Winter Wonderland is nothing greater than a distant reminiscence, and that may solely imply one factor for Overwatch gamers: it is virtually time for the Lunar New 12 months 2019 occasion. In case your checking account feels decidedly mild on credit this time of 12 months, I am proper there with you. Impulse purchases received me once more.
The following Overwatch occasion, a celebration of the 12 months of the Pig, will kick off in-game on January 24, 2019. As somebody who splits their tank time 50/50 between Orisa and Roadhog, I will must be in prime kind. Miss one apparent hook and immediately you have received 5 teammates staring daggers.
The expectation for Lunar New 12 months 2019 is skins, skins, and extra skins, with a shiny new Overwatch map hopefully on the horizon. Something past cosmetics and steadiness modifications will likely be a pleasant shock.

Final 12 months’s occasion gave us skins like Baihu Genji, Black Lily Widowmaker, Qinglong Pharah, and Zhuque Mercy, so in the event you favored any of these seems to be, you will have an opportunity to choose them up at cheaper costs this time round. I’ve had my eye on Xuanwu Zarya since her debut. That is all I would like proper now.
