Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland brings loot sacks and snowballs

Blizzard’s latest seasonal event for Overwatch sees the game awash with Christmas lights, snowballs, and dubious Santa outfits. Much like prior holiday events, it’s accompanied by Winter Loot Boxes and a special Brawl mode.

From today until 2 January 2017, every earned or purchased Winter Loot Box will contain at least one Winter Wonderland item. Those could be “profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros [or] skins”. While the Loot Boxes themselves will vanish in the New Year, anything you’ve nabbed from them will remain in your possession.

As well as all that, a new 6v6 Brawl called Mei’s Snowball Offensive will be taking place during the same period of time. It alters Mei’s Endothermic Blaster to shoot a giant snowball, and taking down an opponent only takes one hit (aim wisely!) Here’s a trailer for all that festive business.
