Fontaine has finally overcome a fairly turbulent time and it's time to get back to the important things in Genshin Impact. Version 4.3, Roses and Muskets, will kick off December 20th and bring Travelers to one of the nation's most important events; the Fontinalia Festival.
This year will include a unique film festival, honouring the legendary Lochknights who introduced the previous Hydro Archon, Egeria, the Fontaine. A team consisting of the Traveler, renowned Chioriya Boutique fashion designer Chiori, the Kasmisato siblings, and, of course, Paimon will come together to work on a special film.
It's time to swap your Pokeballs for snowballs as a new festive mode has launched in The Pokemon Company International’s 5v5 MOBA Pokemon Unite. The presents don't stop there, however, as a brand new challenger is entering the arena, all the way from Paldea.
Until December 30th, Shivre City will be swamped with snow, which can only mean one thing; gratuitous snowy violence! Snowball Batlle will see any KO’d Pokemon instead turn into snowmen, which is quite an amusing thought. Finding a defeat the dastardly Delibird will nab you a present containing a random one-time battle item, helping you keep your foes on their frozen toes.
World of Tanks Blitz is updating that old story of Santa sneaking down your chimney and silently leaving presents like a jolly old ninja into something a little more modern. Vinnie Jones has traded the sleigh for a tank and is ringing in the festive times with a few not-so-quiet explosions as he heads the Holiday Ops 2024. Who has a fireplace anymore anyway?
Before we head into the Ops themselves, let’s get suitably tooled up a bit first. Until December 10th - so act fast - you can enter yourself into the Cobra Draw. There’s a chance to win Garage gear, containers, a legendary camo for the Cobra, and, of course, somewhere to put this camouflage; the Cobra itself. You can roll into the new year on this metal beast capable of devastating foes with a 400 HP single shot, giving you more than enough damage to tackle the main event.
Every day, we pick out a curated list of the best mobile discounts on the App Store and post them here. This list won't be comprehensive, but it every game on it is recommended. Feel free to check out the coverage we did on them in the links below to further vet these discounted games before you decide to buy:

It has been nearly a year since SuperPlanet's AFK Airship Knights floated into our lives, and the celebrations have started thanks to a collaboration with The Greatest Estate Developer. Recruit new characters and grab a host of special rewards to commemorate one year of flying high.
The Greatest Estate Developer is a Korean web novel that follows the story of Suho Kim, a civil engineering student with a not-so-happy life. One night, after reading the Knight of Blood and Iron novel, he fell asleep and awoke to find himself as a side character in the book. As Lloyd Frontera, he uses his knowledge of the plot to avert disaster in his new world.
Dinosaur Polo Club, one of the best developer names out there, have recently announced the final update of 2023 for Mini Motorways. Instead of embracing Christmas, this event is instead inspired by one of the most beautiful natural phenomena, the aurora borealis.
If you aren't one of the four million people who have played Mini Motorways before, you are presented with a simple small town, that in the blink of an eye expands to a bustling metropolis. It is your job to build the roads to connect the correct colour houses to the buildings they need to go to and keep traffic flowing as smoothly as you can.
Over the years, there have been a lot of different marketing gimmicks tried by companies and ambassadors, some of them land like Snoop Dog and his recent smoking misdirection, and some are just rather frustrating, let’s no lie. Tencent, however, has firmly placed itself in the former thanks to its cryptic clues for PUBG Mobile Version 3.0.
PUBG Mobile is no stranger to massive version updates of new features and modes, occasionally styled around massive names such as Dragon Ball or BLACKPINK. You’d think they would continue in this vein, however, they have gone the entire other direction by giving us a few doodles and telling us to figure it out, which is truly marvellous.
When it comes to mobile battle royales, it wouldn’t be disrespectful to say the first ones to pop to mind would be PUBG Mobile, but there is one that perhaps doesn’t get the worldwide recognition it should and that's Garena’s Free Fire. Now, however, they will be on the map more with car buffs, thanks to their latest collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini.
Despite not being the first name on our lips, Free Fire has a rather enviable resume under its belt. According to data.ai, formally known as App Annie, it was the most downloaded mobile game for three years straight since 2021. Its popularity extended to the esports world, with its annual World Series smashing the most-watched esports event record in 2021.
