Keeping with their recent holiday event routine, Blizzard launches a new holiday event for the Chinese New Year. Welcome to the Year of the Rooster (Event)!
The event is a bit shorter than previous ones (Halloween and Christmas), and will run from January 24- February 13. Be sure to get in on the action and pick up all new skins, emotes, sprays, and more. The skins for this event appear to be the best ones yet, keeping with Asian influences, which play into the history of certain heroes (Mei, Zenyatta, D.va).
Maps will have Year of the Rooster stylings for the event, and loot boxes will appear as firework bundles.
The event also welcomes a new brawl style with a capture the flag, a departure from the current playing styles. Many look forward to the new strategies that this map and style will offer.
