Overwatch Will Celebrate Chinese New Year For Its Next Seasonal Event

It is going to take a lot more than new skins to get me hyped, but while Blizzard hasn’t gone into specifics, I think it’s safe to assume there will be other stuff to look forward to like new themed loot boxes and at least one unique brawl event. We do have a peek at what the new outfits may look like here. What's your Chinese Zodiac animal sign, anyway? I’m a...pig.

Overwatch’s next seasonal event looks like it will be themed around the Chinese New Year (or Spring Festival), according to a tweet from the game’s official account. Overwatch’s Year of the Rooster event will kick off next Tuesday, Jan. 24, a few days ahead of Chinese New Year. While Blizzard didn’t provide much in the way of detail on Overwatch’s next event, it did include a tease of a much-needed new character skin: something new for climatologist Mei to wear. Players will be able to admire her new duds as they stand in front of her, frozen and screaming in frustration as they welcome a sharpened icicle into their skull.
