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.

Many Overwatch players look forward to when the next limited time event in the game will be, as they often add new skins and new ways to play. There'll be new and returning holiday themed character skins, for instance, with Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan teasing new Legendary skins for "two of our favourite junkers" (Junkrat and Roadhog, surely) in Blizzard's announcement video. In the past Hanamura and King's Row received the Winter Wonderland treatment and this continues.

Snowball offensive will also make a return. Ammo can be refilled at snow piles but leaves you very, very defenceless so it's a game of timing and accuracy. The Ecopoint: Antarctica map is also in the mix alongside the black Forest arena, along with winterized versions of numerous game's maps to coincide with the event.

The newest Winter Wonderland seasonal mode is called Mei's Yeti Hunt, and it's Overwatch's first attempt at a 5v1 boss fight. It's spooky at first, where the team of Meis is trying to find Winston and what Winston is doing is going around the map, looking for power-ups, which are meat that fuels his Primal Rage. Everyone playing as Mei tries to find Winston and take him down. In Mei's Yeti Hunt, each Mei will also have a special ice trap ability alongside her usual repertoire. It basically sounds like Evolve. And yes, Kaplan understands how ridiculous that sounds. We'll get to see it in action soon enough, as Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns on December 12 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
