Overwatch Year of the Rooster event trailer debuts
Overwatch‘s Lunar New Year celebrations have officially begun and for the next three weeks players will have the chance to collect over 100 themed cosmetic items, enjoy a firefight beneath some fireworks on Lijiang Tower, and work together to capture the flag in Overwatch‘s newest brawl mode! Check out the trailer for Overwatch Year of the Rooster below!
Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with special Lunar Loot Boxes—and they’re packed with one heck of a (primal) punch, including new skins like Palanquin D.Va and Wukong Winston.
As with previous events, Lunar Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our Year of the Rooster collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more. While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these customization options in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration. Once you’ve unlocked an item, it will be yours forever, which means you can celebrate the Year of the Rooster all year-round. The collection will return to the vault on February 13, however, so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and see what good fortune might await before it’s too late!
A new brawl has also been released with the event with Capture the Rooster, Overwatch‘s take on Capture the Flag! 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 construct a lineup that’s simultaneously built for offensive speed and defensive stability.
Blizzard‘s Overwatch Year of the Rooster is live right now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
