Call of Duty: WWII gets a seasonal event, the Winter Siege
Oh the shelling outside is frightful, and the fire is also frightful
If there was a game deserving of a Christmas themed event it would be Call of Duty: WWII.
I jest of course, nothing about War screams Christmas (unless we’re talking about a particular Sainsbury’s Christmas advert, but that was World War I). What the event boils down to is a snow covered Winter Carentan map, the vanilla version of which is apparently a fan-favourite (who knew?).
The event also marks the return of what they call the ‘Gun Game’, the first time it’s appeared in this version of Call of Duty. In this players will get non-stop access to double XP playlists, a good way to level up your weapon proficiency. Also, new seasonal cosmetic items will be available in the new winterised Headquarters hub thanks to Captain Butcher who is visiting for the holiday season. New weapon variants will also be available to buy, or for free if you complete special orders distributed from Captain Howard.
The mode goes live from tomorrow, across all formats. Calvin reviewed CoD: WWII and gave it a 9/10, any of you guys picking it up for Christmas?
