Blizzard is Teasing New Overwatch Year of the Pig Skins


Quote:
It's time for another seasonal event in Overwatch: the Lunar New Year and the start of the Year of the Pig. And just like every event in Overwatch, it's all about the skins: Blizzard uses seasonal events as opportunities to drop elaborate new outfits, and it's already showing off some of what we'll be seeing when the event starts. Both Chinese literature and video game fans will likely recognize what the designers are doing with this one.

Take note: this is not a Dynasty Warriors-themed event. While KOEI's excellent action series is probably most gamers' primary reference point for these characters, it's not where they originate. Dynasty Warriors and these event skins come from The Romance of The Three Kingdoms, a 14th-century Chinese novel about the warring states period that's seen no shortage of film and video game adaptation.

Blizzard is teasing one skin a day until the event starts on January 24.

These skins aren't that great. The Halloween stuff is way better. The Winter stuff was better. I think I only got one Winter skin in a free chest. I don't really play, I just log in when they have these events to see what I get for free. LOL.

Haven't touched the game in months. Matchmaking and balance still as good as ever?
