Audio Leaks Arrival Of An 'Overwatch' Christmas Event
"Overwatch" is probably one of the most played games this year. So it would not be a surprise that every event or planned events are devoured by fans. For a time now as the fans await of any updates from the game, hints of events and upgrades constantly hit the web. One of the latest we hear is an "Overwatch" Christmas event this festive season.
News of an upcoming Christmas event has come out after data miners uncovered and posted files that give a glimpse of an upcoming holiday event. IBTimes reported that the files include a new festive clip of the game's theme tune. There's also a clip that includes the voice of Athena mentioning the phrases; now entering the arena, challenger, and gladiator.
These files posted on Reddit clearly give one a taste of the upcoming event. Meanwhile, Gamespot claimed that the news of an "Overwatch" Christmas event does not come out as a surprise. Blizzard did have the Summer Games and Halloween celebrated by giving its popular shooter game a makeover in time for the events.(Listen to the other clip here.)
These past two events was a big success and the record of the events was notable. The Summer Games event has been able to record high engagement and participation in in-game customized items. That's not all but the succeeding Halloween themed event managed to surpass that record. With that level of success, it will be no surprise at all that the developer will continue the trend this time with an "Overwatch" Christmas event.
Besides, there is also the fact that earlier the developer has already dropped that it has plans to release more "Overwatch" downloadable contents and new in-game events. Surely you see a hint here. And if it does happen to have a festive event one of the expected things to see in the new event is the arrival of new decoration on the maps.
It is expected that there will be new skins for players to unlock plus fresh player icons and sprays. Well that is if it indeed happens, however at this time these things are still under the expected and reported but not yet confirmed stage so we don't really know if all of this will happen or just a part of it. Better stay tuned for more news!
