Overwatch players can now enjoy a new Winter Wonderland theme which has been made available by Blizzard Entertainment, to get them in the holiday spirit.
The Overwatch Winter Wonderland theme will be available for the next three weeks and Hanamura and King’s Row is now adorned with festive lights, and there are also a number of new holiday items available for players to unlock.
Players can also enjoy a good snowball fight with their friends on the Ecopoint: Antarctica. checkout the Welcome to Winter Wonderland teaser trailer below to learn more about what you can expect to enjoy whilst playing Overwatch.
Michael Chu Senior Game Designer at Blizzard Entertainment explains a little more about the fun and new Winter Wonderland theme :
As with our previous seasonal events, instead of receiving regular Loot Boxes, during Winter Wonderland you’ll receive special Winter Loot Boxes filled with holiday-themed skins, highlight intros, emotes, victory poses, sprays, player icons, and voice lines.
Winter Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our Winter Wonderland collection. If there are particular skins, highlight intros, emotes, victory poses, sprays, or voice lines that you want, they can be purchased with in-game credits.
Any items you’ve unlocked will be available in your Hero Gallery to use even after the event has ended, so you can show off your holiday spirit year-round. Winter Wonderland is also bringing a brand-new brawl: Mei’s Snowball Offensive, 6v6, single-elimination snowball fight featuring everyone’s favorite climatologist — and she has some new tricks up her sleeve.
