Overwatch's Winter Wonderland Event Returns Next Week

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland Event Returns Next Week

'tis the holiday season.

Blizzard has revealed that the Winter Wonderland event for Overwatch will be kicking off later this month. It marks the third year in a row that the event has featured for the holiday season in the hero shooter.

In the tweet just below from the official Overwatch Twitter account, the dates for the event were revealed. Winter Wonderland kicks off for all players on December 11, and will be sticking around until January 2, 2019.

But it's not a new Overwatch event without some new character skins. Unfortunately, Blizzard hasn't revealed any new skins for the return of the Winter Wonderland event in 2018, although it is worth noting that all past skins from the seasonal event will be returning to loot boxes from December 11, like the one just below.

If you want a complete list of all previous character skins from past iterations of the Christmas event, head over to our Overwatch Winter Wonderland guide.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
