Blizzard Entertainment’s seasonal Overwatch event, that celebrates the Year of the Rooster, has gone live.
The new Overwatch seasonal event in celebration of the Year of the Rooster adds a whole slew of new cosmetic items and even a new gameplay mode that might seem oddly familiar. The new cosmetic items, of which there are over a 100, will include new character skins, voice lines and emotes among other.
The new game mode called Capture the Rooster, is Overwatch’s take on the tried and tested Capture the Flag mode. The mode takes place on Lijang Tower and has players defending their team’s flag while trying to capture their opponents. It might sound simple but getting together a team with the right balance of defensive and offensive abilities can be tricky.
I for one can’t wait to give this mode ago, even if it is only to get some more awesome loot and skins for my characters. So, will you be returning to Overwatch for this event?
