In some rather different news, Activision Blizzard’s critically acclaimed Overwatch title is hosting it’s 2019 Lunar New Year Event, and to celebrate the characters of the game are all receiving skins based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
For those of you who enjoy the shooter, or are just interested in seeing our favourite Three Kingdom characters getting more representation, then this event is for you!
The Lunar New Year event itself runs from January 24th until February 18th. During this time you will be able to earn these Three Kingdoms based skins (alongside last year event’s skins as well). You can see the currently revealed skins below, and they do look pretty spiffy sporting these looks:
As you can see, there is Hanzo cosplaying as Huang Zhong, Reaper cosplaying Lu Bu, Reinhardt cosplaying Guan Yu and Torbjorn cosplaying Zhang Fei. More skins will be revealed and available throughout the event.
