As usual, the themed event will be host to a range of new skins, emotes, sprays, and even a special new way to play in the Arcade. The latter will be getting the appropriate holiday decorations along with Kings Row and Hanamura who got theirs past year.

"A long-awaited Hanzo skin that you've seen before in one of our comics is coming to life", said Kaplan.

Now that we're on the other side of Thanksgiving and barreling toward Christmas, it's time for many games that have persistent player bases to kick off their holiday events. The Winter Wonderland event is set to begin December 12.

During this period players will also be able to use the gold currency in the Hero Gallery to unlock items from this year and the previous year's Winter Wonderland collection.

Mei's Snowball Offensive, which appeared for the first time a year ago as part of the winter seasonal event, is set to make a return. These limited time decorated maps are always just handsome and Kaplan described this as "one of the most gorgeous jobs [Blizzard's] environmental artists have ever done." so we are in for something special this year.

Meanwhile, Forbes noted that the key addition to the event is Mei's Yeti Hunt. Mei's Snowball Offensive is moving to 6v6 on The Black Forest, where it has been changed to single elimination mode. Once enough Meis-or Winston-are killed, the game is over. It sounds like a chaotic mode and it will be interesting to see what tricks the Yeti can pull to give himself an advantage against the pack of Meis hunting him down. The Yeti player will need to avoid the Meis and find meat stashed around the map which acts as fuel for his Primal Rage.

Making its grand return to close out 2017 is the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event, making a comeback after first appearing for the game right around this time past year.
