Overwatch Winter Event Announced

Blizzard has announced their Winter Wonderland 2017 event. The event returns on December 12 on consoles and PC. The event will bring back the fan-favorite mode Mei’s Snowball Offensive. In addition to Mei’s Snowball Offensive, a new seasonal event will be added. Mei’s Yeti Hunt will pit a team of 6 players consisting only of Mei against 1 Winston. The player-controlled Winston will have to evade the team of 6 while gathering power-ups and then going on the offensive. This mode sounds similar to the likes of Evolve or Friday the 13th.

Keep Going!
