OVERWATCH WINTER WONDERLAND

December 12 January 1

In Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017, group up with friends new and old and see if you can hunt down the Yeti—and do it in style with the newest seasonal cosmetic additions.

This year, we’re celebrating with a new brawl: Yeti Hunter, as well as bringing back Mei’s Snowball Offensive. We’ve decked the halls of Black Forest, King’s Row, and Hanamura. But we know what you really want: presents! Unlock over 50 new seasonal items—including legendary skins like Snow Owl Ana, Rime Sombra, Beachrat Junkrat, and Ice Fisherman Roadhog—alongside winter gear from last year at reduced credit costs.

Bundle up and leap into the Nexus for a special Winter Veil quest chain, with special rewards for playing games during the event, from a Winter Veil 2017 Spray at 2 games to a Winter Veil 2017 Mount when you win 5 games!

Outside the game, you can purchase or gift the Winter Loot Chest through the Blizzard Shop. With new skins including Greatfather Winter Malfurion, Winter’s Helper Valla, and Season’s Reapings Malthael and a new Gingerbread mount, you and your friends will be warm for all of Winter Veil.
