Most of what was found is new interactions between the heroes (especially for Sombra, but some others as well), but there are a few stand out references to other things.

Via Venxa on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/c...tch_%E3%83%84/

Christmas Theme (presumably for the holiday event, which will assuredly not be called Christmas in the actual game): https://clyp.it/idbkejls

Announcer (Athena) lines:
"Now entering the arena": https://clyp.it/ggo4pisy
"Challenger": https://clyp.it/vsyqbp1y
"Gladiator": https://clyp.it/g5kbh5dg

The person who dug up the sound files also speculated this is the loading music for the Arena mode: https://clyp.it/gsgev3oo

Really hoping for some Winston and D.Va love for this event. I would be surprised if Blizzard doesn't do Santa Winston.

Imagine we'll see some Ugly Sweater Soldier (or dad mode soldier), jack frost junkrat, and skimpy Ms. Claus Mercy.

I totally love the Christmas theme! I really want some sexy Christmas outfits.

Although, I'm saving my coins for the Chinese New Year event. I need those Asian designs.

As a skin for Winston. It just makes sense.

Also who is getting the inevitable Santa and/or Mrs Claus skin?

Winston, Mei and Sombra have no event skins yet - they are probably due.

Would it be reasonable to expect this to drop on December 1st? Season 2 ends today correct?

Gives them a week of downtime before new events.

Winston Claus, Mei-norah, and Sombra McClane

Edit: I'm pretty sure Mercy isn't getting a skin this time. She got one in each event so far, if they're sticking to the 3-4 legendaries and a handful of epics, it's her time to sit out.

What i really want is for legendary event dupes to give back 1000 coins instead of 500. Ideally id prefer if a dupe gave me 1500-2000 but i mean they gotta make money i guess?

This will be the first event with no EXP rollover either.

I think it's possible Mei doesn't get a full skin here since they're almost assuredly holding a Lunar New Year event.

I'd be surprised if they had more than four full skins per event, suggesting it will be a while before she gets a new skin in a seasonal event.

Her other legendaries are already better. Clearly she is on a downhill trajectory.

Would it be possible to make a "Witch Mercy-like" (you know what I mean) costume for Pharah? Wouldn't hitbox issues get in the way?

Reinhardt for sure. A lot of the Santa tradition comes from Germany, he's the most "good" character out of the three and looks the most like him.

Who's getting the Mrs Claus skin is the real question.

And then mollipen will show up with a pharmercy fanfic about cosplaying she found on some corner of the internet and we'll be like "uuuuh" and shortly after we'll inject it into our veins.

The only Blizzard game I got into before Overwatch was Hearthstone, so I never knew that. Makes a lot of sense though.

It doesn't matter that she's already had a Seasonal skin, we're getting a Santa's Little Helper Mercy skin because it will fund a new wing at Blizzard HQ.
