Overwatch Capture the Flag and Even More Skins Revealed in ‘Leaked’ Footage

Beginning tomorrow, January 24th, Blizzard will be celebrating Chinese New Year as the latest holiday event to bestow upon players in North American servers. It is only a day away, and even more footage continues to pop up. According to a leaked video that appeared on Sina Weibo, a Chinese social media site comparable to the likes of Facebook and Twitter, Overwatch Capture the Flag may be a thing. Not only that, but skins for several other heroes are revealed as well. Check it out below!


Symmetra, Mercy, and Tracer’s new skins seem to be recolors, at most. However, it is difficult to tell because of the quality, but the main color palette will be red and gold – colors which indicate good luck and prosperity. Near the end of the video clip, Tracer can be seen blinking out of a glowing, circular point with a large flag in the middle. Based on that, this may be hinting at a Capture the Flag type of arcade game. Similar to the Mei’s Snowball Offensive, does it mean Tracer will be the only playable hero? Or was she just used to showcase it?

As previously reported, D.VA, Mei, Zenyatta, Winston, Reinhardt, and Roadhog will be getting a new outfit. With the last 4 donning skins inspired by famous Chinese novel – Journey to the West. Others may recognize the folk tale as a heavy inspiration to Dragon Ball Z. Our favorite mech suit pilot will be sporting a non-traditional Hanbok.

What do you think the new event could be? Is it Overwatch Capture the Flag? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below – we would love to hear from you! Don’t forget to follow Don’t Feed the Gamers on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest gaming news, as it happens!
