Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Starting on December 12, Overwatch players can revel in some fun-filled, and snowy activities when the Winter Wonderland event returns. Starting December 12th, players will be collecting holiday skins, throwing snowballs, and celebrating the festivities together. The Winter Wonderland exclusive brawl, Mei's Snowball Offensive, will take place on that map this year. Presumably this will work like past events, with players receiving a free loot box for logging in and the standard box being replaced by a seasonal version that includes the new, limited-time skins and cosmetics. Find out more in an update from Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan in the video below. The Director put emphasis on the Hanzo skin in particular, claiming that the appearance has been featured in a past comic and is a long-awaited look for the bow-wielding hero.

While Winter Wonderland is a revival of last year's event, Blizzard is bringing some major new additions. There's also word that a winter-themed Hanzo costume is on the way. Old maps King's Row and Hanamura will receive "seasonal passes", or themed decorations for the holidays. Well, it's a good thing I did, as I can now report that we're headed to a Winter Wonderland! This is similar to the lockout elimination mode in the arcade. Mei and Winston's new outfits are especially welcome since neither of them got any new costume options during the Summer Games or Halloween events.

Blizzard is also introducing Mei's Yeti Hunt.

Mei's Global Snowball Offensive, the artic themed one-hit-one-kill snowball fight mode that proved incredibly popular previous year will return in 2017 and moves to the Black Forest 3v3 map near Eichenwald.

It sounds like it will be a pretty fun update so if you did enjoy last year's Winter Wonderland event, then you'll want to keep an eye out for this year's event.
