In case you were anxious, yes, there will also be new skins.
Various maps will also have a winter makeover including King's Row and Hanamura as well as an update for Black Forest.
In the above developer update, game director Jeff Kaplan teased a few heroes that would be receiving new Legendary skins: "two of our favorite junkers", also known as Junkrat and Roadhog, as well as Hanzo, who will be receiving an outfit that has been previously seen in one of Overwatch's comics. 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.
Blizzard Entertainment has got in the Christmas spirit early with confirmation of the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event.
Huskies to face Penn State in Fiesta Bowl
Curtis Enis was the offensive player of the game, while Brandon Noble was the defensive player of the game. Penn State Students - online sale begins Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 7 a.m.
Mei's Snowball Offensive, which appeared for the first time previous year as part of the winter seasonal event, is set to make a return. What's new here is it's expanding to the Black Forest map too, and a change in scenery is always a nice addition to have. There will be a new mode within Winter Wonderland called Mei's Yeti Hunt, in which six Meis face off against one Yeti (Winston).
Mei's Global Snowball Offensive, the artic themed one-hit-one-kill snowball fight mode that proved incredibly popular past year will return in 2017 and moves to the Black Forest 3v3 map near Eichenwald. If enough Meis go down, Winston wins (tons). The Meis and, more surprisingly, the Yeti, will all be player-controlled. Players are tasked with hunting him down before his rage sets in.
"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of ridiculous and kind of silly, and I'm here to tell you it absolutely is", Kaplan said.
As with last year's Winter Wonderland event, the special holiday period will likely come to a conclusion on January 2, giving players around three weeks to earn all of the game's new cosmetic items.
