Overwatch’s Year of the Dog Event is Now Live
There are over 50 new seasonal items for players to unlock, including a variety of legendary skins, as well as gear from last year’s Lunar New Year event, which you can acquire at reduced prices.
Along with the new skins for characters such as McCree, Genji, Mercy, Pharah, and more, the event itself will also include a new Thailand-inspired map called Ayutthaya, a new look for Lijiang Tower to celebrate the holiday, and an updated version of the game’s Capture the Flag mode. The skins from last year’s Year of the Rooster event will also be available at discounted rates for players to pick up.
Capture the Flag, called Capture the Rooster last year, is returning to Overwatch with a series of updates designed to balance the game mode. Blizzard also launched a brand-new map specifically for Capture the Flag, called Ayutthaya. The map, which is based on Thailand, is the first created just for the mode, and it’s come at a good time, as competitive Capture the Flag will debut for a four-week season alongside the event.
Players that complete their Capture the Flag placement matches will receive a special spray. Those who earn a top 500 spot will get an even more special spray and a player icon.
Outside of the event, Blizzard has pushed live a bunch of bug fixes and interface adjustments. Most notably, a new Doomfist buff is skipping the PTR testing phase and going straight into the game. His Hand Cannon has had its damaged reduced from 11 to six, with the number of bullets fired increased from six to 11. The spread pattern should feel more consistent with these adjustments.
Overwatch is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the game’s new Chinese New Year event running now through March 5th, 2018.
