On this page you'll find all of the Winter Wonderland 2017 skins, with a gallery of last year's cosmetic items and new items to be added shortly.
The Christmas season is very nearly upon us, and if Overwatch's 2017 events follow the same pattern as they have all year long then we'll see the return of Winter Wonderland in just a few weeks from now. This fantastically festive affair added a tonne of incredible new cosmetic items to the game at the end of last year, as well as some re-themed maps and a new snowball fight mode for the Arcade.
Blizzard's followed a pretty well-established pattern for recycled events at this point: bring back last year's character skins at a reduced cost, introduce a whole lot more at a much higher price point, and make a few tweaks here and there to the new PVE content. In the absence of any announcements about things being done differently this time around, it seems extremely likely that Blizzard will do the same for Winter Wonderland 2017.
In this article we've highlighted all of last year's Winter Wonderland skins, and will update it with all of the new skins as soon as they become available. If there are any leaks we'll slot the details in here, but once the update's actually live in the game we'll grab high quality assets straight from the client and add them to the gallery.
If you'd like the lowdown on everything that's currently known about this year's in-game Christmas celebrations, make sure you take a look through our massive Winter Wonderland guide. We've also put together a page on the likely Winter Wonderland start date and times - we feel pretty confident about our predictions on that front!

Winter Wonderland 2017 Summary
Although we can't be exactly sure what will turn up again this year, here's a quick summary of last year's Winter Wonderland content.
- A new mode called Mei's Snowball Offensive was added to the game for the duration of the event. This was a single-elimination brawl where players competed to one-hit-kill enemy players using a single-charge snowball launcher.
- Hanamura and King's Row were both given a bit of a festive makeover, with sprinklings of snow here and there.
- Mystery Heroes was temporarily renamed Winter Mystery. The core gameplay remained the same, but play was restricted to the two rethemed maps outlined above.
- In total, 12 Skins, 3 Emotes, 7 Victory Poses, 51 Sprays, 23 Voice Lines, 26 Player Icons and 2 Highlight Intros were added! These were to be found in the Winter Wonderland Loot Boxes, alongside the usual cosmetic items.
