Year of the Rooster Items
You’ll find that this patch has a lot of awesome new skins, emotes, highlight intros, and more! I know that a lot of the content was leaked early but it’s still SOOO GOOD to see all these patched in! Just like before, these items are still purchasable with in-game gold.
To kick off the Chinese New Year right, we all get a FREE Lucky Lunar Loot Box! Be sure to open it and see if you got one of the new items you like!
New Brawl – Capture the Rooster
Capture the Rooster is your typical Capture the Flag Mode. Teams attempt to secure the enemy flag while the other does the same. It gets really chaotic so a good line-up is definitely key. If you want to hear more about the new brawl, here’s Jeff Kaplan talking about Capture the Rooster!
So Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Remember, the event only lasts from JANUARY 24 – FEBRUARY 13 so be sure to make the most of it! Prosperity and Legendary Skins to all!
