Overwatch: What is Hanzo Winter Wonderland 2017 Event Skin?

Overwatch Winter Wonderland

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

"The mode is really fun and different", explains Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan.

New holiday skins will be available for Hanzo, Junkrat and Roadhog.

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland returns next week on Tuesday. There was no word on what the rarity of this skin would be, but if we had to guess it will most likely be a Legendary. The latter will be getting the appropriate holiday decorations along with Kings Row and Hanamura who got theirs previous year.

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. The Winter Wonderland exclusive mode is now playable on both the Ecopoint Antarctica and Black Forest maps, and it's joined by a new "silly and ridiculous" mode known as Mei's Yeti Hunt.

"Serious collision" shuts down traffic near World Trade Center in lower Manhattan
A auto jumped the curb and struck three pedestrians on a sidewalk in Lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon, police said. Emergency services rushed to the scene after the black Lincoln Town Car mowed people down in lower Manhattan.

A new brawl will also be added, called Mei's Yeti Hunt. Essentially, it boils down to 5 Mei players taking on resident big lad Winston, who also happens to be player controlled.

In each match's early goings, Winston has to elude the crack team of adorable, infuriating ice assassins and collect power-ups until he can go into primal rage mode, at which point the tables turn. Mei has a new ability that's specific to this mode, Ice Trap, and she can use it along with her usual Ice Wall to fend off the yeti. He said nothing about Pharah, however, presumably because he dislikes me, personally.

Overwatch's seasonal Winter Wonderland event returns next week on December 12th, and Blizzard is breaking down what players can expect from this year's festivities in a developer update video.
