Overwatch’s 2020 Winter Wonderland Event

Winter Wonderland will make an appearance as the year draws to a close. Winter Wonderland is a holiday festival with a Christmas theme. New co-op modes, map skins, and some festive skins, of course, come with the event. As with previous Winter Wonderlands, the latest festive loot boxes can be found with products such as skins, emotes, voice lines, and sprays.

As well as a revolving collection of arcade modes, Overwatch supports both casual and ranked matchmaking. And the game has since become a common sport, featuring the Overwatch League that began in 2018. For Blizzard, Winter Wonderland was both a critical and financial success, exceeding more than 30 million players and generating more than US$1 billion in sales during its first year.

The good news is that it is probably right around the corner for the 2020 Winter Wonderland gathering. Winter Wonderland is a reference to all the different religious holidays at the end of December and beginning of January. But every single year, the actual event begins earlier than those holidays. In 2017, on December 12, the Winter Wonderland event began and brought us classic skins such as Casual Hanzo. On December 11, the game began a day earlier in 2018. The Winter Wonderland event began on December 10 last year and featured weekly competitions, which have become an awaited part of annual events.

On Tuesday, Dec. 8, fans can expect the 2020 Winter Wonderland event to commence. While some of the schedules of Overwatch’s developers were interrupted by COVID-19, activities were still launched this year on Tuesdays. Dec. 10 is also a possibility if a Thursday patch is scheduled. In Mei’s Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunter, the Winter Wonderland festival involves the return of two classic arcade modes each year. A festive makeover is also provided to maps like King’s Row and Blizzard Planet. For 2020’s Winter Wonderland festival, weekly challenges are almost assured, but the skins and incentives inside those challenges are yet to be announced.

Winter Wonderland 2020

The event is about the cold part of the year where you have a good excuse to cover yourself in scarves, caps, and jackets to see the theme in motion. You can take a look at the skins introduced by Blizzard in previous years. They have got a lovely little Tracer, an owl-themed Ana, a sizzling Hanzo, and a creepy Winston. Those are the skins you will be able to gain by collecting the Winter Wonderland loot boxes, plus the new ones, of course.

Via both Mei’s Yeti Search and Mei’s Snowball Offensive game modes, you can win simple loot boxes.

Mei’s Yeti Hunt is a 4v1 hunt between a group of Meis and a Winston that would probably be fun. It can also be maddening as you watch your ally Meis walk straight into the Winston, or if you get unlucky with a group of Meis that strategically trap you like the big yeti himself.

Mei’s Snowball Offensive is just maddening for the most part. It is a one-hit-kill arena where they added the ability to catch and throw snowballs back at each other without realizing that it is just not a fun mode.

Winter Wonderland’s best aspect is the map makeovers that take place over three maps, King’s Row, Blizzard World, and Hanamura. It is easier for players to cover up and plan for Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2020.

The annual Winter Wonderland event at Overwatch always brings the game with fresh skins, fun arcade modes, and winter-themed maps. This year by way of Mei’s Snowball Offensive, we could all use a little stress relief, so fans are probably wondering when the event will come, and we will be sure to keep you updated.
