New Overwatch Skins, Map, And Mode Shown In Another Leaked Video

Check out the new skins and Capture the Flag mode below.


Another trailer for Overwatch's upcoming Chinese New Year event has leaked online, showing off some of the new content that will be introduced to Blizzard's team-based multiplayer shooter as part of an update.

The video shows new looks for various heroes; Junkrat is armed with fireworks, Symmetra is wearing a cheongsam, Tracer has flower decals on her outfit, and Bastion's bird companion Ganymede has been reskinned to look like a little rooster.

Mei, Mercy, Winston, Zenyatta, Roadhog, and Reinhardt's new outfits are also shown, as are new emotes, sprays, and a festive version of the Lijiang Tower map. Check it all out in the video above or the screenshot gallery below.

The video also seems to confirm a new Capture the Flag mode, which looks to be called Capture the Rooster. As you can imagine, tasks players with securing the opposing team's flag--which is adorned with said rooster--and then bringing it back to their spawn point.

Blizzard has not yet officially confirmed all the new content that's included in Overwatch's Chinese New Year Event, but various leaks have showed off what seems like the majority of it. New limited edition skins emerged on January 23, followed by more details and video of the new Capture the Flag mode.

Although Year of the Rooster is the next Overwatch event, leaks have also indicated the possibility of a Valentine's Day event for February.
