The heroes of Overwatch and the developers from Blizzard are preparing for a returning Overwatch event. Lunar New Year 2021 will be starting on February 4th and running for three weeks.
“It’s time to charge into the fray and celebrate the return of Overwatch Lunar New Year with festive cosmetics, weekly rewards, and a new brawl that will put your skill as an outlaw to the test: Bounty Hunter! To commemorate the Year of the Ox, we’re bringing a slew of rich new rewards for you to unlock. Flit around the battlefield as Kkachi Echo, light up your enemies as Dragonfire Bastion, sic a beastly B.O.B. on unsuspecting enemies as Tiger Huntress Ashe, and more!”
Celebrate the event with the special Lunar Loot Boxes, filled with new skins, emotes, highlights, player icons, sprays, voice lines, and more. Items you missed during last year’s event are also available to unlock for a discounted credit price. The event will only run through February 25th, so don’t lose your chance at cool event-themed collectibles!
Ready for the fireworks? 🎆
