Overwatch is once again celebrating the Chinese lunar new year, and that means a bevy of new skins coming for the event. This will be the Year of the Ox, and Blizzard has started debuting some of the new looks coming when the event launches on February 4.
So far we’ve gotten a detailed look at just one of the new skins, the Tiger Huntress for Ashe. It swaps out her usual Old West look for a Chinese huntress and gives her omnic assistant BOB a cool tiger look. A teaser for the Year of the Ox as a whole also showed D.Va debuting what may be a new intro, triggering fireworks by exploding her mech suit.
Blizzard usually doles out teasers for a handful of skins ahead of special events like this, leading up to release when we get to see them all. As always, you can obtain these special event skins and other cosmetics through randomized loot crates or purchasing them straight-up with your saved credits.
Last year’s Lunar New Year event also included a limited-time capture-the-flag mode. This event will overlap with BlizzCon Online, where Blizzard has promised more news on Overwatch 2. You can also pick up a special 30th anniversary pack with goodies from various Blizzard games including Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, and more.
