Overwatch has begun its annual Lunar New Year celebration to ring in the Year of the Ox. This year’s festivities feature new Legendary and Epic skins, new player icons and sprays, three weeks of new challenges, and a brand new Brawl!

From Thursday, February 4th to Thursday, February 25th, players can unlock all new and returning Lunar New Year skins and cosmetics, as well as participate in the new Bounty Hunter mode. In this new free-for-all style Brawl, the first player to get a kill is marked as a Target, while the rest of the lobby immediately becomes Bounty Hunters. Players earn extra points for killing the target, however landing the killing blow marks them as the new target.

 

 

Check out the all festivities in action, including the new skins and game mode in the trailer below:

 

 

Happy Lunar New Year!
