For those fans of Mei’s Snowball Fight, Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event will be returning on December 12, 2017!
And as I know some of you would rather read a few bullet points than watch a 5 minute video, here’s my tl;dr version (left out things I didn’t think were that important):
- New Winter Wonderland skins will be available - Jeff references a Hanzo skin (that’s been seen in a comic), as well as Junkrat & Roadhog skins. He also mentions there will be more.
- Holiday themed maps return, including a holiday-themed Black Forest Map.
Mei’s Snowball Fight will also be available on the Black Forest map on top of Ecopoint: Antarctica.
- A new winter event called Mei’s Yeti Hunt, where 5 Mei’s hunt 1 Yeti Winston (all player controlled). Winston needs to eat meat to amp up his Primal Rage to turn the fight on Mei. Winning conditions are either a dead Winston or enough dead Mei’s.
Sleigh up Strategists!
