Gamers Elite already talked about Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 but now I actually have some content and images of what the event really looks like. If you played in last years event you should also know that this year the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 is significantly different in terms of new skins and content!
Originally when they (Blizzard) first shared the event we only knew about a few skins; Junkrat, Hanzo, and Roadhog. But, these skins for the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 event were not actually shown to us when they were first teased!
Now we get to see ALL of the new skins available – you can check out the images for each character below. But beyond just the new characters, the old characters also have some skins available for you as well.
For the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017, there is also a winterized map for The Black Forest and a new “winter” mode called Yeti Hunt. All of the themed content is also returning from last years event as well.
The Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 event is available for FREE for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 and it should also be mentioned that if you log in during the event (before January 1st) you will also get a free seasonal loot box.
“Celebrate the holiday season with Winter Loot Boxes, filled with new skins, emotes, highlight, player icons, sprays, voice lines, and more. You can also purchase items you missed from last year’s event with credits for a discounted price. Over 150 cosmetic items are available, but don’t wait too long—these Loot Boxes will disappear faster than holiday desserts.”
There are also a few videos available for the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 event as well:
