Oink, oink, the well liked celebration of the lunar new year has arrived and to mark the occasion, Blizzard’s Overwatch game will be putting on many themed skins and events (such as themed maps) to add some worth to the annual celebrations.


Between now and Feb 18th, players have the chance to collect hundreds of themed seasonal cosmetic items, enjoy a festive Capture-the-Flag version of Busan, or welcome the return of our previous Lunar New Year-themed maps: such as Ayutthaya and the Lijang Tower.

Skins will be available in an abundance and these include legendary outfits based on famed characters such as Lü Bu Reaper, Guan Yu Reinhardt, Zhuge Liang Zenyatta, Hong Gildong Tracer, Zhang Fei Torbjörn, and Huang Zhong Hanzo. Don’t forget to also collect epic skins featuring Sanye Orisa and General Brigitte.

From us all at GameHype, happy lunar new year everybody. See you in Overwatch.
