Hope you’re wrapped up warm! Winter Wonderland has come back to Overwatch this month.
The game’s official Twitter, @PlayOverwatch, tweeted the following yesterday:
The tweet confirms the event’s duration and offers another look at Sigma’s Rime skin, revealed at Blizzcon earlier this year.
In previous years, Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event has featured a number of additional skins, voice lines, and sprays for the game’s roster. These include Snow Owl Ana, Santa Torbjorn, and Mercy’s Sugar Plum Fairy.
Take on Winston during Winter Wonderland with Yeti Hunt
In addition, players have another chance to play the limited-time mode: Yeti Hunt.
Yeti Hunt is an asymmetrical Arcade Brawl where five Meis go up against a Winston. Naturally,there are some alterations to make up for the imbalance this presents. Winston is like Pac-Man, in a sense; he has to leap around the map eating hunks of raw meat to charge his ultimate ability. When full, he can let loose and attempt to kill the Meis hunting him.
The goals are simple.
Winston, the Yeti, has to reach five eliminations to win. Team Mei, the Hunters, have to eliminate Winston before this happens. Seems simple enough, right?

The Winter Wonderland event is live now and runs on to January 2.
