Of course, there will be plenty of Legendary skins to be had, including a certain long-awaited Hanzo look first teased in last year's Christmas comic.

Overwatch lead developer Jeff Kaplan didn't show us any gameplay footage of the event, but his description makes it sound like a very one-sided game of Pac-Man. The newly decorated Black Forest serve as a new host for the return of Mei's Snowball Offensive, and you'll also still be able to play in Antarctica.

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland seasonal event returns December 12, bringing with it old and new holiday-themed character skins as well as a new Brawl, Mei's Yeti Hunt.

Champions League last-16 teams confirmed
Diego Simeone insisted Atletico Madrid's Champions League campaign was not a failure after they were eliminated on Tuesday. Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid , Juventus , Sevilla, Porto or Shakhtar Donetsk.

Winter Wonderland will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 when it launches next Tuesday, and the full line-up of 2017 seasonal skins will likely be revealed soon. "I think it's one of the most gorgeous jobs that our environmental artists have ever done", he says.

Finally, a completely new game mode will be Mei's Yeti Hunt - an asymmetrical 1 v 5 boss fight. This new mode will pit five Mei players against a single overpowered Winston (no doubt sporting his Yeti skin). If he fully charges it up, the Meis will need to do whatever they can to escape. Once Winston has enough meat, his Primal Rage ultimate will activate, sending him into a monstrous fury.

Aside from cosmetics, Mei's Snowball Offensive will also return from previous year, which pits two teams of Meis against each other in a snowball fight-style conflict. If Winston, an innocent yeti who's just trying to live his life, man, falls amidst the Meis' blizzard of senseless violence, then they win.
