Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that Overwatch 2 will begin its festive Winter Wonderland event. New arcade modes, weapons charms, players icons and many more will be available including the Ice Queen Epic Brigitte Skin.
Mei’s Snowball Offensive
Mei’s Snowball Offensive is the first arcade mode lined up for this Winter Wonderland. Mei has traded her stream of frost and icicles for a snowball that instantly knocks out your opponents. Play either 6v6 Elimination or an 8-player Free-For-All Deathmatch ruleset.
Mei’s Yeti Hunt
Get ready to hunt in Mei’s Yeti Hunt, a unique 5v1 raid-boss brawl. A Yeti is stealing food from the local village, and it’s up to the team of five Mei players to set traps and freeze the rampaging Yeti—but be careful! If he steals too much meat, he will go into an outrage and can easily wipe out the enemy team. Carefully spread out, set your traps, and catch the Yeti.
Finally, Freezethaw Elimination is Overwatch 2’s version of freeze tag, where the goal is to freeze all the opponents by eliminating them while getting your own teammates back in the game by thawing them. No game is ever truly complete unless you make sure to chill each of your opponents to the bone in this fast-paced elimination game mode.
