Get ready for the Overwatch 2 Lunar New Year 2023 Event to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit! Featuring classic Capture the Flag brawls, some new login rewards, twitch drops and fresh surprises, here’s everything to enjoy today, January 17th for this year’s event.
Hop into Capture the Flag (CtF), Capture the Flag Blitz and Bounty Hunter today. These unique brawls take a twist on the classic PvP game modes with some new objectives. If you’re feeling confident, you can even try the Competitive CtF mode. Playing any of these game modes will provide extra Battle Pass XP, too. The Lijiang Tower map will also be adorned from its control centre down to the night market, as with previous events celebrating the Lunar New Year. Don’t forget to take a second to appreciate the beautiful fireworks displays!
