Overwatch double XP weekend following anniversary event

Blizzard has announced that the Overwatch Anniversary Event will be concluding with a bang. From June 8 to June 12, players will receive double XP for nearly everything done in-game. This includes:

  • Time spent in a match
  • Completing a match
  • Completing consecutive matches
  • Winning a match
  • Backfilling a match in progress
  • Earning medals

The earnings don’t end there, though. The double XP will “stack multiplicatively with existing group and IGR bonuses.” So, if you’re looking to gain some serious experience, now is the time.

It should note that the only exception to the double XP rule is the First Win of the Day bonus, which will remain at 1500 XP.

The event runs from 5 pm PT on June 8 and ends at midnight on June 12. You can download Overwatch here.
