Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland Christmas event

Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland 2022 is here and Blizzard have added a cool array of content to the event. Here’s everything we know about Overwatch 2’s very first Winter Wonderland 2022 event from its end date to new skins to LTMs.

Since Overwatch 2 launched, players have already had their Overwatch 2 experience enhanced by Season 1 and Season 2.

Not only that, but Blizzard has already delivered when it comes to seasonal events as Junkenstein’s Revenge brought the spookiness of the Halloween season to the game – along with a host of themed skins.

Now, shortly after the debut of Overwatch 2 Season 2, the devs have released the first Christmas event of Overwatch 2 – Winter Wonderland 2022, the returning fan-favorite Xmas tradition.

Here’s everything we know about Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland 2022, including when it’s set to end, and the exclusive skins up for grabs.

Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland end date

Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland 2022 began on Tuesday, December 13, just a week after Season 2 launched, giving players even more content to work with.

Players will have several weeks to bask in the Winter Wonderland and try to make the most of it as it will wrap up on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 – paving the way for Overwatch Season 3.

Blizzard have also stuck to the theme of bringing back limited-time content from years gone by in the way of Blizzard World and King’s Row getting Winter-themed variants.
