|Groot Holiday character from HeroClix Online|
WizKids Games announced a special holiday celebration for players and fans of "HeroClix Online," entitled Season’s Grootings. As part of the celebration, developers have delivered a free Marvel Groot figure to all active accounts and are giving away several in-game objects including a festive Season’s Grootings object, Holiday Tree, Ole Claus and Snowman. The celebration runs through January 2, 2013.
As part of the festivities, one Marvel Groot figure has been delivered to all active "HeroClix Online" accounts. To claim their special gift, players will need to log in to their account before the end of the Season’s Grootings celebration.
Additionally, developers have designed four in-game holiday objects that can be used as obstacles for, or to attack, opponents in matches and tournaments. Objects include a Holiday Tree, Ole Clause and Snowman. New this year is the Season’s Grootings object, a festive Groot-like object that randomly gifts players one of 44 standard powers during play.
Players have multiple ways to pick up the holiday objects, including in game or via the "HeroClix Online" forums or Facebook page. The special Season’s Grootings object will be awarded to all Marvel tournament participants during the celebration.
“We wish the 'HeroClix' and 'HeroClix Online' communities a happy holiday season,” said Jerome Gonyeau, Marketing Manager at WizKids Games.
