Overwatch Winter Wonderland Returns December 12, New Legendary Skins, New Game Mode

Overwatch Winter Wonderland Returns December 12, New Legendary Skins, New Game Mode”

It begins next week and introduces a variety of new content for free, in addition to bringing back some of what we saw a year ago. He also says that Winter Wonderland will include a seasonal pass-over of some of the maps, including the return of snowy Hanamura and King's Row, as well as a new seasonal pass on the Black Forest arena map.

As usual, the event will offer a number of seasonally appropriate legendary skins, although Blizzard isn't revealing them just yet. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan is also promising new legendary skins are coming soon.

Where previous events have been shrouded in mystery, Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan hinted at numerous things coming to this year's Winter Wonderland event in a developer update. Kaplan described this as "one of the most gorgeous jobs [Blizzard's] environmental artists have ever done". Players will have a special event where a team of 6 Mei characters tries to take down one player-controlled Winston in a Yeti skin.

Finally, a completely new game mode will be Mei's Yeti Hunt - an asymmetrical 1 v 5 boss fight. Once he's collected enough, he'll enter Primal Rage mode, at which point the Meis have to flee to avoid being killed. 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. The new brawl will bit five Meis against one epically hulked out Winston.

Kaplan said that, with this mode, Blizzard wanted to try something "fun and different", admitting it is meant to be silly. Kaplan added that many of Overwatch's seasonal brawls are simply created to be fun, lighthearted and refreshing Arcade exercises that are available for a limited time. With how fantastic the Halloween skins ended up being (looking at you, Zenyatta), it's a little hard not to be excited as an Overwatch fan myself.

Many Overwatch players look forward to when the next limited time event in the game will be, as they often add new skins and new ways to play.
