This year’s Overwatch Lunar New Year event kicks off on 24 Jan

Overwatch - 2019 Year Of The Pig

Are you ready to go Whole Hog? Yes? No? Maybe?

Well, even if you aren’t a Roadhog player, the hook-tossing piggy may just take centre stage next month. Overwatch‘s 2019 Lunar New Year event, “The Year of the Pig”, starts 24 Jan and runs all the way till 18 Feb. Blizzard hasn’t released a full trailer but they do have a 10-second teaser up on Twitter.

Like most festival events, The Year of the Pig will come with it’s own set of event-limited skins, sprays, and voice lines. Roster-wise, we’ve also had Ashe and Wrecking Ball joining the crew in recent months, so they might be getting something too!

Oh, and if you haven’t stopped by recently, Overwatch currently has an Epic skin for Ana up for grabs. To acquire the limited-edition “Bastet” skin, all you need to do is to win nine multiplayer matches, whether that’s on Quick Play, Arcade, or Competitive modes. There are other rewards at the 3-win and 6-win checkpoints as well, which are all pretty cool if I do say so myself. Go get ’em!
