With the winter event for Champions Online proceeding like chestnuts
roasting on an open fire, your friends at Ten Ton Hammer are pleased to
give you a holiday gift of a gallery of screenshots showcasing the
egg-noggy goodness of yuletide in CO. Sadly, a Scrooge has shown up to
ruin the holiday season, the evil Black Harlequin, who creates deadly
toys to spread terror and mayhem.
The first two rows of screenshots show the presents that
find traveling throughout the various zones and, of course, the big man
himself! If you open up a present (and why wouldn’t you?),
can either get a gift, such as festive socks or part of an action
figure, or you can be attacked by the maniacal toys of the Black
Harlequin. Feel free to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him that
want the newest crime-fighting gadgets this year!
Rows three and four show a fight against the foul Black Harlequin in
addition to a fight against a couple of evil toy soldiers after opening
a present. After the Black Harlequin flees, his giant teddy bear of
doom, Clarence, appears and you have to face his wrath. Clarence and
the Black Harlequin spawn randomly next to a charity worker.
Row five shows some of the action figures you can get by taking action
figure pieces that you collect to the Toymaker located in the
Renaissance Center in Millennium City. Each figure needs 3 pieces
(head, torso, and legs) to be assembled. In a pinch, you can buy them
off the auction house or trade with other players.
The last row shows some of the Black Harlequin’s minions that
attack you after you open a present. In addition, they show up when he
makes an appearance. You can also transform yourself into one of these
cuddly killers by getting an item that drops from the presents.
You’ll find yourself a lot shorter though!
