Celebrate the Lunar New Year in Overwatch with new rewards for a limited time

Blizzard has announced the celebration for the Year of the Rat in Overwatch is now live. The celebration for the Lunar New Year will run from January 16 to February 6 on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

Get ready to ring in the 2020 Lunar New Year with more seasonal items, exciting weekly challenges and rewards, and the new brawl, Capture the Flag Blitz. We’re commemorating the Year of the Rat with an abundance of new skins, highlight intros, emotes, and sprays for players to unlock. Fly a delightful kite as Bastion, savor some hot soup with Baptiste, or show your Lunar New Year spirit with new legendary skins like Opera Brigitte, Face Changer Sombra, Mask Dancer Moira, and Samul Nori Lúcio.


  • Capture the Flag returns to the Arcade for Lunar New Year!
  • CTF Blitz is a modified version of Capture the Flag we’re introducing with the Lunar patch this year.
