Overwatch Lunar New Year Event Returns In February 8

Blizzard is ensuring the Overwatch seasonal events come around annually with the second annual Lunar New Year event, beginning February 8.

As this is the year of the dog, a new dog-based logo has appeared. That and the date are currently the only things known about the annual event, but every other returning Overwatch event has added new costumes and modes. Additionally, they have brought back the costumes from the previous year, so people who missed out can get another shot at buying them.

Blizzard also added 100 new cosmetic items – skins, emotes, highlight reels, and skins – last week to the normal lootboxes.

Our Take
It's hard to get excited until they show off new costumes, but last year's were pretty good, so hopefully they can spread the variety around with the same level of quality.
