Return to Winter Wonderland - 5 Meis & One Yeti-fied Winston

Return to Winter Wonderland - 5 Meis & One Yeti-fied Winston

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan is also promising new legendary skins are coming soon.

Starting on December 12, Overwatch players can revel in some fun-filled, and snowy activities when the Winter Wonderland event returns. We'll probably hear (and see) more of those skins over the weekend, so sit tight for that. So this is something you can do for now to mix up your Overwatch action - and then you can start counting down the days until the next Winter Wonderland event.

Additionally, Kaplan says Overwatch's Black Forest map is getting a new holiday makeover. It's an asymmetrical multiplayer mode: Modeled after a boss fight à la Evolve, it pits five Meis against one "yeti", Winston. However, the Black Forest map will also be decked up for the holiday season as well. As happened a year ago, 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. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media here yesterday that Wang will meet top Indian officials on its sidelines.

In each match's early goings, Winston has to elude the crack team of adorable, infuriating ice assassins and collect power-ups until he can go into primal rage mode, at which point the tables turn. In Mei's Yeti Hunt, each Mei will also have a special ice trap ability alongside her usual repertoire. If Winston dies, the Meis win; if enough of the Meis die, Winston wins.

"I know a lot of you are thinking that this sounds kinda silly and kinda ridiculous", Kaplan said in his video to the Overwatch community.
