Looking to inject some holiday cheer into your time with Overwatch? Blizzard has just the remedy, with the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event, going on now. Starting today and continuing on through Jan. 1, you can traipse around in-game with a set of new wintry skins, play a new Brawl, and collect lots of new cosmetic items.
The new Brawl, Yeti Hunt, is a 5v1 game that takes five Mei “Hunters” against one “Yeti” in the form of Winston. You’ve got to kill the Hunters five times as the Yeti, where the Hunters need to kill the Yeti only once to win. Of course, Winston is all powered up and out for blood in this newly reskinned Nepal Village map. Winston has additional health and armor, with different meat packs around the map to help power up his ultimate. Mei has her normal abilities in addition to reduced times for Ice Wall and Ice Block, with which she can freeze Winston while in rage mode. If that doesn’t sound like much fun, you can play through last year’s Winter Wonderland brawl, Mei’s Snowball Offensive.
In addition, the Winter Wonderland item collection comes with over 150 items, and a selection of new skins to boot, including Avalanche Bastion and Ice Fisherman Roadhog, to boot. You can also spend less credits on Legendary skins this time around, in terms of last year’s. You should be able to outfit your favorite characters how you see fit this year, and for cheaper.
Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of the cool skins and items on offer!
