It's that time of year: Overwatch's seasonal event for the holidays, Winter Wonderland, returns December 12 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, developer Blizzard Entertainment announced today. He added that holiday skins are also on the way for "two of our favorite Junkers" - i.e., Junkrat and Roadhog.

Like last year's Winter Wonderland, players can expect a chance to get a number of theme-appropriate legendary skins. He also says that Winter Wonderland will include a seasonal pass-over of some of the maps, including the return of snowy Hanamura and King's Row, as well as a new seasonal pass on the Black Forest arena map. Mei's Snowball Offensive game mode will move to the Black Forest, but be available on Ecopoint: Antarctica still, too. Roadhog and Junkrat are confirmed to receive new Legendary skins, though they won't be the only ones included; fans were upset with the number of Legendaries a year ago.

Finally, a completely new game mode will be Mei's Yeti Hunt - an asymmetrical 1 v 5 boss fight. In a new developer update, the team behind the wildly successful shooter revealed all of the new plans surrounding Overwatch's Winter Wonderland, which will promptly begin next week! Set on the Nepal map, Mei's Yeti Hunt does still focus on characters shooting each other - but there's a twist.

A team of five Meis will team up against a single Winston wearing a Yeti skin. Everyone playing as Mei tries to find Winston and take him down. Once he's collected enough, he'll enter Primal Rage mode, at which point the Meis have to flee to avoid being killed.

"I know a lot of you are thinking that this sounds kinda silly and kinda ridiculous", Kaplan said in his video to the Overwatch community. Kaplan added that many of Overwatch's seasonal brawls are simply created to be fun, lighthearted and refreshing Arcade exercises that are available for a limited time. Are you excited for the return on Overwatch Winter Wonderland?
