NEW GAME MODE: SNOWBALL DEATHMATCH

This year’s Winter Wonderland event ushers in a new mini-game mode called ‘Snowball Deathmatch.’ This is an eight-player free-for-all deathmatch where everyone will play as Mei, with a modified snowball gun like the one from Mei’s Snowball Offensive.

Mei will also get a new ability in this game mode: ‘Catch’ allows you to try and catch an enemy snowball and, if successful, add it to your ammo count. The first player to get to 15 eliminations wins!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
