It is now unclear if all the Overwatch characters will be getting their own dancing emotes, or if only these four characters will be getting them.

Blizzard is following through on its promise to provide more information about the upcoming Overwatch Anniversary event, releasing three different teasers of new goodies for the game. The "Overwatch" anniversary event will run through June 12.

Blizzard also revealed that it will be adding new content into the standard loot boxes of Overwatch, including sitting and laughing emotes for Sombra and Orisa.

After showing off three new maps that are part of the event next week, Blizzard also teased some new skins, emotes, and voice lines across separate regional Overwatch social accounts.

Since it is "Overwatch's" one-year anniversary, Blizzard has now revealed some new stuff for the fans. According to Kaplan while speaking to the recent NY event audience, Blizzard is open to the idea to introduce some new cross-over skins from a number of other Blizzard's franchises.

Blizzard has also given fans a taste of the new voice lines that will be included in the May 23 update. We felt like, for our first year, it was really important not to do that stuff. "For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 24 heroes and 14 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade", said the blog post.

However, it looks like that may change in the future, as Kaplan continued: "One thing that's really fun about Blizzard games is celebrating other Blizzard games".

Players will also be able to level up fast, earn some loot boxes, and unlock various new customization options. During that time, the game will also have a free-to-play weekend from May 26 to 29.
