Jeff Kaplan, the game director of Overwatch, has unveiled the new seasonal event prepared for winter. The December update will re-propose the battle of snowballs of last year, and will introduce a new game mode, in which you can play Mei and chase Winston. The new game mode is entitled, in fact, Yeti Hunt.
The King's Row and Hanamura maps will be re-proposed in winter version, covered with snow. And speaking of the latter, the battle of snowballs will take place on the Black Forest Arena map.
According to Kaplan, the clash with the Yeti will be one boss fight, which will see a team of five Mei lined up against a player who controls only Winston. The latter must try to avoid the scientists until he has gobbled up enough snacks to activate it rage mode; at that point it is up to the opposing players to escape, with the help of an extra skill, provided for the occasion - ice trap.
The update will arrive the 12 December, and will include Christmas attire for Hanzo, Junkrat and Roadhog.
