Overwatch, Walking in a ‘Winter Wonderland’ event

‘Tis the season for snow-topped payloads and winter festivities! Winter Wonderland 2019 is now live on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Brand-new rewards are available this year, so don’t forget to log in from now until January 2 to deck the halls of your cosmetic collection!


This year’s Winter Wonderland event ushers in a new mini game mode called ‘Snowball Deathmatch.’ This is an eight-player free-for-all deathmatch where everyone will play as Mei, with a modified snowball gun like the one from Mei’s Snowball Offensive.

Mei will also get a new ability in this game mode: ‘Catch’ allows you to try and catch an enemy snowball and, if successful, add it to your ammo count. The first player to get to 15 eliminations wins!
