Overwatch Holiday Event

Christmas time is getting closer and Blizzard wants to celebrate with the community. Players, in fact, can now download the Overwatch Holiday Event update, called Winter Wonderland.

Besides bugs fixing, this event brings Christmas skins, emotes, and highlight intros for every character from the roster, featuring a new brawl called Mei’s Snowball Offensive, described below.

“In this brawl, Mei’s Endothermic Blaster no longer unleashes a stream of frost or shoots icicles. Instead, it’s been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball. 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, so don’t forget to cover your retreat with ice walls and cryo-freeze to block their attacks—and when the battle starts to heat up, you can activate Mei’s Ultimate, which turns her blaster into a semi-automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.”

This Overwatch Holiday Event will end on Januray 2, 2017.

However, Overwatch is also unknown for its large number of cheaters and trolls. This disease has been affecting the community since the game’s release, but Blizzard wants things to change.

Jeff Kaplan recently stated on Blizzard Forums that the team is working to deal with trolls and cheaters, reviewing their policies for the game along with the punishments.

Our first step is reviewing our current reporting system. I think some changes will help people in this sense. Once we can update the reporting design, we are also going to internally review all of our policies, including those regarding punishments.

Overwatch is a first person shooter developed by Blizzard, available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
