Do you know what the best thing about the holiday season is? Even if you’re somewhat of a Scrooge, there’s reason to celebrate with all of the events found in mobile games. Many of them embrace the festive season, and The Witcher: Monster Slayer is no different. That’s right. Even beast-slayers like to stuff their faces with sweet treats, and drink more than they can handle.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer Midinváerne event is full of snowtastic fun, and yes, by that, we mean there are plenty of creatures that have a date with your trusty blade. Speaking of which, there are plenty of limited-time events for you to sink your teeth into. Complete them all, and you can get the incandescent heart, a mighty sword that’s perfect for exterminating Ogroids – such creatures include nekkers, rock trolls, ice trolls, and ice giants. The latter of which are stumbling out of their icy caverns come the second week of Midinváerne.

Of course, there’s more to Christmas than killing beasts, even those that walk the path need a break every now and then. Throughout the event, standard parcels are full of sweet treats and weaponised snowballs. We all know how effective those can be. So, be a pal and send some packages to your fellow witchers – tis the season to be jolly and all that jazz.

If you need some extra help facing the Ogroids, make sure you visit Thorstein to grab some exclusive holiday sets that have snowy benefits.
