Overwatch has revealed a new skin for the 2018 Winter Wonderland event called “Arctic Fox” Lucio, that’s sure to become an instant fan-favorite.

Lucio already has his “Andes” skin for the Winter Wonderland event, which features snowboarding goggles and a blue santa hat.

He didn’t get a holiday skin last year, but it looks like 2018 is once again Lucio’s time to shine with the best Winter Wonderland skin of the year so far.

The “Arctic Fox” skin gives Lucio a helmet with little fox ears, and a big fluffy tail where his dreadlocks would be; so this skin should really appeal to certain internet subcultures out there.

His armor reads “Snow Fox”, which could mean Lucio has picked up a sponsor between now and 2016, when he last had a winter skin, who got him some cool new gear with which to shred the slopes.

Even though he’s from Brazil, Lucio seems to be a major winter sports enthusiast, with two hockey and now two snowboarding skins, unless this is meant to be an outfit for some kind of futuristic winter rave, which also makes sense.

Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event begins December 11, and we’re sure to see plenty more awesome seasonal skins revealed before then.

Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
