A Rime Sigma skin will be included in Overwatch Winter Wonderland, which goes live Tuesday. Blizzard teased the skin Monday a day ahead of the event's release.
The skin feels like a crossover event as it bears striking resemblance to the Lich King from World of Warcraft. Sadly, this isn't a Arthas skin, but Sigma fans should ecstatic as the skin is his best one yet.
Rime Sigma Skin
The event will run from Dec. 10 through Jan. 2. Jeff Kaplan already stated the team would continue the seasonal events for Overwatch, but everything else will slow down for the launch of Overwatch 2. Winter Wonderland will probably see an old game mode return instead of a new one, so expect Mei's snowballs to make a return.
Blizzard hasn't revealed the rest of the cosmetic cast, but fans should expect at least another five to six legendary skins.
Patch 1.43 will also arrive on Tuesday bringing with it a new feature called "While You Wait."
The most notable hero adjustments in the current PTR which will be moved into the live version of Overwatch as a part of Patch 1.43 are nerfs to the shields of both Tanks in the double-barrier meta. Orisa's Protective Barrier has had its health reduced from 900 to 600, while Sigma received a more significant nerf, with his Experimental Barrier having its health reduced from 1500 to 900 and will regenerate by 30 less health per second while inactive.
Expect a meta shift with the winter event.
