Overwatch's latest seasonal event is now live, offering the usual selection of skins to unlock and Event Brawls to take part in. The game's Lunar New Year 2022 event is back once more, this time with Legendary cosmetics for Mercy and Tracer, and Epic skins available for Ashe, Soldier:76, and Wrecking Ball.
As for the latest Event Brawls, you've Bounty Hunter and Capture the Flag Blitz to choose from, the former marking the first player to bag a kill as the Target and every other player as a Bounty Hunter, while the latter is a modified version of classic CTF. In Bounty Hunter killing the Target makes you the new Target, and in Capture the Flag Blitz, flags are much closer, found in the locations where overtime matches normally occur, and the first to capture six flags wins.
New Weekly Challenges will enable you to unlock limited-time Lunar New Year 2022 rewards, playing at least nine matches a week (a win counts as two games played) to earn player icons, sprays, and Epic skins. Week 1 will offer Prosperity Ashe, while Week 2 has the Auspicious Soldier:76 skin. Week 3 ends the event with Porcelain Wrecking Ball. Legendary skins on offer are the Seolbim Mercy skin and Nezha Tracer skin, pictured below.
Overwatch Year of the Tiger is live now on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and runs until 15th February.
