Overwatch has updated with a Chinese New Year seasonal event and for the next three weeks, they have added over 100 commemorative cosmetic items, new firework effects on Lijiang Tower, and the new game mode - Capture The Rooster, a play on the name for Capture the Flag.
With the Chinese New Year event you can see some of the awesome new skins below:

And finally Jeff is back talking in depth about the development and decisions behind the capture the flag mode. Talking about hero strengths, Winstons Jump, and how Tracer and Genji may be overpowered due to movement. Talking how they toyed with the idea of removing these abilities but then realise how the game wasn't very "Overwatch" so they reverted the changes and also changed a few standard CTF rules.
In addition it is clear the game mode has turned all meta's on its head and a mindset about playing with the heroes. Check out the developer blog below:
