Overwatch's 'Year Of The Dog' Lunar New Year 2018 Event Is Live

Overwatch's 'Year Of The Dog' Lunar New Year 2018 Event Is Live

For those interested, the Year of the Dog event celebrating the Chinese New Year is going on now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players and allows players to earn legendary loot while enjoying the new aspects of the game.

With over half of the games roster getting new skins, there's a lot to unpack in Overwatch's newest event. "One side of the map is ancient and shows a temple that's very, very gorgeous and the other side is bright and lovely and very modern". It features two sides: one has an ancient temple and the other is modern, "bright and beautiful". However unlike past year, Blizzard announced that they will be releasing a map (based in Thailand) that has been created specifically for capture the flag.

Music plays while carrying the flag (how nice). When the match starts again, teams will be forced to play on a smaller ground. However, certain abilities that provide mobility or invulnerability, such as Winston's Leap, will not cause the flag to drop.

This means that the games will be fast paced and full of action, focusing on building a stronger offense. The developer has also announced that they have introduced some changes to the game's mode where games will no longer end in a tie, and that games that do end in a tie at the end of the timer will enter into a sudden-death mode.

There's also a whole new map designed specifically for the mode, but we'll get to that a bit later.

This year, the Year of the Dog event will run for an entire month and will also include a special competitive season of Capture the Flag.
