Overwatch is hauling out the holly and preparing for its annual Winter Wonderland event. Blizzard has announced the dates for the event and teased one of the new cosmetics that will come with the update.
In a tweet from the official account, the studio confirmed that Winter Wonderland will run December 10-January 2. It also showed a brief video clip of “Rime Sigma,” a new skin for the most recent addition to the game with a frosty makeover.
The tease didn’t detail any other skins or limited-time events that will be coming with the event. Last year’s Winter Wonderland included an asymmetric multiplayer boss brawl called Mei’s Yeti Hunt, as well as the second year of Mei’s Snowball Offensive Brawl. It’s a relatively safe bet that this year’s event will also include a limited-time mode, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see exactly what it is.
Blizzard previously announced that the winter event would be coming this week, to clear up some misinformation about release timing that had been circulating. It will come alongside the 1.43 update, which includes some significant balance changes as well. Game director Jeff Kaplan has said that fans may expect fewer content updates while the team works on Overwatch 2.
