Winter Wonderland Arcade Modes
This year’s Winter Wonderland has some icy arcade modes in store! The first playable mode during the event is Mei’s Snowball Offensive. Fire snowballs to knock out opponents in a 6v6 Elimination or an 8-player FFA Deathmatch ruleset.
The next available mode will be Mei’s Yeti Hunt, a 5v1 raid-boss brawl. A team of five Mei players must work together to set traps and freeze a rampaging Yeti that is stealing food from the local village. Be careful, if he steals too much meat he will go into a frenzy and quickly wipe out your team. Strategically, and carefully, set your traps to catch the Yeti!
The last mode will be Freezethaw Elimination. Players must eliminate all opponents by freezing them solid. Support your teammates and get them back into combat by thawing them back to life!
