From Sandtown, then to Spookytown, and now, on to Holiday Town. That's where Zynga's Respawnables is taking you with its latest update. Last month, the Team Fortress 2-like third-person shooter was updated with Halloween-themed content. This time, the game is going seasonal yet again with some new content inspired by the holiday season. Chief among the new stuff in Respawnables' new version is the new holiday-themed map, where you can experience matches with new props, lighting, music, and effects. There are also new themed gadgets called Elf Grenades and Holiday Candy. "Hand Grenades and Dynamite get all dolled up," notes Zynga, "let’s all celebrate with these jolly detonative gadgets that feature themed looks and particle effects." Let's indeed!

Note that this bundle is available via a $6.99 in-app purchase for a limited time only. What's not available for a limited time only because it's here to stay for good is the following set of new features:
