Blizzard has rolled out a new Overwatch comic that ties into this year’s Winter Wonderland event, and more specifically the Yeti Hunt brawl that sees five Meis squaring off against a single, Hulked-out Winston, who’s doing his best impersonation of a deranged abominable snowman.
I’ll be honest, I was a little confused at first: I couldn’t figure out why it seemed like Winston was doing the Jekyll-and-Hyde routine with this homicidal snow-gorilla. Clearly, I am not a committed Overwatch guy, but fortunately I know someone who is, and he patiently explained to me that the Yeti is in fact a Winston skin that comes into play in the brawl. After that it all made sense, although I can’t help but notice that poor Winston was chilled out at the end of the comic and then Mei dropped the hammer on him anyway. That’s hardly sporting.
According to legend, a dangerous Yeti roams the peaks above Nepal…
But who will be brave enough to hunt down this terrifying creature?
