'Call of Duty: WWII' will be holding its first seasonal community event over the festive period.

Call of Duty: WWII Winter Siege

Call of Duty: WWII Winter Siege

The first-person shooter video game will mark the festive season between Friday December 8, 2017 and Tuesday January 2, 2018, with a huge number of new features including a frost-covered Winter Carentan multiplayer map.

Fans can also benefit from the return of the Gun Game party mode, Double XP Playlists, a winterised Headquarters with new visiting Quartermaster as well as new Winter Siege Supply Drops delivering limited edition winter gear and content to players

Aaron Halon, Senior Product Developer, Multiplayer at Sledgehammer Games, said: "The Winter Siege is all about celebrating with the Call of Duty community. There's a ton of content for everyone to play during this time from a reimagined Winter Carentan multiplayer map that's now packed with snow to Gun Game to Supply Drops full of winter-themed gear and content all available throughout the Winter Siege."

These activities and content will be made free to all 'Call of Duty: WWII' players for a limited time.

The limited-time return of the Gun Game gives players a chance to take the different weapons out for a spin and learn how best to keep their opponents guessing.

At the Headquarters, Captain Butcher visits wearing the new Winter Siege Division uniforms and has new weapon variants. Meanwhile, Winter Siege Supply Drops can be earned for free just by playing the game during the event. For every week you log in, players will also receive a free Winter Siege Supply Drop.
