In a trailer published today on the game’s official YouTube channel, Blizzard unveiled some of the goodies players can expect in an update celebrating the Chinese New Year – the year of the rooster.

Starting today, fans can get their hands on roughly 100 cosmetic items, including skins for Mei, Symmetra, Junk Rat, and more. The update also features a fireworks display on the Lijiang Tower map, as well as a capture-the-flag mode. Also of note is the inclusion of small tweaks to Roadhog, D.Va, Ana, and Sombra – in all cases reducing some overpowered elements of each character.

The event is set to last through February 13th.
