Overwatch kicks off this year’s Winter Wonderland event

Blizzard have launched their regular annual Winter Wonderland event in Overwatch, with this year's edition bringing along some new skins and a new version of Mei's regular festive mode.

This year dubbed 'Snowball Deathmatch' it sees two teams made of Meis with their own snowball guns, but this time they have the ability to 'catch' thrown snowballs to replenish their own ammo. Whoever racks up 15 eliminations first wins.

Naturally, there's a bunch of new cosmetics to nab – including a set of challenges that can allow you to earn skins like Soldier 76's Ugly Sweater skin, a Holly skin for Moira and a Snow Angel skin for Mercy, all of Epic rarity.

The event runs from now until January 2 in Overwatch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC – you can check out a trailer for the Winter Wonderland event below.
