Overwatch Year of The Rooster / Chinese New Year and Korean New Year is confirmed as a NEW EVENT, with new skins! I take a look at the Mei and new Dva Skin that have been revealed, go through the lore and story of the holidays, and speculate on what else we might see in an Overwatch New Year’s Event! Sun Wukong Winston, maybe?
HYPE. On Twitter last night, Overwatch Year of The Rooster was announced! Overwatch Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year, or Korean New Year…whatever you call it, it’s coming Jan 24th! We’ve seen a new Mei and new D.va skin already in the twitter teasers, I’m sure more Year of The Rooster skins will come!
There’s a lot of history behind the holiday – I quickly analyse Mei and Dvas skins, explain Chinese New Year, the little I’ve found out about Korean New Year (please correct me Koreans!), the Chinese Zodiac Story and how it ties into The Year of The Rooster, and how it could show what skins we might get for other characters too! Sun Wukong Winston has some form in the game already. – Hammeh – Overwatch (FailCraft)
