Overwatch Holding A Double-XP Weekend To Close Out Its Anniversary Event

Still don't have all those Overwatch skins? Need a little boost to try and get everything you possibly can? Blizzard is giving you a chance to make it happen in the fastest way possible without giving you a total path to success. Over the next few days, to wrap up the Anniversary event, Overwatch will be having a Double-XP weekend.


Starting on Thursday, June 8th at 5 p.m. PDT across all consoles and PC, you'll be able to earn double the XP by playing any match type and will be earned in almost every way possible. This means that even if you're on a losing team and you only manage to rack up 150 points total by sitting around and doing nothing, the game will still double it and give you 300. This will be stacked up with group and internet game room bonuses but will not change the 1500 you get for the "First Win Of The Day."

Those of you who are mad that the event was too short to do anything have one last-ditch effort to claim as much as you can. I personally still want the Mei beekeeper outfit, as the game has seen fit to drop me 50 sprays and the same Lucio jazz suit three times. Of course, we could all move to China for a few months where the company is apparently planning to let their market buy in-game credits with real money, which solves 100 different problems way too late for any of us. The entire event will end on Monday, June 12th at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
