That time of year has come around once again, and the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event returns in 2022 as teased in the Season 2 trailer. Full of festive treats, both new and returning such as game modes, skins and much more. Lasting until January 4th 2023 here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event.
First of all, Mei’s Snowball Offensive is returning, a fast-paced, all-out snowball fight to really get into the holiday spirit. Yeti Hunt, the 5v1 raid boss mode in which you must capture the mighty Yeti is back, too. Joining these arcade modes this year, however, is Freezethaw Elimination. This brand-new game mode has you trying to freeze all players on the enemy team while thawing your own teammates out to see which team will be entirely frozen in the end.
