Today, Activision releases the first community event for Call of Duty: WWII. The event, called Winter Siege, will be available across the most popular platforms, namely PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Just in time for the holiday season, players will get to enjoy loads of exclusive features, as well as new content.
Winter Siege is a special season-themed event
Winter Siege constitutes a reimagining of the popular multiplayer map Carentan. The map is one of the favorites of the fans, and will be available in a special winter theme, with snow and cold weather. Such a version was available even before, but only for the owners of Season Pass.
During the second week of Winter Siege, the Gun Game will be back, but only for a limited period. Special game sessions offering double XP will run non-stop, while the classic mode will leave players in a heated competition to make first kills with each of the weapons.
The event comes with rare weapons and wintery redesigns
To fit the winter atmosphere, the headquarters will receive a redesign. The entire establishment will look wintery, and everything will be covered in snow. Moreover, a Quartermaster will come to visit and offer players special uniforms, weapons, and other items.
Major Howard will deliver some Special Orders every day, which will allow players to get each variant of a new weapon for free. If you’re looking for other rare weapons, they will also be available in the special Supply Drops. To get these, you only have to be part of the Winter Siege event. One such supply drop will be available once you log in, and others will be available for purchase in exchange for Call of Duty Points.
Together with the Winter Siege event, Activision will also provide a series of bug fixes for Call of Duty: WWII. If you are willing to join one, such events are open to everyone until January 2nd, 2018.
