  • Overwatch's Returning Holiday Events Has a Team of Meis Fighting a Yeti Winston

"A long-awaited Hanzo skin that you've seen before in one of our comics is coming to life", said Kaplan.

Overwatch's Jeff Kaplan is back to give a bit of information about next week's "Return to Winter Wonderland" holiday event. Just like a year ago, Overwatch is hosting another Winter Wonderland event.

While Winter Wonderland is a revival of last year's event, Blizzard is bringing some major new additions. 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. "I think it's one of the most gorgeous jobs that our environmental artists have ever done", he says. "We really wanted to try something different and fun for this year's event and it's the idea of what we call a boss fight", Kaplan said. It's a six-player mode with five Meis pinned against a single Winston, who grows stronger the farther across the map he moves. 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. A limited-time mode, Mei's Snowball Offensive, will also return and now be playable on both Ecopoint: Antarctica and this winterized version of Black Forest. When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins. Kaplan says that the point of the seasonal brawls is to be fun, light-hearted distractions, and that it is created to be silly by nature. But once Winston triggers Primal Rage, the mode flips: It becomes all about the Meis attempting to escape before Winston can kill them. Like Overwatch's other seasonal events, the second helping of Winter Wonderland will be a healthy mix of new and old.
