From Blizzard:

In Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017, group up with friends new and old and see if you can hunt down the Yeti—and do it in style with the newest seasonal cosmetic additions.

New Brawl: Yeti Hunt
This season's Brawl is a 5v1 experience, pitting five Mei "Hunters" against one "Yeti" Winston. The Yeti must kill the Hunters five times to win; the Hunters must kill the Yeti once to claim victory. The Brawl takes place on a reskinned Nepal Village map—the perfectly snowy setting for a Yeti battle.

Yeti Winston has increased health and armor, making him a formidable foe. Meat packs are sprinkled around the map for him, which will fuel his ultimate. Mei has her usual abilities, but her Ice Wall and Ice Block times are reduced...and while she can freeze Yeti Winston, there's one catch—she can only freeze him in Rage mode.

We're also bringing last year's Winter Wonderland brawl back for an encore: Mei's Snowball Offensive!

Winter Wonderland Goodies
The Winter Wonderland collection features more than 150 items, including new skins like Ice Fisherman Roadhog and Avalanche Bastion.

To make your favorite Winter Wonderland cosmetics even easier to collect, we've lowered the cost of last year's goodies; Legendary skins from 2016 are 1000 credits, while Epic, Rare, and Common prices have been lowered to 250, 75, and 25 credits, respectively. Winter Wonderland 2017 Legendary Skins are 3000 credits, while Epic, Rare, and Common Skins are 750, 225, and 75 credits, respectively. Alongside previous changes to goodies and cosmetics, that means it'll be easier to nab your favorite 2016 and 2017 winter looks.
