Overwatch's Winter Wonderland Will Be Returning December 12

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland Will Be Returning December 12

Starting December 12th, players will be collecting holiday skins, throwing snowballs, and celebrating the festivities together. You can once again enjoy the Global Snowball Offensive mode that has a team of Meis throwing balls of fresh powder at one another, but you can now play that mode on the Black Forest map as well. All the new skins will appear alongside last year's skins so you can potentially hoover up any that you missed last time around.

Check out the Developer Update below with the legend himself Jeff Kaplan. 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. As with previous timed events it is expected that there will be special Winter Loot Boxes during the event, which will contain at least one item from the Winter Wonderland collection when opened. There's also word that a winter-themed Hanzo costume is on the way.

Last year's event saw two maps, King's Row and Hanamura, get what Blizzard calls a "seasonal pass", where they're decorated for the event.
