Overwatch’s Year of the Rooster event is live

And you will be able to get those shiny new skins in the next three weeks.

After it leaked previously and then was teased in the official channels, Year of the Rooster event for Overwatch is now officially live. Let’s start with the proper trailer:

The event will last for three weeks and the end is scheduled for February 13th. During this time standard loot boxes are changed into Lunar Loot Boxes with new sprays, voice lines and especially skins for some of the characters (not all are receiving similar love from devs).

The most important part is the addition of the Capture the Flag mode in the form of a new Brawl. Titled Capture the Rooster, it asks you to behave both fast and highly defensively on the updated Lijiang Tower map. Unfortunately, Blizzard isn’t planning on adding it permanently to Quick Play.
