As you've probably come to expect, Overwatch will celebrate the Year of the Rat, and Blizzard has confirmed that the event begins on January 16.

This year the new game mode is CFT Blitz, a modified version of Capture the Flag. Overwatch was released in 2016 and has remained a popular game in the years since; the second iteration of the title was recently released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Items you missed during last year's event are also available to unlock for a discounted credit price.

The Lunar New Year 2020 event has kicked off in Overwatch.

Along with these, Legendary skins such as Opera Brigitte, Face-Changer Sombra, Mask Dancer Moira, and Samul Nori Lucio can be earned via loot boxes or purchased with in-game currency.

As previously stated, Overwatch's Lunar New Year event for 2020 runs from January 16 to February 5, giving players just over 2 weeks to collect all of the cosmetics and skins they want. This time out, the flags are closer than before at the locations overtime games go to. Launch an all-out offensive against the enemy to snatch their flag as many times as possible-may fortune favor your team! Part of the magic of the hero's new skin, as one Redditor by the name of /u/Owlero spotted, is that her gun changes alongside her mask.

Other unlockable rewards include a Jingang Doomfist player icon, which is given for winning three games, and the Focus Doomfist spray, which is given for winning 6 games. Each week will bring in new rewards for players.
