Is everyone looking forward to some new modes and to hunt some new skins in Overwatch?

The most recent seasonal event we had in Blizzard’s Overwatch was Christmas. Though I have to point out that the Halloween special was better, it still wasn’t too bad.

Some are already wondering what is the next seasonal event in the game, with speculation running rampant for Valentine’s Day. Turns out, we’re having a Chinese New Year seasonal event!


Overwatch: Celebrating the Year of the Rooster

Yes, you’ve read that right. We’re having a Chinese New Year seasonal event in Overwatch, celebrating the Year of the Co…Rooster  😛

Not much info about the seasonal event have been officially released yet but Blizzard did tease some new skins. Most prominent here being Mei, which looks kinda sad compared to past special skins but I’m not complaining.


Overwatch’s D.Va is apparently also getting a new skin as part of the Year of the Rooster, according to the game’s Korean Twitter account.

According to Polygon, A Blizzard spokesperson confirmed that Overwatch’s Year of the Rooster event will be similar in scope to previous game events, such as Halloween Terror and Winter Wonderland. Those limited-time events included new character skins, sprays, voice lines, emotes and other cosmetic items. They also featured new gameplay modes, like Junkenstein’s Revenge and Mei’s Snowball Offensive.


Pokdepinion: They need to have another PvE mode, just like Junkenstein’s Revenge. There’s just something about fighting hordes of enemies with some teammates in Overwatch feeling very fun. Maybe it’s because I got so used to Quick Play and Competitive that I just needed something fresh but still.

This might be a good time to bring back the original Hanzo concept as a boss character for that PvE mode. I mean come on, a mix of Hanzo/Genji in one character? That’s superbly imbalanced, but perfect for a boss character.
