Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12
It's beginning to look a lot like seasonal-event time for online games, and Overwatch is showing up with the return of its fan-favorite Winter Wonderland holiday festival.
We'll keep you posted about skins and more.
Since the game released in May of a year ago, Overwatch has continued to grow its playerbase with new characters, cosmetics, and a continued focus on special limited run events, with the next in-game event to begin right around the holidays.
A new skin for Hanzo, previously seen in Overwatch comics, will be available alongside new Legendary skins for Junkrat and Roadhog. However, the Black Forest map will also be decked up for the holiday season as well.

The Delta flight from JFK to Seattle was supposed to land in Seattle and it was supposed to take about six hours. There weren't any available gates at the airport, so the plane had to taxi to the cargo area.
Additionally, Kaplan says Overwatch's Black Forest map is getting a new holiday makeover.
Finally, a completely new game mode will be Mei's Yeti Hunt - an asymmetrical 1 v 5 boss fight. 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. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston.
In the mode, which takes place on the Nepal map, the Mei players will start out hunting Winston while he tries to evade them and track down stacks of meat. If he gets enough of that meat, he will go into Primal Rage mode and then the tables turn. Mei has a new ability that's specific to this mode, Ice Trap, and she can use it along with her usual Ice Wall to fend off the yeti. When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins.
Instagram Direct is Becoming its Own App
Focused on image sharing , Instagram Direct opens directly to the camera so sharing can be easier than ever before. But as long as Direct is a part of Instagram , expanding the platform would get increasingly hard for the company.

At this point, officials don't believe any information has been stolen, but malware was discovered on about 30 servers. Mecklenburg, with Charlotte as the county seat, serves more than 1 million people as the state's most populous county.
Lone attacker, 20, paid by Uber to delete hacked data
After the hack occurred, instead of publicly announcing it, the company paid $100,000 to the hackers to delete the information. Uber is already under fire for not disclosing the hack earlier to authorities and could be hit with stiff financial penalties.
Tomb Raider Announcement Confirms Name, Teases Release
We presume this will be Shadow of the Tomb Raider , though Square Enix has yet to confirm its official title. Instead of unveiling a game well ahead of release, the publisher is shortening its typical marketing cycle.
