The last few months have been very exciting for us Overwatch fans. We had the awesome winter event that brought us Yeti Hunt and the return of the Mei Snowball game. The Overwatch League has put a ton of new eyes on Overwatch and just recently we got some cool new skins. Now though, it has officially been announced that we are once again getting a Lunar Event to celebrate Chinese New Year, the year of the dog.
So far all we know for sure is that the event comes to us on February the 8th, apart from that Blizzard have not revealed any other details, but I want to give my guess on what might be included in the Overwatch Year Of The Dog Event. Last year’s Lunar Event had a fun catch chickens mode so I would assume that this year the new game mode is going to revolve around dogs some way, what this is though I have no idea.
Of course, with any new event comes some new skins. I will be honest and say that out of all the events, last year’s Lunar Event probably had my least favorite skins of any event, but I will keep an open mind and hopefully, there will be a couple of skins for me. I have been quite lucky in the past with the events and usually end up with a couple of the event specific skins so if I can just get two during the whole event, I will consider that a win.
I think it is awesome that Blizzard keeps Overwatch fresh by adding new events every few months. This year’s Overwatch Lunar Event, The Year Of The Dog is bound to be a lot of fun!
