Having spent a LONG time yesterday explaining to Alice why jamming a Santa hat on a character does NOT an acceptable Christmas update make, I’ve decided to ask YOU:
Which games are doing holiday updates well this year?
“Well” could mean anything from creating a truly festive feel with their characters to doing something interesting/weird/subversive. In terms of cosmetics, we’ve been admiring the hardcore Santa paint jobs for American Truck Simulator – they’re just over a quid – and the CS:GO chickens have been coaxed back into their festive wooly jumpers (green this year). If I were a Tracer player in Overwatch I could also be tempted to open a few winter loot boxes in search of her Elf outfit. But in terms of actual gameplay, we’ve been drowning in Advent Calendar entries and end-of-year fun so haven’t had time for a good old pick through when it comes to holiday-related expansions/special game modes/new terrains etc etc!
So, go on – what’s floating your Happy Holiday boat as we coast towards the end of 2016?
