Overwatch Christmas Event: When & How To Play In New Arena

Overwatch Christmas is one of the much-awaited events for those who are currently playing the game.

The Christmas season is here and games are decking out the best holiday upgrades. Another reason why gamers should be excited is for the treats that Blizzard Entertainment has in store for them.

According to Express, there may be a new game event and arena. Though it hasn’t been officially announced by Blizzard yet, some fans came across hidden files about it.

Holiday Season Is Near

A Reddit user named Venxa discovered sound files of the game that mention the arena. According to Venxa, there will be new interactions between heroes, new announcer lines, and even an Overwatch Christmas jingle to wrap things up. These sound files clued in on a new arena that may just be made for the holiday season.

Some of the new lines included are “Now Entering the Arena,” “Challenger,” and “Gladiator.”

Though people are just basing it off the sound files found by Venxa, an Overwatch Christmas event is highly possible. This is because the game held a Halloween event last October.

There is no announced date of the Christmas event, but there are speculations that it will happen next month.

New Projects

In other news, Blizzard is now focusing on the character Symmetra after Sombra was officially released on the different gaming platforms. There were a few changes done to the character and she is officially the first hero to have a choice of Ultimates.

Not only can she choose between her brand new Shield Generator and teleporter, she also has a Photon Barrier. This barrier replaces her Photon shield, and allows her to generate a large energy barrier that blocks enemy fire.

Those who still don’t have their own copy of the game don’t need to fret as Black Friday is here.

According to PC Gamer, Blizzard is hosting its own Black Friday sale and the prices of the games have been reduced greatly. Overwatch has a 45% discount where the price is now at $34.99.


Overwatch is a first-person team-based multiplayer game by the same makers of Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft. It is available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
