Here are all the new skins in Overwatch Year of the Rooster

See how the game's heroes dress to celebrate the Chinese New Year.


Blizzard's Year of the Roster seasonal event for Overwatch went live earlier today. As is tradition with seasonal-themed, all characters can be decked out in new duds. We've captured footage of each new outfit, which you can peruse in the video below.

      It's like WoW tier armor all over again. I should bet money that Mercy will be getting WoW priest tier 5 down the road.

      hmmm, do I want these enough to go play some Overwatch. I'd like the Mei and Dva, but having to get them in random draw boxes is no fun.

      Thanks for these! I don't play the game but Blizzard always tends to do top notch skins.

      Got Mercy (fantastic), Mei in white (should have been released last September!), Mercy highlight (awesome), D.Va (mech doesn't look as good in-game... possibly because the CTF maps are so dark?), Mei victory pose, Mei emote.

      Want: Tracer highlight, Mei in red, Winston, Reinhardt, Zenyatta, Roadhog skins, Roadhog highlight.

        The new Mercy skin is so good it might get some people off of her Halloween skin
