Lunar New Year to Begin February 8th

BROOKLYN MEDIA GROUP

Traditional foods served during the meal celebrating the start of the Chinese lunar calendar - falling this year on February 16 - won't weigh you down like Thanksgiving dinner, but they are heavy with symbolic significance.

"We love any occasion where we can acknowledge the special bond between dogs and their owners", said Joe Dent, chief store operations officer for Pet Valu.

Naturally there will be plenty of seasonal cosmetics for you to seek to unlock with commemorative Lunar Loot Boxes returning, while Blizzard say that the event's Capture the Flag mode will be featured on a new map.

2018 is the Year of the Dog, according to the Chinese zodiac.

Blizzard isn't saying whether that limited-time mode is returning for the Year of the Dog, however.

Last year the Lunar Year event was celebrating the Year of the Roster which added quite a few new skins to the game.

Last year's lunar event starred Mei and ran from January 24 through February 13.

This could very well lead into more themed Overwatch content to come in the months ahead, and the possible introduction of new content, including, you guessed it, Heroes.

The new items includes Epic and Legendary skins, player icons, emotes and sprays.
