The Overwatch Winter Event is here
Following the tradition, the yearly Overwatch Winter Event has arrived. It will range from December 11th to January 2nd and brings along two winter brawl modes. According to the official Overwatch site, they can be described as:
“This 6-player brawl sets five Meis against one Yeti player who uses Winston’s abilities. The Yeti must gather meat to unlock a powerful Primal Rage ability, making him immune to Mei’s freezing abilities and granting other more powerful bonuses to eliminate the hunters. Mei players have a new tool in their arsenal, too: a “Yeti Trap” ultimate ability to root their quarry in place. Yeti players must survive long enough to eliminate enemy Meis before they take him down. Which side will emerge victorious from the snow?”
Mei’s Snowball Offensive
“In this brawl, Mei’s Endothermic Blaster has been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball. Taking down an enemy only requires one hit, but a miss can be costly. Once your weapon is empty search for the nearest snow pile to reload. When the battle starts to heat up, you can activate Mei’s Ultimate, which turns her blaster into an automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.”
And that’s not all, during the event maps like Blizzard World, Black Forest, King’s Row and Hanamura will be decorated to match the festive time of the year. Let it snow…
Of course there are new limited skins to collect in the Festive Lootboxes, together with ones from previous Winter events. We LOVE the Krampus look for Junkrat.
