Ensuing tweets also revealed a new look for D.Va, alongside a new costume for Mei as well. 

A Blizzard spokesperson revealed that the Year of the Rooster event will be similar to past in-game events, like Halloween Terror and Winter Wonderland. During this event, players will be able to obtain new skins, voice lines, emotes, and other items for hitting certain goals set out during the event.

In addition to these cosmetic releases, there will also be a new game mode added for the event — but Blizzard hasn’t revealed any further information about what that might look like.
