Mei's Snowball Offensive, which appeared for the first time past year as part of the winter seasonal event, is set to make a return.

Hundreds of firefighters battle dynamic brush fire in Southern California
A massive wildfire , named the Skirball fire, has overtaken some of the area near the roadway and has threatened residents nearby. Citywide, about 600 officers were assigned to coordinate security and various "firefighting events, " Beck said.

Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan hinted that it's a fan-favorite Hanzo look that showed up in an Overwatch digital comic. The Winter Wonderland exclusive mode is now playable on both the Ecopoint Antarctica and Black Forest maps, and it's joined by a new "silly and ridiculous" mode known as Mei's Yeti Hunt.

In case you were anxious, yes, there will also be new skins. Black Forest arena map has also received a seasonal pass.

But Apple executives later told Reuters that it plans to appeal the ruling at Europe's second-highest court, saying the company had been targeted because of its success.

Kaplan discusses the Winter Wonderland brawl, and seasonal brawls in general, in the developer update video below. Either way, as a huge fan of asymmetrical multiplayer game modes, I'm really stoked for this as Kaplan has stated that Yeti Hunt is in no way meant to be a serious competitive mode but is designed purely for fun. This new mode will pit five Mei players against a single overpowered Winston (no doubt sporting his Yeti skin).

The Overwatch Winter Wonderland event will kick off on December 12. The Mei's must take out the Yeti as a team or face the beast's rage.

Starbucks' New China Store Is the Size of a Supermarket
Princi is the exclusive food offering in all Starbucks Roastery locations , including Seattle, Shanghai and upcoming locations. The company already has over 600 stores in Shanghai - the largest number of stores in any city where Starbucks has a presence.

In each match's early goings, Winston has to elude the crack team of adorable, infuriating ice assassins and collect power-ups until he can go into primal rage mode, at which point the tables turn. At the beginning, everyone playing as Mei will try to hunt down Winston and kill him. I don't want to reveal them all, I want to leave some surprise for you when you log into the game. In this Overwatch winter event guide, we'll be keeping you up to date with everything you need to know about the Winter Wonderland event, including what dates it starts and ends on, as well as all the brand new legendary character skins featured within.
