Overwatch Season 5 begins this week


At 8PM ET on May 31

In case you haven't heard, Overwatch Season 4 has ended its competitive run, and now has its sights set on Season 5. That begins on May 31 at 8PM ET, at which point you'll have roughly three months to work your way up the ranks to earn more CP to buy golden weapons (or, if you're really skilled, into the top 500 to earn exclusive sprays and icons).

This is all running concurrently with Overwatch's anniversary event, which is live until June 12. Events withstanding, I love going back to the game every so often and messing around -- rounds end so quickly compared to a lot of other shooters, and even a little progress toward another loot box is worth it.

Also, not having to pay for addons or DLC every few months is a nice perk.
