Starting today and running until February 5, Overwatch is celebrating the Lunar New Year with another in-game event. This year is the Year of the Rat, and the Chinese New Year falls on January 25th, right in the middle of the event.
So far, @PlayOverwatch has only teased a few new Legendary skins from the update. Check out the new Sombra skin below:
Twitter user @OverwatchNaeri has also posted a series of screencaps that claim to show new skins for a number of other heroes. Those tweets are below:
There isn’t much more to know about the event, given that it was only announced yesterday. However, it would be surprising if there wasn’t a limited-time game mode made available in the game’s arcade mode. Last year, a Capture the Flag variant of Busan was made available for the event.
Also, if it follows the trends of previous events, then all returning skins will be available at a lower price. Not to mention, there will most-likely be a number of voice lines, emotes, and character sprays to accompany the skins.
Judging by past events, the Lunar New Year update is most likely to go live around 18:00 GMT.
