Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

With another big holiday season approaching, so does another Overwatch event.

Since the game released in May of past year, Overwatch has continued to grow its playerbase with new characters, cosmetics, and a continued focus on special limited run events, with the next in-game event to begin right around the holidays. The Overwatch Winter Wonderland event release date is December 12.

Overwatch's Jeff Kaplan is back to give a bit of information about next week's "Return to Winter Wonderland" holiday event. Kaplan confirmed a "long-awaited Hanzo skin" as well as a skin for both Junkrat and Roadhog, leaving players to speculate on the rest. By default, Winston will be wearing the Yeti skin, so no worries if you haven't attained it.

Several maps will also get a Winter facelift, namely King's Row, Hanamura and Black Forest.

On top of the returning skins, last year's Winter Wonderland game mode, Mei's Snowball Fight, will also be making another appearance. When the game begins, the Meis must attempt to hunt down and eliminate Winston, while he does he best to avoid detection and snaffle up as many meat power-ups as he can.

This year, Snowball Offensive will be available on Ecopoint and the new winterised Black Forest arena. Players are tasked with hunting him down before his rage sets in. We're unsure how it'll play out since it's hard enough to escape a single Mei never mind five. "And, well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is". "But the point of some of these seasonal brawls is just to be fun and light and refreshing for a short period of time".

"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of silly and kind of ridiculous", said Kaplan of Mei's Yeti Hunt.

Winter Wonderland 2017 begins on December 12.