World of Tanks Blitz adds celebrity ambassador Vinnie Jones along with special Holiday Ops in-game goodies
Wargaming is celebrating the season within World of Tanks Blitz with a new celebrity ambassador joining this year's Holiday Ops. In particular, British footballer and movie star Vinnie Jones will be brightening up the game with plenty of themed in-game goodies from December 1st to December 20th.
The World of Tanks Blitz Holiday Ops 2024 event is bringing a hilarious new narrative for players to enjoy as Vinnie Jones steps into the shoes of a war commander on the battlefield. Of course, his previous role as the punisher for Santa's Naughty List still runs through his veins, which you can see in all its glory in the game's cinematic Holiday Ops trailer.
Nexon and Nitro Studios have kicked off the fifth Season of their platform racer, KartRider Dift, in quite a big way. As well as a bevvy of new tracks to take your skills to, and the new racing pass with its rewards, KartRider has also teamed up with one of the biggest pop groups in the world; BlackPink.
Starting out strong, Season Five has introduced eight new tracks, a bumper number to be sure. The Graveyard and Factory themes have both received two new maps to dart around in. The Altar of Secrets and Skeletal Citadel are ready to give you a scare, whereas industrial buffs will enjoy the Trapworks as well as Bang and Clang. I’ll let you guess which set goes with which theme.
Netmarble has announced the partnership between two fighting giants who really need no introductions; The King of Fighters Allstar will play host to Capcom's iconic series Street Fighter, specifically the latest entry Street Fighter 6, with three legendary fighters set to kick off the collab.
Proving the legend true that he does go with everything, Guile is a Yellow Defense type fighter, who has the rather envious leader skill of increasing the attack of all fighters, with the buff raising when defeating enemies. His Special Skill will deal Bleed damage equal to the number of attacks as you hit the Blast skill. Overall, a strong opener.
It has been two years since Postknights 2 graced mobile, which should be an event all about the prizes and events, but unfortunately, it comes with the worst event name I have seen and I'm mad about it. To celebrate the anniversary, and thank all their players for a 4.9 rating across storefronts, Kurechii has announced “The Aniver2ary” event. And yes, it does not work at all.
To grab your first salvo of rewards, simply log in for seven days before December 11th to make sure you get as much as you can from the Login Rewards, including the exclusive 2023 Gratitude Cap. A decent gift for simply showing up really, and there is still time so act fast.
It has been a week of tremendous tension and spectacular shots, but the 2023 PUBG Mobile Global Championship has whittled down the 24 hopefuls to just five. These will take a step towards the grand final and a chance to win a piece of the $3 million prize pool.
In perhaps the most exciting week of the competition, obviously barring the granddaddy of them all, it was the final throw of the dice for these 24 teams as they went head to head-to-head and so on like a bickering gun-wielding Hydra in the Survival Stage and Last Change Stages. After failing to qualify during their Group Stages, they had it all to prove.
Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space has launched its latest version 3.3.100 with a new episode and two new characters. The Cliffs of Wyrmrest (Wryz Saga I) sees Aldo and his group heading to the island of a dragon-hunting group, as well as the introduction of a new Awakening mechanic.
The story picks up in Ratle, after the events of chapter 13. Having slayed the dragons attacking the Village of Fire, Aldo is invited to join the elite dragon-hunting organization of Arcadia, an uncharted island full of new allies. Amongst these is Wryz, a young woman determined to complete her goal, even if it costs her life.
Onmyoji will be releasing its latest event on November 22nd, and it is perhaps the most nihilistic in its history. Divinity’s Doom comes with the tagline of if all creation ends in annihilation, then let’s destroy it already, and they are making good on this premise with the release of an incredibly powerful new character; Izanami.
If you have been looking for a new unit to beef up your offence, then your search is well and truly over. Starting off incredibly strong, Izanamis’ normal skill can deal up to 125% of her ATK to a single target, with a chance to apply Decay. This lowers defence by 100, and at the end of the turn deals an extra 120% indirect damage. That is just the standard attack remember.
