Winter Wonderland 2018 Update For Overwatch Is Live Now Through January

Posted by at 1:24 pm on December 11, 2018

Overwatch’s annual Winter Wonderland update has gone live on all platforms, letting you throw down in some holiday-themed events and introducing a load of new winter skins. The festivities will last until January 2.

This year the game brings back the Yeti Hunter and Mei’s Snowball Offensive modes from previous years, but it doesn’t include any new Brawls. The Blizzard World, Black Forest, King’s Row, and Hanamura maps were all given wintery makeovers for the event too. Naturally the event also includes loads of new skins alongside the return of winter skins from last year at reduced prices.

A teaser video that announced the event showed the Blizzard World map redone as a holiday village. The Overwatch Twitter has also shown off several of the new skins: Snowboarder Zarya, Snow Fox Lucio, Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy, Biathlon Widowmaker, Gift Wrap Bastion, Figure Skater Symmetra, and Krampus Junkrat.

These winter events tend to be themed around Mei, the cold-based climatologist. This is also the first Winter Wonderland event since the game has introduced Brigitte, Wrecking Ball, and Ashe, so they’re bound to have an impact on the meta for any returning holiday game modes.
