Overwatch Winter Wonderland is back

Overwatch Winter Wonderland is back

It's the holiday season, and Overwatch is celebrating adequately. Skins from a year ago will return, as they have in past events, and new items will join them.

Again, the Overwatch Winter Wonderland fun starts on December 12.

It's that time of year: Overwatch's seasonal event for the holidays, Winter Wonderland, returns December 12 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, developer Blizzard Entertainment announced today. In addition, Junkrat and Roadhog are confirmed to be getting new legendary skins for the holiday season, but they're not alone. By default, Winston will be wearing the Yeti skin, so no worries if you haven't attained it. The Ecopoint: Antarctica map is also in the mix alongside the black Forest arena, along with winterized versions of numerous game's maps to coincide with the event. This is a unique Arcade brawl where two teams of Mei's battle it out.

The Snowball Offensive will take place on the Black Forest and Ecopoint Antarctica maps. Set on the Nepal map, Mei's Yeti Hunt does still focus on characters shooting each other - but there's a twist.

Along with new holiday skins, and past event skins will return alongside Mei's Snowball Offensive alongside the new Brawl, Mei's Yeti Hunt.

All in all, Mei's Yeti Hunt sounds like a blast.

Will you be playing Overwatch Return to Winter Wonderland? It's a six-player mode with five Meis pinned against a single Winston, who grows stronger the farther across the map he moves. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston.

The Winston they're hunting will be player-controlled as well, and he or she will have to avoid the group of Meis until they can collect enough meat and super-charge their abilities.
