Overwatch Kicks Off Lunar New Year 2020 Event

Try your hand at CTF Blitz in the Overwatch Lunar New Year event

The Lunar New Year event has returned to Blizzard Entertainment's multiplayer shooter Overwatch with new skins and a twist on one of the game's modes.

The Party Flex Role Queue has moved on from the game's PTR since last week, to be replaced with some hero updates. And because the Rat marks the beginning of a new turn around the zodiac's wheel, this Lunar New Year also symbolizes the dawn of a new day. Overwatch was released in 2016 and has remained a popular game in the years since; the second iteration of the title was recently released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

As always, the new skins look fantastic, and out of the seven, my personal favorites have got to be Sombra's Face Changer ad Brigitte's Opera.

This year the new game mode is CFT Blitz, a modified version of Capture the Flag.

The event also adds new skins, highlight intros, emotes, and sprays that can be unlocked through loot boxes and earned through challenges.

The stakes have been raised in this new way to play Capture the Flag. In this mode, flags are placed much closer than usual and players will need to capture 6 flags instead of three.

The Lunar New Year event for Overwatch is now live and ends on February 5. Players can launch an all-out offensive against the enemy to snatch their flag. Each week will bring in new rewards for players.

The event is free to attend however registration, for purposes of head count, is requested and available by calling the Library at 908-273-0350, ext. The list of rewards for each week have been detailed below.
