Overwatch Leaked Video Suggests New Mode, Shows More Of Chinese New Year Event

Happy New Year!


A new leaked video suggests Overwatch's upcoming Chinese New Year event will include a new mode: Capture the Flag.

The video, leaked on Chinese social media site Weibo, appears to show the new mode along with a bunch of new skins. Check out the trailer for yourself here (via Reddit user tf2manu994).

New limited edition skins had previously emerged via a leaked image online, after developer Blizzard announced the Year of the Rooster event last week. Despite the rumors, we know little else about the event, other than its launch date: January 24.

A Blizzard spokesperson told Polygon that the Year of the Rooster event will be similar in scope to past events, like those themed around Halloween and Christmas.

Year of the Rooster may not be Overwatch's only new event coming in the next month, as a leak pointed to the possibility of Valentine's Day event for February... maybe.

In other Overwatch news, Blizzard has explained its recent nerf of D.Va, saying "her damage per shot is generally more consistent [now]." The game's director is due to give a speech about Overwatch's development soon, while Blizzard has also said it may reward players for participating in the public test realm in the future.
