Overwatch's third seasonal event is here, and it's full of cheer! It's a thing of happiness and will make you want to combine silly rhymes, break out in dance, and play Overwatch until you've unwrapped the 100 Christmas presents from Winter Wonderland.

Blizzard spread the Winter Wonderland collection over different hero allocations. For example, not every hero received a skin, some received a highlight intro or emote. If you thought the previous seasonal events had epic skins, wait till you see the Winter Wonderland collection. I just want to buy it all! Sadly, only Hanamura and King's Row received the Winter Wonderland "skin." In the video below, you can see the changes to Hanamura and it looks pretty amazing.

The new Symmetra wither her double ultimate is also now playable, so watch out for her more powerful Photon Projector, and six turrets. I covered her abilities and captured some gameplay footage while in PTR; you can check it out here. Other changes include the  "Stay As Team" button, which is incredibly useful, especially in Competitive Play. Keep an eye on the official Overwatch twitter account for more festive season celebrations.

Which cosmetics will you like to unlock from the Winter Wonderland collection? The Roadhog skin will be mine, buy or find in a Winter Loot Box, but it shall be mine! While we're talking about Overwatch - don't forget to vote for it as MWEB GameZone's 2016 GOTY.
