Overwatch has seven skins for Lunar New Year 2020


Brigitte, Moira, Sombra, and more

Overwatch is ringing in the Year of the Rat with its Lunar New Year 2020 celebration. The event just went live across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and it's running until February 6.

In terms of character skins, there are seven legendaries and three epic outfits, the latter of which are unlockable through weekly challenges and don't need to be unboxed or purchased with in-game credits.

Legendary Skins

  • Opera Brigitte
  • Face Changer Sombra
  • Mask Dancer Moira
  • Samul Nori Lúcio

Weekly Challenges

  • Monk Doomfist (Win nine games between January 1623)
  • Ancient Bronze Winston (Win nine games between January 23–30)
  • Paper Cutting Wrecking Ball (Win nine games between January 30 and February 5) 

Beyond the traditional Capture the Flag mode, there's also a new variant called Capture the Flag Blitz. This mode bumps the flag count from three to six, and the flag locations aren't nearly as spread out.

It's not quite the Year of the (Junk)Rat, but he does have a gross new Feast intro.
