Blizzard has finally unveiled all the new skins and a peek at the brand new Capture the Flag map for Overwatch.

If you love collecting Overwatch skins and participating in limited time events, you might have heard that Blizzard has a Lunar New Year 2018 event called "Year of the Dog".

This year, we're celebrating Lunar New Year with changes to our Capture the Flag mode, including a new competitive mode, the new map Ayutthaya, and many gameplay improvements. Should you decide to try and climb the ladder within competitive capture the flag, you stand the chance to earn a custom player icon and spray. Year of the Dog also brings an all-new competitive variant which, as you might expect, aims to offer a more competitive experience with placement matches, skill ratings tiers, competitive points, and all the rest. The developer has also announced that they have introduced some changes to the game's mode where games will no longer end in a tie, and that games that do end in a tie at the end of the timer will enter into a sudden-death mode.

In the latest Overwatch Developer Update, game director Jeff Kaplan talked about the Year of the Dog event, which will launch on February 8. The game resumes, with the distance that the flags need to travel shortened. Instead of having to wait a few seconds, the pickup is now instant.

Capture the flag has returned, but it's not the capture the flag you remember from a year ago.

Speaking of skins, lastly, and for some players most importantly, Kaplan revealed that there will be six legendary skins that will roll out with the Year of the Dog event, including one each for Mercy and Genji.

There's also a whole new map designed specifically for the mode, but we'll get to that a bit later.
