The event that's starting on May 22 marks the two-year anniversary of Overwatch and will introduce new skins, a map, and much more. To celebrate, Blizzard are adding a ton of content into the game including 50 new items, a new map, game mode and more! Venom Soldier 76 is an Epic skin that replaces everyone's favorite shooter-dad with an imposing villainous look. Kaplan took that moment to drop the detail about the lofty new player count that includes more than 40 million active players. What we do know is the game has a LOT of players.

"Petra is attractive", Kaplan said during Wednesday's Developer Update video.

Packers Not Expected To Sign Dez Bryant
Green Bay did take three receivers in the draft, but letting the rookies sit behind Bryant for a year makes sense. Dez Bryant most infamous catch in his entire career was actually a non-catch that has been argued for years now.

STD Rate In California Hits New High: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis Worst Culprits
Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, and males account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases. The diagnosis rate for chlamydia was 552.1 cases per 100,000 Californians, compared to 497.3 per 100,000 nationwide.

Nawaz Sharif Did Not Say That Mumbai Attackers Were Pakistani, PM
Qureshi said the prime minister honestly tried to resolve issue; however, Nawaz Sharif rejected the NSC declaration. India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai.

Kaplan then moved on to discussing the new Overwatch map that Deathmatch players will get, a free-for-all map called Petra. "We think you'll find that very fun". There's parts of the map that are great for short-ranged heroes.

Overall, the Anniversary 2018 event for Overwatch sounds like it is shaping up to be one of the biggest seasonal events in the game to date. Past seasonal brawls are returning to the Arcade and will be rotated daily, including those found in Overwatch: Archives. Logging on during the event for the first time will also get you one Legendary lootbox which means you're guaranteed at least one legendary item (please let it be that awesome 1980s Zarya skin that I missed out on past year!). Tracer's new skin is an Epic-tier skin called Lightning Tracer, and it outfits the speedy time traveler with a new yellow suit.
