Overwatch Celebrates the Year of the Rooster

Drop your roosters and grab your socks, as Blizzard announces that the Year of the Rooster celebration is now live in Overwatch. This is a timed event that includes the opportunity to collect over 100 cosmetic items, a special theme for Lijang Tower, and a special capture the rooster brawl. They also offer this presentation for the occasion called "Winston's Journey to the West." This trailer shows off the lunar festival festivities, and here's word:
Good Luck and Great Fortune Await
Starting today, our customary Loot Boxes have been replaced with our lucky Lunar Loot Boxes—and they’re packed with one heck of a (primal) punch, including new skins like Palanquin D.Va and Wukong Winston!

As with previous events, Lunar Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our Year of the Rooster collection—including player icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more. While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these customization options in the Hero Gallery for credits throughout the event’s duration.

Once you've unlocked an item, it will be yours forever, which means you can celebrate the Year of the Rooster all year-round. The collection will return to the vault on February 13, however, so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and see what good fortune might await before it’s too late!

Capture the Rooster
No event would be complete without a first-class brawl, and for the Year of the Rooster we took a cue from tradition and are introducing an Overwatch take on a true competitive gaming staple: Capture the Flag.

In Capture the Rooster, teams will face off on Lijiang Tower, attempting to secure the enemy flag while the opposing team does the same. In this fast-paced brawl, players will need to get creative with their team compositions as they attempt to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.

Meanwhile, the new mode is laughable. Lacks all the drama and tension that CTF should have...

Leave it to Blizzard to fuck up CTF. A timer to pick up the flag? Really?
