Blizzard has a reputation of hosting special Lunar Festival events for its titles. It’s had them for World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and possibly even Hearthstone. So, with one coming, and Overwatch being a successful part of their game lineup, many players are wondering what items could be coming, along with what special skins will be available to the Overwatch characters.
One notes on Battle.net that Mei has been promised to be getting a new skin, and the Lunar event would be the perfect time to do it should they desire. He also thought that Hanzo and Soldier 76 could get something in the way of new skins.
Other players took up the baton and let their opinions be known about what’s coming. Many took to the theme of the Lunar Festival and made suggestions like a fireworks-themed Bastion. While others stated that Mei and D.Va should get something. Especially D.Va, who hasn’t had a new skin since Halloween. Many liked the idea of a hanbok D.Va skin for example. Though Mei in a panda suit was a popular idea on the thread too.
“…heard McCree is getting a new emote. He stumbles and falls over drunk, asleep for the whole match without getting kicked. Supposed to be 5,000 credits…”
Some just want everyone to get the Lunar Festival treatment by having their bullets be fireworks. That’d certainly be one heck of a show huh? Although many admit that while it would be cool, it likely would be really hard to do, and could likely cause a lot of problems in gameplay.
So, do you think Overwatch should do something for the Lunar Festival? If so, what characters should get special skins and such? Or should all of them just get it? Let us know in the comments below!
