Overwatch’s holiday event is now live

Join the Winter Wonderland with a Christmas theme, fresh skins and other additions.

It’s Winter time in Overwatch! As previously teased, the next event has just begun. Starting on December 13th, all Loot Boxes are now holiday-themed. Each of them will include at least one Christmas item from various categories – sprays, emotes, skins etc. The event ends on January 2nd, 2017.

During this time you’ll be able to play a new Brawl: Mei’s Snowball Offensive. It’s a 6vs6 mode with Mei being the only available character. She’ll receive a modified shooting mode – icy stream is no more, with a single, powerful snowball available instead. If you shoot and miss, you won’t reload automatically. Searching for a snow pile is required.

Similarly to the Halloween event, everything you earn this time will stay with you after Winter Wonderland ends.
