So we’re pretty used to seasonal Overwatch skins now right? You know, those ultra rare legendary skins that are timed exclusives? Every time they come around it feels like a sneaky play to get us to buy more loot boxes, but on the other hand, the costumes are fucking dope, so it’s a tough balancing act.
The latest seasonal even is celebrating Year of the Rooster, introducing new costumes for Mei, Junkrat, Winston, Zenyatta, Sombra, Tracer, Mercy, Bastion, Reinhardt and Roadhog.
Year of the Rooster also brings with it a new Brawl mode, Capture the Rooster, AKA Capture the flag, which sounds fantastic. Here’s Blizzard’s official description from their blog:
“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.”
You can also check out a video for the event below and gawk at the costumes some more:
Year of the Rooser will be running on Overwatch from January 24 until February 13.
