There is no word just yet on what’s included with the new Overwatch event. But the teaser video shows that Mei appears to be getting a new skin.
D.Va is also apparently getting a new skin for the event, if the teaser below from Overwatch’s Korean account is anything to go on.
A Blizzard spokesperson told Polygon that the Overwatch Year of the Rooster event is going to be similar to past events, like those themed around Halloween and Christmas, in terms of scope.
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.
