Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Overwatch's Returning Holiday Events Has a Team of Meis Fighting a Yeti Winston

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.

Since the game released in May of a year ago, Overwatch has continued to grow its playerbase with new characters, cosmetics, and a continued focus on special limited run events, with the next in-game event to begin right around the holidays. 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 case you were anxious, yes, there will also be new skins.

Snowball offensive will also make a return. The difference is, each Mei only has one shot in the chamber and a hit is an instant kill.

Global passenger traffic up 7.2pc in Oct: IATA
Unique city pairs served by airlines grew to over 20,000 in 2017, +1,351 on 2016 and double the 10,000 city pairs served in 1996. IATA said the forecast increase in passenger fares was in line with expected inflation.

The new mode is called "Mei's Yeti Hunt", and it sees a team of five Meis trying to bring down one super-charged Winston. Both teams are human players, with Mei hunting Winston, and Winston attempting to build his Primal Rage by collecting meat power ups. King's Row and Hanamura will once again be sporting their frosty good looks, and there's a new seasonal update for the Black Forest arena map too. Everyone playing as Mei tries to find Winston and take him down.

It sounds like Overwatch is going a bit Evolve, which is an interesting choice. Today, Blizzard announced that the Overwatch Winter Wonderland seasonal event would be making a return on December 12, likely lasting until January 2, as each event is usually three weeks long.
