Overwatch released on 24th May, 2016, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and Blizzard wants your help to celebrate the shooter’s three-year anniversary.

Blizzard is kicking off celebrations with a week-long free trial – just in case you’re not one of the 40 million players who’ve already signed up – as well as giving players the chance to acquire seasonal cosmetics they might have previously missed out on. Previous seasonable brawls will also be available on a daily basis, including those from last month’s now closed Storm Rising event – just jump into the Arcade to access them when they go live.

Blizzard’s also offering six new Legendary costumes – that’s the rarest kind you can get – and three not-quite-as-rare Epic ones. There’s also new dance emotes for Overwatch’s latest roster additions: Ashe, Baptiste, and Wrecking Ball. You’ll also get a free Legendary Loot Box if you log in during the celebration week, which guarantees you’ll snag at least one Legendary item (thanks, PC Gamer).
