World of Warplanes Receives Winter Game Mode

New combat mode, map and custom warplane added to game

Wargaming today announced that the new winter game mode Snowball will be added to the action MMO World of Warplanes. The new Snowball combat scenario available starting December 18 through January 15 includes a unique battle arena, daily missions, new consumables and custom built aircraft for pilots to enjoy during this holiday season.

In Snowball mode, players will battle to eliminate the opposition in standard Team Deathmatch rules on the Lapland map created exclusively for this mode. The only aircraft available is the UFO Odin 42M vehicle that fires snowballs instead of rockets. This aircraft comes with 100% trained crew, hangar slot and is free to all registered players.

During the holiday event, special consumables—Fireworks, Sparklers and Smoke Flare—will be available for players that accomplish specific combat missions and earn achievements.

Players that complete the “Happy New Year!” mission will be awarded the Dornier Do 17Z-7 Kauz warplane.
