Blizzard has confirmed that after last year’s successful Lunar Near Year event, they’re bringing it back this year. It’ll begin a little later than last year (January 24th) on February 9th and focus on Year of the Dog instead of year of the Rooster.
Whilst Blizzard hasn’t detailed last year’s event, last years had a brand new Arcade mode that replaced Mystery Dual and took place on a reskinned map. There were two specific achievements that were tied to this. There were also 124 special Year of the Rooster items, so there’s definitely going to be a tonne this year.
We’ll keep you posted on what this new Overwatch event entails.
