Overwatch Winter Wonderland start date is Dec. 11, Blizzard announced Tuesday. The announcement came through a short clip that teased a new addition to the event.

The annual ​Overwatch Christmas event will run until Jan. 2, which is the event's typical duration. The event will feature the Yeti Hunt and Mei's Snowball Offensive game modes.


Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed the event will not feature any new game modes. Blizzard's new clip teased at a re-skinned Blizzard World map created specifically for the event. A few of the Overwatch maps receive a temporary snowy look during the event, like Hanamura. It is unknown if any other maps will have a Christmas-theme to them for the event.
