Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns next week with many Meis

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns next week with many Meis

Now that we're on the other side of Thanksgiving and barreling toward Christmas, it's time for many games that have persistent player bases to kick off their holiday events. Skins from previous year will return, as they have in past events, and new items will join them. Just as the Halloween and Summer events both tweaked their existing limited time brawls, Winter Wonderland is introducing a new arcade mode entirely.

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.

Players will also have a chance to earn holiday-themed skins, though Kaplan was a bit cagey about who and what, though he did say some might be good for Junkrat, Hanzo and Roadhog. By default, Winston will be wearing the Yeti skin, so no worries if you haven't attained it.

On top of the returning skins, last year's Winter Wonderland game mode, Mei's Snowball Fight, will also be making another appearance.

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

The centerpiece of 2017's Winter Wonderland event is a wild new Arcade mode called Mei's Yeti Hunt, which Kaplan said was the result of Blizzard wanting to "try something different and fun".

Fans of Mei will have a new event known as Mei's Yeti Hunt to play. Mei has a new ability that's specific to this mode, Ice Trap, and she can use it along with her usual Ice Wall to fend off the yeti.

All in all, Mei's Yeti Hunt sounds like a blast. "Well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is". The Winter Wonderland exclusive brawl, Mei's Snowball Offensive, will take place on that map this year.
