Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2019 event starts today, brings along new Sigma skin 'Rime'

Oh yeah! The Overwatch annual holiday season event, Winter Wonderland, kicks off today and is here to stay for another three weeks (Dec 10, 2019 to Jan 02, 2020). The information came from the horse’s mouth itself, i.e. Blizzard Entertainment, a few hours back through their official Twitter handle.

Winter Wonderland, as some of you may be familiar, is a winter-themed event that gives the game players a chance to rejoice some new cosmetics and game modes while the holiday season lasts. Last year’s event popularized two winter brawls namely, Yeti Hunter and Mei’s Snowball Offensive.

While it is yet to be unveiled whether the players will get to see any new seasonal game modes during this year’s event, Blizzard has at least teased a new skin for Sigma that comes along with this year’s event – Rime.

The teaser didn’t unveil any other skin or game mode, but players may also get hands-on the last years’ Yeti Hunter and Mei’s Snowball Offensive during the event. We can obviously expect more revelations in the leading days as the event unfolds. Rest assured, we’ll keep you posted about them.
