Whatever tactic you use, be prepared to engage in heated close-quarters battles that are sure to get the snow sizzling at your feet."
"The holiday spirit has arrived at your favourite luxurious getaway in Holiday Raid. The mansion and grounds are covered in snow and decked with holiday cheer.
But try not to get lulled into the extravagant setting, as the competition is sure to be fierce. Is that a present under the tree or the barrel of an enemy’s weapon? Lob out an explosive gift, just to be sure."
