Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2018 Event Now Underway

Blizzard Entertainment is helping put players in the holiday spirit with the return of their “Winter Wonderland” event.  Players will be treated to new holiday themed emotes, sprays, and of course new skins.

New skins this year include:

Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy

Snowboarder Zarya

Gift Wrap Bastion

Snow Fox Lucio

Biathlon Widowmaker

Figure Skater Symmetra

Krampus Junkrat

This year the Blizzard World map will also be decked out for the Holidays.  Also, all previous holiday skins, emotes, and sprays will be available in loot boxes or for purchase.

The two holiday brawls will also be making a return:

Yeti Hunter-  “This 6-player brawl sets five Meis against one Yeti player who uses Winston’s abilities. The Yeti must gather meat to unlock a powerful Primal Rage ability, making him immune to Mei’s freezing abilities and granting other more powerful bonuses to eliminate the hunters. Mei players have a new tool in their arsenal, too: a “Yeti Trap” ultimate ability to root their quarry in place. Yeti players must survive long enough to eliminate enemy Meis before they take him down.”

Mei’s Snowball Offensive- “Mei’s Endothermic Blaster has been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball. Taking down an enemy only requires one hit, but a miss can be costly. Once your weapon is empty search for the nearest snow pile to reload. When the battle starts to heat up, you can activate Mei’s Ultimate, which turns her blaster into an automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.”

Winter Wonderland 2018 runs from December 11 to January 2.
