One team will be comprised of five Meis, while the other will have only a single Winston playing the part of the Yeti. One such game is Overwatch, which will host its Winter Wonderland event for the second year in the row beginning next week.
Starting on December 12, Overwatch players can revel in some fun-filled, and snowy activities when the Winter Wonderland event returns.
This year, Snowball Offensive will be available on Ecopoint and the new winterised Black Forest arena. He added that holiday skins are also on the way for "two of our favorite Junkers" - i.e., Junkrat and Roadhog. It'll include everything from last year-skins, the Mei snowball fight mode, etc-as well as an entirely new boss fight mode. The Ecopoint: Antarctica map is also in the mix alongside the black Forest arena, along with winterized versions of numerous game's maps to coincide with the event. Essentially, it boils down to 5 Mei players taking on resident big lad Winston, who also happens to be player controlled. The Meis will hunt down the Yeti Winston as he tries to collect power-ups for his Primal Rage ability, with the Meis able to utilize ice traps and their usual ice walls to subdue Winston. If enough Meis go down, Winston wins (tons). When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins.
"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of silly and kind of ridiculous", said Kaplan of Mei's Yeti Hunt. "But the point of some of these seasonal brawls is just to be fun and light and refreshing for a short period of time".
