Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event returns December 12

Overwatch Winter Wonderland

It begins next week and introduces a variety of new content for free, in addition to bringing back some of what we saw a year ago.

Players will also have a chance to earn holiday-themed skins, though Kaplan was a bit cagey about who and what, though he did say some might be good for Junkrat, Hanzo and Roadhog. Today, Blizzard announced that the Overwatch Winter Wonderland seasonal event would be making a return on December 12, likely lasting until January 2, as each event is usually three weeks long.

Players from across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC will all be able to jump into Overwatch's wintery world next week. Skins from previous year will return, as they have in past events, and new items will join them. Those two will make a return, while the Arena map Black Forest will also receive one of these seasonal passes.

Previously, Overwatch received a new hero in Moira, which was a cause for concern for the game's tech team. A limited-time mode, Mei's Snowball Offensive, will also return and now be playable on both Ecopoint: Antarctica and this winterized version of Black Forest. "We really wanted to try something different and fun for this year's event and it's the idea of what we call a boss fight", Kaplan said.

Huawei releases Android Oreo update for Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro
First of all, users running B322 of Android Oreo beta program are first to receive the update, beginning December 5. The beta update of Android 8 .0 Oreo update was ended in early November month for the Huawei Mate 9 smartphones.

The person playing as Winston has to run around the map picking up meat to build up his ultimate ability, Primal Rage.

Speaking of Mei, Blizzard is planning a new event around the snowy scientist. When the Yeti is defeated, the group of Meis wins, whereas if a certain number of Meis die, the Winston player wins.

"I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kind of silly and kind of ridiculous and well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is". He said the point is "just to be fun and light and refreshing for a short period of time", rather than a serious, truly competitive mode that will be used in esports.
