Sledgehammer Games will be celebrating the holidays by hosting the first Call of Duty: WWII community event.
Sledgehammer also released a bare-bones list of patch notes for an update that is set to be released tomorrow morning, with the "full list of game updates on console coming tomorrow".
The Winter Siege Event begins at 10AM PT on Friday, December 8th and will be active until January 2nd at 10AM PT.
The Winter Siege features a new, frost-covered Winter Carentan multiplayer map, the return of the Gun Game party mode, Double XP Playlists, a winterized Headquarters with new visiting Quartermaster as well as new Winter Siege Supply Drops delivering new, limited edition winter gear and content to players.
A new map called Winter Carentan will be available for the duration of the event, but that's just the start of a huge schedule that includes free loot, playlists, orders, and other features. This beloved mode makes its Call of Duty: WWII debut during the second week of the event as part of a non-stop schedule of special 2XP playlists, delivering a flawless way for players to take a variety of weapons out for a spin and keep their opponents guessing.
Headquarters will be decked out in seasonally appropriate attire, and will welcome Captain Butcher who will be the new Quartermaster for the event. It will be one of the titles in the Double XP playlist during Winter Siege.
Bring new limited-time winter weapons into the heat of battle. Players will earn one Winter Siege Supply Drop each week for logging in during the event. The character will give players the opportunity to earn Winter Siege Division Uniforms, Cosmetic Items, and different weapon variants.
Prepare for a Frosty Fight in Call of Duty: WWII's first community event - Winter Siege.
