Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Blizzard just released a new Developer Update video detailing the second coming of the Winter Wonderland event for Overwatch. One such game is Overwatch, which will host its Winter Wonderland event for the second year in the row beginning next week.

Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan has stated that new legendary skins will make it to the game for heroes such as Hanzo, Junkrat, and Road Hog. This new mode sees five Meis square off a single Winston in the Nepal village map.

Aside from cosmetics, Mei's Snowball Offensive will also return from previous year, which pits two teams of Meis against each other in a snowball fight-style conflict.

We'll keep you posted about skins and more. The latter will be getting the appropriate holiday decorations along with Kings Row and Hanamura who got theirs past year. So this is something you can do for now to mix up your Overwatch action - and then you can start counting down the days until the next Winter Wonderland event. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston. Winston has to collect powerups around the map that award him primal rage and pick off the Mei's that are mercilessly hunting him down. As Kaplan revealed, all Meis will also have an extra ability, setting ice traps all around the map for Yeti Winston to step on. They can use their Ice Walls. If Winston dies, the Meis win; if enough of the Meis die, Winston wins.

"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".
