The curtain has been raised and Overwatch is holding its seasonal event in the Winter Wonderland. Yes, time for snowball fight and surely Mei will lead many other heroes in new costumes to star in this snowy field.
The holiday event starts from December 13th to January 2nd,2017. Gifts are wrapped with 100 new cosmetic trimmings for you . As with previous events, Winter Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from 2016 Winter Wonderland collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more! While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these cordial customization options in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration. Once unlocked, item will be permanent in your pack, but do remember to collect them all before January 2nd.
As the most intimate hero to snow, Mei is turning into the organizer or this snowy event. She is bringing a 6V6 map named Mei’s Snowball Offensive and Mei's Endothermic Blaster will fire a single super powered snowball instead of previous freezing shots. All players are going to play a Mei and taking down an enemy only takes one hit, but a miss can be costly. Once your weapon is empty, your enemies will have the advantage as you search for the nearest snow pile to reload, snow is not simply the theme for this holiday! More gorgeously is Mei’s Ultimate, which turns her blaster into a semi-automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.
