The festive seas on blasts into PlayStation Home this like a gale force wind, bringing games , quests,
rewards, and plenty of wonderful, wintry fun for all. Of course, no Christmas would be complete
without a special event, which is why we have called in favours with our friends Snowman, Snow Bear,
and some very special guests for what is sure to be the celebration of the year.
Your journey begins in the brand new snow-covered Pier Park, where a collection of quests will
unravel in the coming weeks and which will reward players with exclusive items and collectibles only
available from this limited-time event. Start by going to the Activity Board to start your first quest, then catch a boat from Pier Park to transport to this chilly locale where Snowman and Snow Bear will
provide clues that will lead you throughout a vast winter wonderland filled with tons of surprises.
Complete all the quests to unlock a variety of special rewards that will leave your inventory bulging
with awesome Yuletide mementos!
