The festive season is almost upon us and tradition continues as developers do their best to entice players with holiday events and festive cheer. Ubisoft and Blue Byte are the latest to join the Christmas events as they announce a special event for the critically acclaimed free MMORTS game, The Settlers Online.
Beginning tomorrow, December 12th, players will discover that their islands have been covered with snow and presents have fallen from Santa’s sled. Players will be able to gather presents as a special resource for the duration of the event, using a number of in-game activities. These items can then be exchanged for special Christmas awards exclusive to the event.
Santa himself will also be making an appearance as he guides players through 8 festive sub-quests. Other events include random spawning candy and daily quests, each offering festive rewards for all players that participate.
