It's Christmas time soon, which means that every single game out there is planning some kind of festive event, or giving its NPCs reindeer antlers, or - in the case of World of Warplanes - letting you fly
No, I'm not really sure about how festive that is either. Though to be fair, developerhas also added a new “Snowball” game mode on a dedicated Lapland map, and 26 dedicated missions for the holiday season.
"Snowball" mode will take place on the dedicated Lapland map that has been specifically designed for the event, "featuring fireworks-shooting AA-guns, a celebratory holiday skybox and multiple other holiday decorations and animations." You can choose to pilot those Xmas UFOs in this mode, should you wish.
As well as one-time seasonal missions, there will be various daily challenges over the Christmas period, which you can complete to earn eight new achievements. Complete the “Happy New Year!” mission and you'll be awarded the limited edition Dornier Do 17Z-7 Kauz warplane.
Lots to keep you busy over the holidays, when you're not stuffing your face with turkey or arguing with relatives. In addition to the new mission content, Version 1.6.3 also adds new holiday decals and consumables, as well as a new U.S. aircraft, plenty of bug fixes, balance adjustments and matchmaker optimisations.
