  • Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Overwatch's seasonal Winter Wonderland event returns next week on December 12th, and Blizzard is breaking down what players can expect from this year's festivities in a developer update video.

We'll keep you posted about skins and more.

On top of the returning skins, last year's Winter Wonderland game mode, Mei's Snowball Fight, will also be making another appearance.

Obviously, there will be new Legendary skins available, but the team won't reveal them all - that would ruin the surprise.

In the above developer update, game director Jeff Kaplan teased a few heroes that would be receiving new Legendary skins: "two of our favorite junkers", also known as Junkrat and Roadhog, as well as Hanzo, who will be receiving an outfit that has been previously seen in one of Overwatch's comics.

Several maps will also get a Winter facelift, namely King's Row, Hanamura and Black Forest. Everyone playing as Mei tries to find Winston and take him down. Once that happens, the Yeti will prove a formidable foe for the six Mei players.

Additionally, Kaplan says Overwatch's Black Forest map is getting a new holiday makeover. But once Winston triggers Primal Rage, the mode flips: It becomes all about the Meis attempting to escape before Winston can kill them. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston. If Winston dies, the Meis win; if enough of the Meis die, Winston wins. "Well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is".

"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of silly and kind of ridiculous", said Kaplan of Mei's Yeti Hunt. Kaplan added that many of Overwatch's seasonal brawls are simply created to be fun, lighthearted and refreshing Arcade exercises that are available for a limited time.
