'Overwatch's' Winter Wonderland Event Returns Next Week

'Overwatch's' Winter Wonderland Event Returns Next Week

"We really wanted to try something different and fun for this year's event and it's the idea of what we call a boss fight", Kaplan said.

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. By default, Winston will be wearing the Yeti skin, so no worries if you haven't attained it.

New Legendary skins will arrive, with Kaplan teasing specific ones for Hanzo, Junkrat and Roadhog. This will once again cover the King's Row map in snow and holiday decorations, and Blizzard Entertainment has also confirmed that it has given a makeover to the Black Forest map to celebrate the gift-giving holidays.

You'll get a good long look at the newly winter-ised Black Forest during the return of Mei's Snowball Offensive brawl. Set on the Nepal map, Mei's Yeti Hunt does still focus on characters shooting each other - but there's a twist.

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

Once enough meat has been devoured, Winston's Primal Rage mode will activate and the tables will turn.

In a new developer update, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan explains all of the skins introduced during last year's event will be returning this year. It's a race to see if the team of Meis wins, or the powerful Winston can smash them all. When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins. In Mei's Yeti Hunt, each Mei will also have a special ice trap ability alongside her usual repertoire.

"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of silly and kind of ridiculous and well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is".
