Overwatch’s seasonal event has once again kicked off, and this year’s Winter Wonderland adds eight new skins for players to collect.
Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland runs from December 16, 2021 to January 6, 2022, and players can earn the various skins by completing challenges. At the same time, there are also a variety of different sprays and player icons to earn as well. You can see all eight skins in the gallery below. Keep in mind three of these skins (Symmetra, Tracer, Brigitte) can only be earned through weekly challenges.
This year’s Winter Wonderland comes with four unique game types, the first of which is a brand new 4vs4 game mode called Freezethaw Elimination. Here’s the official description of all four game types that will be on offer in Overwatch.
- Freezethaw Elimination – Get ready to freeze your foes in this brand-new 4v4 brawl! Instead of dying, players will be frozen solid in blocks of ice that their teammates can thaw. Freeze everyone on the enemy team to secure a win, but watch out—a defrosted foe might turn the tables and put you on ice instead. Earn new achievements and unlock unique sprays for proving your worth in the frosty fray!
- Mei’s Snowball Offensive – Team up to ice over your enemies! In this 6v6 brawl, everyone plays as Mei, and her 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!
- Snowball Deathmatch – In this 8-person free-for-all brawl, players can store up to three lethal snowballs in Mei’s blaster, giving them multiple chances to ice the competition before having to reload.
- Yeti Hunter – This 6-player brawl sets five Meis against one Yeti who uses Winston’s abilities. The Yeti must survive long enough to eliminate enemy Meis before they take him down. Which side will emerge from the snowstorm victorious?
