An ominous tweet invitation from Blizzard had recently spread about the Overwatch Holiday event. It did not have any specific details on it, just the date. But now we have everything that you would want to know about it!

“Overwatch is getting into the holiday spirit with a brand new seasonal event. We’ve decked the halls of Hanamura and King’s Row, stuffed our Loot Boxes full of festive goodies, and arranged an extra special snowball fight for you and your friends,” as seen in their post.

The Overwatch Winter Wonderland update will have some of your favorite heroes all dressed up in their Holiday costumes. Along with the update are new victory poses, new voice lines as well as the winter skins. The heroes that have the winter skin available to them are Lucio, Mccree, Mei, Pharah, Reaper, Roadhog, Sombra, Torbjörn, Tracer, Winston Zarya, and Zenyatta.

The loot boxes were also transformed into pretty gift boxes that are beautifully wrapped. Each loot box will contain at least one random item from the 100+ cosmetic trimmings available in the 2016 Winter Wonderland collection. This includes profile icons, skins, sprays, highlight intros, victory poses, emotes and more.

As with all the games themed events, it is only available for a limited amount of the time but the items that you’ve collected can be kept forever.

Also part of the update are Holiday themed maps: King’s Row, Hanamura, and Ecopoint Antarctica.
