Torbjorn from Overwatch dressed up as Santa

If you're currently wondering whether you should spend your hard earned currency for some fancy new Overwatch skins, I would recommend you stay your hand because Christmas is coming! And as is tradition with Blizzard games, the Christmas season is bringing with it a whole bunch of new cosmetics to collect, as well as a new and so far unannounced holiday event (similar to Junkenstein's Revenge)!

As per Blizzard's recent announcement, the festivities will begin on December 13, but that's as far as concrete information goes. However, if you're interested in some unconfirmed details the folks from Facepunch have managed to dig up, here's the full list of heroes that will be getting either a costume, an emote, or a highlight intro. But before you dive in, do bear in mind that all of this is still strictly in rumor territory, and as such is in no ways guaranteed to appear on December 13. With that said, here's the list:

Heroes that will receive one of the following: a costume, an emote, or a highlight intro:

Widowmaker

Reinhardt

Mercy

Symmetra

Reaper

Sombra

Roadhog

D.Va

Ana

Soldier: 76

Lúcio

Heroes that will receive two of the following: a costume, an emote, or a highlight intro:

Winston

McCree

Mei

Pharah

Zarya

Tracer

Zenyatta

And as an added little bonus, Torbjorn will be getting an emote, a costume, and a highlight intro! All hail Santa Tobjorn!

I'm afraid that's it as far as the currently available information goes. Once Blizzard finally releases more details I'll make sure to update you, but until then here's a very Christmassy King's Row to keep you company:
