The christmas Overwatch event has been subject to leaks before its release sometime today. This time round, it concerns a potential game mode that could be included in the update.
According to a banner ad on gnn.gamer.com.tw, a new game mode entitled Mei’s Snow Fight will be included in the seasonal update. This was spotted by Overwatch fans over on Reddit, who posted the leak which apparently states: “Overwatch Brawl All new game mode, Mei’s Snow fight, Shoot in your face.”
This suggests that there will be a similar game mode to the Halloween Dr. Junkenstein’s Revenge mode, as well as Lucioball earlier in the year. The name also suggests a more light-hearted approach, though few details have been revealed so far.
A low-quality image of ol’ Jolly Saint Nick himself has been doing the rounds on social media outlets, particularly on Twitter, being portrayed by the character Torbjorn as Santa, accompanied by Lucio as some form of elf, and Mei sporting a green outfit seeming to portray Mrs Claus.
Also, Blizzard’s press site seems to have uploaded trailers and assets for Overwatch on December 1st, but the contents have yet to be revealed, suggesting that there are trailers to be revealed, most likely in the imminent future regarding the event.
Overwatch is scheduled to announce a brand new seasonal event today, with plenty of festivities to be included, with speculation leaning towards new skins, loot boxes, emotes, map changes and much more to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
