Overwatch Year of the Rooster Event
Chinese New Year starts this Friday! So what does my favorite team based, multiplayer first person shooter game do? Creates special skins for the characters and a new game to play. Which is totally a bonus because I love playing Overwatch, and play it almost every day. Plus, I celebrate Chinese New Year so, it’s great that I get to also celebrate by playing Overwatch Year of the Rooster Event!
For one, the skins. I’m always excited when new skins come out. This time around, my favorite has to be Mei’s. It’s a cute little traditional Chinese outfit for New Years. I really hope it get it in a loot box. So far though, I got the Tracer’s and D.VA’s for this event. I’m excited to use D.VA’s.
On top of that, they have a not so friendly game of capture the flag, which you can play with others. If no one gets the flag though, you end in a draw. Mostly, I farm loot boxes during these events. Though I have to say that these outfits are so cute! Either one of the new Mei outfits that came out for the Overwatch Year of the Rooster event, is what I really want. I ready got D.Va’s in a loot box.
Plus they also have new skins for Winston and Roadhog, inspired by the story, Journey to the West. Journey to the West happens to be one of the four Chinese classic novels and the inspiration behind the anime’s Dragonball Z and Saiyuki. I’ve actually read part of this classic novel. It’s exciting that a video game can bring in some culture along with it in more ways than one.
Either way, I’m totally excited for this event.
