Overwatch Year of the Rooster Skins
One of the best aspects of each Blizzard Overwatch event are the various skins that players can acquire via opening loot boxes that they have either earned or purchased in-game. With the Year of the Rooster event in full swing, Blizzard has brought 13 new skins for players to pick and choose from. Of these 13 new skins, 7 of them are legendary with almost every tank getting a different overlay which is a first for a holiday event. There are also some rare skins that simply use the red, gold, and black color pallet with small designs on either their armor or weapons.
You can also purchase these Overwatch Year of the Rooster skins for either 750 gold or 3,000 gold depending on what their rarity consists of. What’s interesting is that 4 of the core alternate outfits promoted in this Overwatch event are based off characters in the novel Journey to the West which was first published in 1592. Here are all thirteen Year of the Rooster skins that are brand new to Overwatch.
After the uproar the community had over Mei’s underwhelming legendary skin during the Winter Event, it appears Blizzard has redeemed themselves with this adorable outfit for everyone’s favorite ice throwing defender.
Mei – Chang’e
This is the second new legendary skin for Mei and it’s simply a color pallet swap of her Luna skin. Though this one is quite adorable if you aren’t a fan of the color pallet featured in Year of the Rooster.
