Overwatch's festively themed Winter Wonderland event will return next week, Tuesday December 12th, Blizzard has announced.

We expect to get a glimpse of more skins leading up to the event next week.

Since the game released in May of past year, 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. Kaplan confirmed a "long-awaited Hanzo skin" as well as a skin for both Junkrat and Roadhog, leaving players to speculate on the rest.

Additionally, Kaplan says Overwatch's Black Forest map is getting a new holiday makeover. This will once again cover the King's Row map in snow and holiday decorations, and Blizzard Entertainment has also confirmed that it has given a makeover to the Black Forest map to celebrate the gift-giving holidays.

Fans of Mei will have a new event known as Mei's Yeti Hunt to play. As happened previous year, the winter holiday event, Overwatch Winter Wonderland will also take place this month, bringing a new PvE mode, new skins, and cosmetics for all Overwatch Heroes. In addition, there is the Mei snowball fight mode as well. Essentially, it boils down to 5 Mei players taking on resident big lad Winston, who also happens to be player controlled. Once he's found enough meat, the tables turn, and the Winston-Yeti hunts the Meis until it kills them. When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins. They can use their Ice Walls. And yes, Kaplan understands how ridiculous that sounds.
