Content updates for the multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch have been out for a long time, but the developers continue to hold regular events. Ahead of New Year’s Eve, Blizzard has launched the Winter’s Tale event, which runs until January 5, 2021.
Regular containers were temporarily replaced with special containers containing various cosmetics. In addition to items already familiar from last year’s similar events, players will be able to get completely new ones, including legendary skins for Moira, May, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, and Zenyatta, as well as epic skins for Ana, Roadhog, and Junkrat, which are given for completing weekly tasks.
During the event, a new temporary mode, “Icy Assassination,” is available, where players participate in 4v4 team battles. Instead of death, characters are frozen here, but allies can melt them. To win, you need to freeze all opponents.
