A Mercy for every mood
Blizzard has begun sharing the latest batch of Overwatch character skins ahead of next week’s Winter Wonderland event. I was hoping we’d see creative festive designs. So far, the results are mixed.
The first skin, Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy, is the closest match to what I was suggesting. She can go hang out with Nutcracker Zenyatta, who I am still afraid is going to murder me in my sleep.
Straight from Sweetzerland.
Play as pixie perfect SUGAR PLUM FAIRY MERCY (Legendary). 🧚

Next up is Arctic Fox Lúcio. Love the guy, but extreme snow gear is just not my aesthetic.
Level up your sleet skills.

Then there’s Snowboarder Zarya. She’s at the top of my list for “skins I won’t earn in a loot box and will have to buy next year when the in-game currency pricing comes down to an obtainable level.”

Biathlon Widowmaker is dropping in too. Of course she’d participate in a winter sport that’s part cross-country skiing, part rifle shooting. We all should’ve seen it coming!
Ready to win frost place!

Finally, more of that otherworldly goodness. Krampus Junkrat is on my wavelength.

Winter Wonderland 2018 will brighten up Overwatch on December 11, and we’ll have the rest of the month to try and earn anything and everything we can. The event ends on January 2, 2019.
