The latter will be getting the appropriate holiday decorations along with Kings Row and Hanamura who got theirs past year. But, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan says a long-awaited Hanzo skin people have seen before (maybe in the comics) is on the way.

Now that we're on the other side of Thanksgiving and barreling toward Christmas, it's time for many games that have persistent player bases to kick off their holiday events.

Starting next week on Wednesday, December 13 on all platforms. Aside from the brawls, legendary skins themed after the yuletide season are also making their way.

This year an all new mode is being added alongside Mei's Snowball Offensive mode from last year. Also, the holiday-themed Hanamura and King's Row maps from previous years are returning too. When players queue up for Mei's Yeti Hunt, they'll be able to select if they prefer to play as Mei or the Yeti. Yeti Hunt will see a team of five Mei players - with slightly different abilities - have to hunt down one player as the Yeti aka Winston on a modified Nepal Village map. It's touted as a boss-fight kind of deal, but the fun part is, another player will be playing Winston, who might develop recurring nightmares of thousands of Meis shooting at them. Mei and Winston's new outfits are especially welcome since neither of them got any new costume options during the Summer Games or Halloween events.

In each match's early goings, Winston has to elude the crack team of adorable, infuriating ice assassins and collect power-ups until he can go into primal rage mode, at which point the tables turn.

Winter Wonderland launches for all Overwatch players across PC, Xbox One and PS4 on December 12.

"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of ridiculous and kind of silly, and I'm here to tell you it absolutely is", Kaplan said.
