You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why,
Mei’s gonna shoot you in the face with her snowball gun and if you’re a baby about it, everybody’s gonna laugh you out of town.
From now until 2 January, Overwatch is hosting its very own Winter Wonderland holiday event, with over 100 cosmetic thingies to collect and a special Brawl mode. In Mei’s Snowball Offensive, her Endothermic Blaster is replaced with – you guessed it, you clever elf! – a single-shot “super-powered” snowball gun that’s boosted up to a semi-auto snowball gun when her Ultimate ability is triggered. Ho ho ho.
“We’ve decked the halls of Hanamura and King’s Row, stuffed our Loot Boxes full of festive goodies, and arranged an extra-special snowball fight for you and your friends,” says Blizzard. “So, grab a mug of hot cocoa, put on your favorite ugly sweater, and get ready to jingle all the way to Overwatch‘s Winter Wonderland!”
The game has also been updated on PC and consoles, adding the new “Stay as Team” party-up option, new Symmetra abilities, and some festive fixes. You can read more about that over here.
