Once that happens, the Yeti will prove a formidable foe for the six Mei players. Mei's Yeti Hunt is Blizzard's idea of an Overwatch boss fight, Kaplan says.

Along with new holiday skins, and past event skins will return alongside Mei's Snowball Offensive alongside the new Brawl, Mei's Yeti Hunt. It's a race to see if the team of Meis wins, or the powerful Winston can smash them all. "Well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is".

Kaplan added that many of Overwatch's seasonal brawls are simply created to be fun, lighthearted and refreshing Arcade exercises that are available for a limited time. The seasonal pass for King's Row and Hanamura will be returning, and the Black Forest arena map will also get the Winter Wonderland treatment with its very own seasonal pass content.
