Overwatch director, Jeff Kaplan, has repeatedly said that there are going to be many surprises in store for fans to look forward to and the most recent update is no exception. The Year of the Rooster Event celebrates the start of the Chinese New Year and with it, brings new skins, taunts, sprays among other new festive items. Take a look at the trailer below:

This marks Overwatch’s fourth major event and is planned to run from January 24 – February 13.

On top of all the extra goodies that you’ll likely spend countless hours grinding for, this event marks the first time that Blizzard has introduced a completely new mode to the game. Capture the Flag, or better yet, Capture the Rooster is exactly what you would expect from a CTF mode, albeit dressed in the charming colors of Overwatch. Although the mode isn’t sticking around for too long, the developers have discussed the possibility of making it more widely available in the future. In the most recent developer update, Jeff Kaplan explains the inner workings of bringing a mode like this to life while also touching on the meta of the game.
