Winter Wonderland is making a return to Overwatch with new skins, new modes and new versions of the maps that are getting the holiday treatment.
Word comes by way of the latest Developer Update from Jeff Kaplan, the game’s director. A new legendary Hanzo skin which was featured in one of the Overwatch comics will become available, as well as new legendary skins for Junkrat and Roadhog.
The snowy versions of King’s Row and Hanamura will be back for Return to Winter Wonderland, and the Black Forest will also get an icy remodel. Mei’s Snowball Offensive will be playable on the Black Forest map and will still be available to play on the Antarctica map.
A new brawl will also be added, called Mei’s Yeti Hunt. It takes place in Nepal Village, and pits five Mei’s against one Winston (dressed as a Yeti). Both sides will have special abilities in this mode, with the Mei’s getting a new Ice Trap, and with the Winston able to eat meat scattered throughout the map to power up his Primal Rage quicker. The idea is that when Winston is looking for meat, the Mei’s have the advantage, and when Winston is in Primal Rage, he’s got the advantage.
Return to Winter Wonderland will be taking place on December 12 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
