Overwatch's "Winter Wonderland" event begins today

Overwatch Winter Wonderland Event Goes Live With New Skins

The holidays are here, which means Christmas is coming to the joyous online multiplayer video game Overwatch.

Many Overwatch players look forward to when the next limited time event in the game will be, as they often add new skins and new ways to play.

Tomorrow, December 12, marks the return of the Overwatch Christmas event: Winter Wonderland. This is something players have wanted for a long time. You can find it after the break. Trust me when I say, this will settle a lot of arguments and end lengthy debates as to why one friend should play a specific champion or role over the other.

Where previous events have been shrouded in mystery, Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan hinted at numerous things coming to this year's Winter Wonderland event in a developer update.

Woman Lived With Rotting Body Parts After Killing Husband, Police Say
Sheriff Steve Barry said Marcia Eubank had "almost an expression of relief" when he located her in an Arlington Rd. parking lot. The call came in Saturday, from the victim's son who in the opening statement says " I just found out my mom killed my dad".

The developer is hosting 12 days of giveaways on its official Overwatch Twitter account, raffling off a new Overwatch-themed prize each day.

As we detailed a few days back, Mei's Global Snowball Offensive will be back playable on both Antarctica and the Black Forest map but a new mode will also be available. In addition, Mei can only freeze the Yeti while it is in rage mode. Starting today and continuing on through January 1, you can traipse around in-game with a set of new wintry skins, play a new Brawl, and collect lots of new cosmetic items.

You'll play as SIX Meis against ONE Winston in an asymmetrical game mode - you can choose to play as the Yeti or as one of the Mei's. The goal of this new PvE mode is to try and kill Winston using all of Mei's unique abilities before he turns into an unstoppable juggernaut.

Game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed the change to PCGamesN. That enters you for a chance to win, and if you ReTweet every day, you win the grand prize of a Razer Grandmaster Gaming Bundle, which includes a Razer Blade Pro 4K Laptop and more Overwatch-related gear.
