Winter Wonderland is a Holiday Event in Overwatch. It runs from December 13th to January 2nd.
Winter Wonderland Information
All in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced withWinter Loot Boxes, and they contain over 100 new cosmetics.
As with previous events, Winter Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our 2016 Winter Wonderland collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more. While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these cordial customization options in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration.
Once you've unlocked an item, it will be yours forever. The collection will be unavailable after January 2.
During the event, you can play a new brawl: Mei’s Snowball Offensive. Mei’s Snowball Offensive is a 6v6, single-elimination brawl. In this brawl, Mei's Endothermic Blaster no longer unleashes a stream of frost or shoots icicles. Instead, it's been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball. Taking down an enemy only takes one hit, but a miss can be costly. Once your weapon is empty, your enemies will have the advantage as you search for the nearest snow pile to reload. You can activate Mei's Ultimate, which turns her blaster into a semi-automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.
