The first seasonal event for Call of Duty: WWII is about to begin.
The Winter Siege event kicks off on Friday, Dec. 8, and Sledgehammer Games is stuffing players’ stockings with tons of in-game presents.
From a very festive Headquarters to a new Quartermaster, this event is adding a ton of new features to WWII this holiday season.
The Winter Siege is set to bring five new guns to WWII, according to the trailer. Most longtime Call of Duty fans will notice that the Gewehr 43 is being added to WWII. The Gewehr is a powerful semi-automatic assault rifle that was previously included in Call of Duty: World at War. The trailer also showcased the Sten submachine gun and the GPMG light machine gun.
Winter Carentan, a festive version of the classic map Carentan, will be available for all players throughout this seasonal event.
Additionally, the fan-favorite game mode Gun Game will be featured in WWII during the Winter Siege event. The game mode pits players against one another with random weapons—get a kill with one gun and then your weapon will be changed.
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.”
There’s a lot to be excited about in the Call of Duty: WWII Winter Siege event, which is set to run from Dec. 8 to Jan. 2
