Aside from the loot-box-goodies we can get, Blizzard is stepping up the festivity a little bit by modifying some well-known maps to suit the occasion.

Lijiang Tower is now as bright as ever with paper lanterns and Chinese ornaments for the start of the Chinese calendar.

If you're into Capture-The-Flag game mode, you'll surely love Busan as it has been transformed to fit perfectly for CTF, an exclusive map just for this event.

Overwatch Lunar New Year 2019 event runs from January 24 until February 18, 2019.
