Overwatch's 'Year Of The Dog' Lunar Event Kicks Off February 8

1-DSC_5665

Details about the event are a bit scarce at this point, but given that last year saw Blizzard introduce a "Capture the Rooster" event, we expect that this year will also bring about certain dog-specific game modes. A capture-the-flag mode was also added in Lijiang Tower, and Blizzard's Twitter reply seems to imply we'll be able to play it again this year. Now it looks like 2018's Lunar event is back and has been announced for the 8th of February. "Lunar New Year returns February 8".

Last year, Blizzard marked the coming of the Lunar New Year with the Year of the Rooster event in Overwatch.

"Around the New Year everything is about wishing prosperity, good fortune, good luck and long life to your loved ones and the ones around you", explains Sean Tang, 32, a partner at Pinch Chinese. It was featured in last year's rooster Lunar New Year, and it's likely content will carry over into next week's event.

And if it's anything like previous Overwatch events, returning skins will be available at a cheaper price. This is simply acting as a "Save the Date" for the Overwatch fan base. Personally I'm hoping they surprise us with a new game mode, but I'll be glad to see a repeat of new skins, emotes and sprays.

"With this change he can still dish out similar damage but he must now be more accurate with his tosses".
