Call of Duty: WWII‘s first seasonal event, Winter Siege, kicks off tomorrow, December 8th, and will run until January 2nd.
“December 1944 was marked by bitterly cold weather across Europe,” developer Sledgehammer Games writes. “It is also remembered for the last major German offensive of World War II – The Battle of the Bulge. Cold, hungry, and tired, the Allied forces bore the brunt of the attack and incurred their hardest fighting of any operation during the war.”
The first things players will notice upon logging in is that snow has begun to fall in the Headquarters and Captain Butcher, of the British Special Air Service forces has arrived at the Quartermaster with an inventory of cold weather gear for players.
The Winter Carentan multiplayer map will also be free for all players during the Winter Siege event and the classic Call of Duty game mode Gun Game will be unlocked for a limited time during the event’s second week.
Other bonuses available during the event include free supply drops, new winter emblems, 2XP playlists, and more. Take a look at the full schedule here.
Finally, Call of Duty: WWII will be getting a new update later today that will fix scorestreak training exploits, prestige exploits, ranked play UI not tracking wins and losses, and more.
Call of Duty: WWII is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
