Chinese New Year is upon us and you better believe that some of our favourite video games are celebrating it too. The Overwatch Year Of The Pig celebration has finally started, getting into the festive mood of the Lunar New Year. Overwatch has been around long enough to have it's own yearly traditions, so we're excited to see some of the old and new additions to the game.
The main treat is the new costumes available for the various heroes and villains of Overwatch. The new skins based on the Romance Of The Three Kingdoms are an instant classic and are certainly going to be fun to unlock at this time of year. This year unlock new legendary skins like Lü Bu Reaper, Guan Yu Reinhardt, Zhuge Liang Zenyatta, Hong Gildong Tracer, Zhang Fei Torbjorn and Huang Zhong Hanzo. Don’t forget to collect two new epic skins Sanye Orisa and General Brigitte. Previous costumes based on Journey To The West and more traditional Chinese clothing are also making a return at this time of year.
Capture The Flag in the Busan map will be one of the exclusive modes for this festive season, as well as the return of our previous Lunar New Year themed maps: Ayutthaya and Lijang Tower. Along with the hundreds of other cosmetic items you can unlock from the event, you're definitely bound to have a great time.
But the greatest gift Blizzard is giving to their fans is with a Overwatch Fan Art Contest: Hero Skin Design.
