Overwatch, the popular hero-shooter is known for seasonal events. 2018 is no exception as Blizzard announced that Winter Wonderland is making another appearance next week. Last year’s event featured two game types. One was a five vs. one mode that pit a team of Meis against Winston in his Yeti skin. The other mode was an entertaining snowball fight team deathmatch style event.

We don’t know yet if there will be new modes this year, but it’s safe to assume the existing game types will make an appearance. Additionally, fans should expect a batch of new skins to be released as well. To unlock these skins, players must earn or purchase loot crates. There are no guarantees, but if you don’t unlock specific skins, you can use coins to obtain them.
The 2018 Winter Wonderland will take place from December 11th until January 2nd. Are you a fan of Overwatch? Which seasonal event is your favorite?
