Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland seasonal event returns December 12, bringing with it old and new holiday-themed character skins as well as a new Brawl, Mei's Yeti Hunt.

As usual, fans should expect a slew of new Legendary costumes, which will be up for grabs with the latest patch.

Winter Wonderland debuted a year ago, and this latest outing promises a mix of the familiar and the new.

Instagram's Distinct Messaging App Could be A victor
As of today, Instagram users in Chile, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay can download Direct on both iOS and Android . The Direct app, in its current state, is simple and straightforward. "Camera-first", huh? That sure sounds a lot like Snapchat.


The Winter Wonderland event is also seeing the return of Mei's snowball fight game mode. The idea will be that five Meis will band together to chase after a risky yeti-skinned Winston, who is controlled by a single player.

Winter Wonderland will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 when it launches next Tuesday, and the full line-up of 2017 seasonal skins will likely be revealed soon. "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", says game director Jeff Kaplan in a video (seen below). The five terrifying Meis hunt the Winston through a version of Overwatch's Nepal map, and the Winston has to collect packs of "meat" to fuel his primal rage. In addition, there is the Mei snowball fight mode as well. While this page caused a ton of different questions, one of the most consistent was when could we get the Hanzo skin? If he fully charges it up, the Meis will need to do whatever they can to escape.

Several maps will also get a Winter facelift, namely King's Row, Hanamura and Black Forest. If the Meis kill Winston, they win. If Winston dies, the Meis win; if enough of the Meis die, Winston wins.
