The initial reveal went live on Wednesday, Dec. 15, via a Tweet posted to the verified Overwatch Twitter account. Here's what we know about the skin.
With Team 4 already confirming that they will also be dropping a Sleighing D.Va skin and a Reindeer Orisa skin for the event, it's only right that they added an offering dedicated to the cool climate as well to set the mood.
Expect the new skin to be one of the most popular variants for the agent going forward. From the clean blue and black colorway to the glowing details of Genji snowflake-inspired armor, Team 4 definitely understood the assignment with this one.
Fans of the cyborg DPS will be likely able to unlock the Legendary Ice Wraith skin in Loot Boxes, or in exchange for 3000 credits, during the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2021 event live from Dec. 16 to Jan. 6.
The new skin is one of four new Legendary skins to be announced for the event thus far, as in addition to the two aforementioned skins, Baptiste appears primed to receive a new Snowboarder rendition as well.
Judging by how Overwatch's events usually go, we'd also expect there to be three new Epic skins that players could unlock for free by completing weekly challenges, as well as a special limited-time mode.
