Blizzard has launched the latest seasonal event for Overwatch, and players can now obtain “Lunar” Loot Boxes containing special “Year of the Rooster” items such as Character Skins, Player Icons, Sprays, Victory Poses, Emotes, Highlight Intros, and more. According to Blizzard, dedicated players will be able to discover more than 100 new cosmetic items during the “Year of the Rooster” event.
In addition to outfitting your favorite characters in new gear, from now until February 13, Overwatch players will also be able to compete in a brand new game mode… Capture the Rooster.
In Capture the Rooster, teams will face off on Lijiang Tower, attempting to secure the enemy flag while the opposing team does the same. In this fast-paced brawl, players will need to get creative with their team compositions as they attempt to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.
More information about the “Year of the Rooster” event can be uncovered at Overwatch’s official website or by watching the trailer above. You can also hear Game Director Jeff Kaplan’s thoughts on Capture the Rooster in the latest Overwatch Developer Update, which is available after the break.
