Christmas Event: Winterfest

Until now, during this acclaimed event, all players received multiple gifts, so we can expect no less this year. Also, rumor has it that this new patch will see the return of the planes, so we can once again eliminate our enemies from the air! Of course, we'll also have Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations to keep our characters excited about the holidays.

Although we have already seen many of the Christmas skins, we are sure that the new ones will not leave us indifferent. We also know that we are going to meet a new character in the shape of a snowman called Snowmando.

Another novelty that has surprised us more has been the possibility of singing a carol with the rest of the players. Due to a new cooperative gesture, we will be able to recite it with up to 4 friends.
