Overwatch Year of the Rooster Event Now Live

Overwatch Year of the Rooster Event Now Live

Blizzard has unleashed their newest Overwatch event, Year of the Rooster on the masses. It is now live for players on all platforms and runs until February 13th.

For the next three weeks, players will have the chance to collect over 100 commemorative cosmetic items, enjoy a firefight beneath some fireworks on Lijiang Tower, and work together to capture the flag in Overwatch’s newest brawl mode.

Year of the Rooster Event Details

Here’s the details of what the event brings:

  • Lunar Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from the Year of the Rooster collection of cosmetics
  • New Brawl Mode: 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 to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.

You can always count on Blizzard to keep things fresh for players. See you on the battlefield!
