Despite the recent news of Overwatch 2 not releasing this year, Blizzard has been giving its players a steady drip of new content, and if you’re ready for some fireworks, the Lunar New Year 2021 event is now live on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.

From February 5 – 26, participate in the event to take part in the new brawl called bounty hunter, as well as various new weekly challenges to satisfy your itch for new cosmetics.

Below are some of the details each of the new activities during the limited-time event:

Father. Gamer. Editor in Chief. Not a Trophy or Achievement hunter but plays games by the boatload! Would love to see a Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, Lufia, and/or Breath of Fire 2 remake done in his lifetime.
