overwatch Is Hosting a Double XP Event This Weekend

Overwatch is having another eventful weekend with its double XP event from June 8-12.

The good news is it's going out with a bang.

This should act as a nice boost for anyone still scrabbling to unlock any of the voice lines or skins exclusive in the Anniversary Loot Boxes during the event.

Asked about whether the dance emotes will becoming unlockable after the event, the official Overwatch Twitter account gave this reply: "The dance emotes are Overwatch Anniversary event items".

Overwatch fans seem to have been enjoying the Anniversary event, but it's coming to a close pretty soon.

While this latest news will prove disappointing for some, Blizzard have provided a spark of hope that things could change in the future. The law states that companies can not exclusively sell players virtual lottery tickets ( loot boxes) using in- game currency or real money and that actual probability of said boxes should be transparent to the players. To obtain enough credits (or coins, as we know them), a player would have to spend $875 (or buy 50 loot boxes 25 times) to have the credits banked purely through buying loot boxes. We had a really great discussion yesterday about the feedback we've been hearing this week.

As part of the Overwatch Anniversary event, Blizzard introduced 24 new Overwatch Dance Emotes, one for each of the game's 24 heroes. Your First Win of the Day will still only give you 1500 XP though. Check out the easy guide below to see when your region's double XP event starts. Blizzard announced today that Overwatch is hosting a double XP event June 8-12 on all platforms.
