It's getting snowy again in Overwatch 2 with Winter Wonderland, the annual winter event. I guess some heroes will freeze a bit. Fortunately, we can dive into the winter world from our warm place in front of our screen and experience all the magic. We'll show you what we know so far about the event and what you can expect.

Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland 2022 Release Date

Overwatch players listen up, there's a lot coming your way in December! Starting with the release of the new season on December 6: A new Battle Pass, new map and even a new hero. Now, if that's not a reason to celebrate!

But the good news continues. This year's Christmas event, Winter Wonderland, will start shortly after the new season. From December 13 to January 4, it will be winter in Overwatch 2.


To say goodbye to this exciting time, a new mode will be added to the game on January 5. As soon as we have more information about it, you'll find it here. But all in all, we are very hyped about these new upcoming highlights.

If you missed anything about Overwatch 2 Season 2, no worries, we got you. You can find all details here:

Winter Wonderland: Skins and Cosmetics

Blizzard has kept us in the dark about this event so far. It hasn't been officially confirmed yet, which maps (and maybe modes?) will get a makeover, or which heroes will get special skins. But we have stumbled across some information anyway.

In the trailer of Season 2, Brigitte can be seen in the style of an ice warrior. But she is not the only one! Echo and Bastion can look forward to exclusive winter skins as well. Echo as a Christmas Angel and Bastion as a Ginger Bread Man just look beautiful.

Need a new controller for a new season? Then check this out.

If it stays like last year, we can expect to a total of eight skins. Whether these will end up in the Battle Pass or in the store is still unclear. As soon as we know more about it, you can read it here.
