It’s been revealed that Overwatch will finish the anniversary event with a bang, or more specifically, with a double XP weekend. All players who log in this weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One will receive double experience.
This bonus will apply to nearly all sources of in-game XP, including:
- Time spent in a match
- Completing a match
- Completing consecutive matches
- Winning a match
- Backfilling a match in progress
- Earning medals
It will also stack multiplicatively with existing group and IGR bonuses. The only experience it will not affect is your First Win of the Day bonus—which will remain at 1500 XP.
This bonus experience period begins in all regions across all platforms on Thursday, June 8 at 5:00 p.m. PDT (or Friday, June 9 at 00:00 UTC) and ends on Monday, June 12 at 11:59 p.m. PDT (or Tuesday, June 13 at 06:59 UTC).
