All players on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC who log in before 6th February will be able to collect a variety of cosmetic items, including new skins, emotes, highlight intros, player icons, sprays, to add to their collections. Check out how your favourite heroes are celebrating the Year of the Rat in the new video below…
