Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

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.

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.
