Valorant’s Snowball Fight is the sort of chilled-out mode it needed

Some days, you just wanna play a bit of Valorant, you know? But occasionally you're a bit too tired or not in the mood for the tense competitive matches Riot Games' tactical FPS typically has on offer. Which is why the new winter mode is great. Yesterday, Valorant introduced the limited-time Snowball Fight, and I think running around pelting people with snow is exactly the…

Valorant’s first holiday event is a snowball fight with knives

On December 15th, Valorant will see its first ever Christmas update, and what better way to celebrate than to pelt your pals with snowballs in a new limited-time game mode. Of course, no snowball fight is complete without a grenade launcher and knives, right? In Valorant's Snowball Fight, you'll be loading up some snowy doom into a rigged molotov launcher, and you'll have your trusty…

Rockstar let it snow, let it snow, let it snow in GTA Online and Red Dead Online

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Online modes of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar started the Christmas events yesterday, dressing the sandbox worlds in Christmas finery, placing presents under our trees, and firing up the snow machines. I have already won a GTA Online snowball fight to the death while dressed in my Christmas warms so…

With snow a-falling, sleigh bells a-jingling, and cookies a-baking, 'tis the season to remember the man who sacrificed his life so humanity might be saved: Saint-14. The legendary Titan of Destiny 2 died after centuries trapped fighting robots who ultimately built a machine to murder specifically him and only him, but today we can save him. As the Season Of Dawn rolls on, from today…

Dota’s Christmas event turns Rubick into the Grinch

It's Christmas Frostivus in Dota-land, but Rubick doesn't care. "Swept up in the zeal of unraveling and reshaping arcane energies" - we've all been there - "Grand Magus Rubick marches a mob into Frosthaven, intent on uprooting the original Frostivus tree to explore the mysterious font of power beneath it." Which means, of course, that five heroes have to defend a Christmas tree in co-op…

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s Christmas is go go go

We all know the coming of Christmas means the goose is getting fat, but what about the chicken? She's warm and cosy, as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has kicked off its festivities by giving chickens wee Christmas jumpers. These jumpers are #2 on the definitive ranking of CS:GO chicken costumes so that's certainly something to celebrate. Other Christmas festivities include piles of snowballs in spawn points…

Frostpunk goes even more Dickensian in Christmas update

"And since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" is a tad more grim in a post-apocalyptic world where everything we knew is frozen over and everyone we know may well freeze to death, but Frostpunk has still made space for Christmas. A little festivity can bring hope, after all, and mercy knows we'll need it. That's the…

Rising Storm 2 celebrates Christmas with toy soldier battles

Wee plastic soldiers will wage war across a messy house this Christmas - and in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. The 'realistic' multiplayer first-person shooter today launches its festive event with a pleasingly self-descriptive name, Toy Soldier Green Army Men Christmas Special. There are green toy army men, and it's Christmas, and it's special. The smooth soldiers will scamper along Hot Wheels tracks, have firefights in…
