Overwatch has rung in the holiday season with its annual Winter Wonderland event on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The event will run from December 10 through January 2, and includes a new game mode, new cosmetics and skins, and weekly challenges.

The new mode is a mini-game dubbed "Snowball Deathmatch." It's an eight-player free-for-all where everyone plays as Mei with a snowball gun, but there's a twist. Mei gets a new "Catch" ability allowing her to catch enemy snowballs and add it to her own ammo count. The first player to score 15 eliminations wins.

The event will also feature seven new skins--four Legendary that can be opened in loot boxes, and three Epic that can be earned through weekly challenges. The Epic skins include Ugly Sweater Soldier 76 (Week 1), Holly Moira (Week 2), and Snow Angel Mercy (Week 3). Legendaries include Jotunn Doomfist, Mountain Man McCree, Rat King Reaper, and Rime Sigma. Plus, as usual, you can earn a collection of new player icons and sprays.

The event comes alongside a significant new patch. That update adds a new "While You Wait" feature that lets you pick from various options to toy with as you wait to find a match. You could use a practice range, skirmish, play a little deathmatch, or even enter a custom game mode. It also includes a number of bug fixes and hero balance updates, which you can read about here.

Switch Exclusive Sports Story Is A Golf Story Sequel, And It Sounds Wild

Switch Exclusive Sports Story Is A Golf Story Sequel, And It Sounds Wild

Nintendo Switch exclusive Golf Story is getting a sequel: Sports Story. Announced via a trailer during Nintendo's latest Indie World Showcase, Sports Story expands on Golf Story's wacky take on a golf-centered game to tell an even more wild story that sees you play a wide variety of different sports.

The new Sports Story trailer, embedded below, showcases a return of Golf Story's golf mechanics and the addition of tennis, soccer, baseball, volleyball, and fishing too. Like its predecessor, Sports Story will use these sports to create unique interpretations of classic RPG missions and tropes, such as dungeons, spy missions, and more. Also, like Golf Story, Sports Story will be a Switch exclusive, releasing for Nintendo's hybrid console in mid-2020.

For those who haven't played it, Golf Story is one of the best RPGs of 2017, following a man who decides to quit his job and leave his long-time girlfriend to go pursue profession golfing after having not played the sport in 20 years. The graphics, storytelling, and characters are all reminiscent of Earthbound--but instead of engaging in typical RPG turn-based battles, all of your problems are solved through golfing. And I do mean all of your problems, ranging from battling the undead to solving a Who Dunnit-style murder mystery. It's a very fun game, with excellent writing and a wonderfully humorous story.

Axiom Verge 2 Will Launch On Nintendo Switch In 2020; New Trailer Released

Axiom Verge 2 Will Launch On Nintendo Switch In 2020; New Trailer Released

During the latest Indie World Showcase, Nintendo announced that Axiom Verge is getting a sequel. Axiom Verge 2 is scheduled to release sometime in Fall 2020.

The announcement only confirmed Axiom Verge 2 would be releasing for Nintendo Switch, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the game won't release on several of the same platforms as its predecessor--such as PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It's probably unlikely Axiom Verge 2 will release on PS Vita and Wii U, the other two systems that saw releases of the first game.

Axiom Verge is a side-scroller metroidvania that also takes gameplay inspiration from games like Contra, Blaster Master, and Bionic Commando. The game was entirely developed by Tom Happ, who also did the art and music for the game--an undertaking we've learned can be emotionally and mentally taxing. Nintendo's announcement did not reveal whether Happ is the sole developer behind Axiom Verge 2 as well.

In GameSpot's Axiom Verge review, Peter Brown wrote, "Axiom Verge is a game that's easy to fall in love with because it hits so many high notes. It takes the metroidvania model and adds layers of ingenuity that are in a league all of their own, the most notable being the Address Disruptor. Yes it's occasionally drab looking, and some enemies may not fit in with the rest of the world, but when a game is this good, these blemishes quickly fade into the back of your mind."

Axiom Verge 2 wasn't the only sequel announced during the Indie World Showcase. Nintendo also revealed the Switch exclusive Golf Story is getting a sequel called Sports Story.
