Overwatch Year of the Rooster event starts tomorrow, 24th January 2017


The new Overwatch event starts tomorrow and a new game mode and hero skins have leaked. The Year of the Rooster event is rumored to bring new skins for Winston, Mei, Zenyatta, Mercy, Symmetera, Tracer and Reinhardt.

A video was leaked online with a teaser for the event. Check it out below:

New game mode, capture the flag?

Because a Blizzard employee revealed that this event will be similar in scope to other previous events such as the Winter and Halloween ones we can expect a new game mode. That mode appears to be some form of capture the flag.

I don’t know about you but if the new mode does turn out to be capture the flag, I can’t wait to see what map it will be on and what the meta will be. Surely high mobility heros will dominate unless they are balanced for in the game mode itself. Imagine playing Sombra, grabbing the flag and teleporting back to base instantly. There will have to be balances around stuff like that for the game mode to be fun.

Update: The map is probably Hanamura

Update 2: The Event is out!
