They appear to be set in new areas of the existing Eichenwalde, Temple of Anubis, and Dorado maps.

The Anniversary event – celebrating the game’s first anniversary – will begin on May 23, alongside a new Game of the Year edition, and new items in standard loot boxes.

Overwatch anniversary skins, voice lines revealed

Blizzard also showed off a sneak peek of some of the new skins and voice lines coming during the event.

According to the Korean Overwatch Twitter account (tweet embedded above), four new skins will be available for Bastion, Pharah, Soldier, and Zayra. They seem to be along a futuristic theme.

Some of the new voice lines were also shared on Blizzard’s Facebook page (video embedded below), including most notably Symmetra referring to her turrents as a car wash:

Destiny 2 couldn’t run at 60FPS on PS4 Pro

Destiny 2 will run at 4K and 30 frames per second on the PlayStation 4 Pro because of CPU constraints.

“I don’t want people to continue to hope, we’re going to be matter-of-fact about that stuff.

“The PS4 Pro is super-powerful, but it couldn’t run our game at 60. Our game’s this rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking, etc. It wouldn’t run – not enough horsepower there yet.”

-Luke Smith, Destiny 2 director

Note: GameSentral will have a special GameSentral Rewind this weekend on Destiny 2.
