The weather outside is frightful, but Overwatch is so delightful, so it's time for Overwatch's winter seasonal event to return.

Overwatch overlord Jeff Kaplan took to video today to explain the new additions coming to Overwatch for this event. At very least, Hanzo, Junkrat, and Roadhog are all getting new Legendary skins, with Kaplan noting that more will be announced at a later date. Additionally, Mei's Snowball Offensive is back from last year. The brawl-exclusive mode is exactly what it sounds like, pitting six Meis versus six other Meis in a snowball fight that alters the way she fires her weapons and regains ammo.

Also like last year, you can play in the Ecopoint: Antarctica map, but now the Black Forest arena joins the rotation. The winter transformations of all the maps are back, with the misty Black Forest getting its winter version with this event.

Finally, a new mode called Yeti Hunt will be introduced this year, which pits a team five Meis against a single Winston, hunting him down. Winston gets a head start from the Mei team to get more powerful from different parts of the map. If Winston kills enough Meis, he wins, while the Meis have to kill Winston before he gets too strong. 

The event is going live on December 12 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can check out Kaplan's developer update below.

 

Our Take
That new mode sounds a lot like Turtle Rock's Evolve. It just being a mode in a game rather than the central concept of a game might make it a lot less repetitive, though.
