Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2019: All Skins, Dates, And Details
Overwatch Winter Wonderland's skins
Overwatch is ringing in the season with its Winter Wonderland 2019 event, which is now live on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The event runs from now until January 2, letting you partake in a new special holiday-themed game mode called Snowball Deathmatch (along with the returning modes Mei's Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunter). But the real star of any Overwatch event is the fresh set of skins to collect, and this year we got some holly jolly ones. Do you like ugly sweaters? Because Overwatch now has a humdinger. And if you like the color blue, you'll be extra pleased.
Four of the skins are Legendary and can be opened in loot boxes or purchased for in-game currency. Three more Epic skins can be earned through completing weekly challenges; as you win games in certain modes, you'll earn up to three rewards, including player icons, skins, and ultimately the skins. You can check the list of skins below, and see them for yourself in the gallery to plan your collection, or check out the other icons and sprays available on Blizzard's website.
