Fans that buy this game now will be just in time for the Winter Wonderland season which is until January 1, 2017. This event includes brawls and new items. On the website it says a bit more about the event.
“This year, we’re celebrating with a new brawl: Yeti Hunter, as well as bringing back Mei’s Snowball Offensive. We’ve decked the halls of Black Forest, King’s Row, and Hanamura. But we know what you really want: presents! Unlock over 50 new seasonal items—including legendary skins like Snow Owl Ana, Rime Sombra, Beachrat Junkrat, and Ice Fisherman Roadhog—alongside winter gear from last year at reduced credit costs.”
Overwatch has also entered e-sports with Overwatch League and Overwatch World Cup. The Overwatch League started its preseason matches two weeks ago on December 6, 2017, but the official season does not start until January 10.
