Christmas has come early to the Overwatch (opens in new tab) fandom. Right now, not only can players face off in Mei’s Snowball Offensive - a special 6v6 mode where heroes lob super-powered snowballs at each other - they can also open up special Winter Loot Boxes to receive holiday-themed skins for 12 of the game's heroes.
Twitter account Overwatch Feed has posted the new skins for everyone to see, and in keeping with the spirit of the season, we've gone ahead and ranked them, from naughtiest to nicest.
New Christmas skin for Lucio! "Andes" pic.twitter.com/3SZkFcSMVGDecember 13, 2016
Andes Lucio. It's cute, but it's also basically just Lucio in a turquoise Santa hat. Next?
Here's "Frosted" Zarya! pic.twitter.com/HCe9xxyj1QDecember 13, 2016
Frosted Zarya. Again, certainly not ugly by any stretch, but also not particularly festive. Where's your jolly spirit, Z?
Here's... "Jingle" Tracer! pic.twitter.com/PWtPWnbjfrDecember 13, 2016
Next up we have Jingle Tracer. I'm relatively sure it's intentional, but seeing someone clad in all green with "-ingle" in their name just makes me think of a certain Zelda character.
For Mei it's "Mei-rry"! (Gotta love the pun) pic.twitter.com/4VGVE0cNWGDecember 13, 2016
The Mei-rry Mei costume gets bonus points for being a pun and for the cute little bow on her robot's head.
Reaper looks spooky as hell. The skin is "Shiver" pic.twitter.com/GIVshUmudHDecember 13, 2016
Damn, take a look at Shiver Reaper here. That's a pretty cool look buddy. But you know what's cooler than being cool?
The "Frostbite" skin for Pharah looks awesome. pic.twitter.com/kv8Oe8WfO4December 13, 2016
Ice cold! And that's precisely what Frostbite Pharah is.
Santabjörn is real, his name is "Santaclad" pic.twitter.com/WNifsaYElYDecember 13, 2016
Santaclad Torbjorn doesn't look thrilled to have bells dangling from his beard. But really, it's the twin trees atop his shoulders that sell this look.
And the last one is... Nutcracker Zenyatta. Even better than all the concept skins we had for him. pic.twitter.com/sRV9gcA4hCDecember 13, 2016
Look into the cold, unfeeling eyes of Nutcracker Zenyatta and know inner peace (before he blows you up).
Even Sombra has one! It's called Peppermint pic.twitter.com/e5HUoZ8MHgDecember 13, 2016
Sombra may be new to the game, but she's already got the hang of this holiday skin thing. Meet Peppermint Sombra.
New Christmas skin for McCree! "Scrooge" pic.twitter.com/lzcq9FnF8sDecember 13, 2016
Nobody takes the holidays off when they're working for Scrooge McCree.
Winston is AMAZING. The skin is "Yeti". Love it. pic.twitter.com/cyRivWYbrgDecember 13, 2016
Yeti Winston looks grumpy. Maybe he wasn't invited to the office Christmas party?
Roadhog as... Rudolph. Love it. pic.twitter.com/wuU8yMTbhDDecember 13, 2016
And closing out the list, Rudolph Roadhog is what happens when Christmas gets hardcore. But he's also the Most Nicest. Wookit his widdle light-up belly button!
Consider this a warning: People adore Overwatch's characters already, and dressing them up in special costumes only intensifies those feelings; you're about to see a lot of fan art (opens in new tab) start cropping up.
