While COD Points was just implemented in Call of Duty: WWII today, it didn’t come with a game update as some people was expecting it to. Fortunately, Sledgehammer Games has posted a recent game status update on its official site announcing when we can expect the new patch and more.
First off, to mark Thanksgiving, there’s going to be a COD: WWII double XP event happening that starts this Wednesday at 10 a.m. PST and will run util November 27, Monday.
There’s going to be community events and more happening which you can read about below.
Winter Carentan Map – Our first Seasonal Community Event for Call of Duty: WWII titled “Winter Siege” starts 10am PST on Friday, December 8, and will run until early January. There’s a ton packed into this special event, but one thing that we’re particularly excited about is Winter Carentan. One of the most beloved maps in Call of Duty history is now set in the cold and snowy winter of 1944 and will be free to all players for a limited time during the event and will be added to all MP game modes. Be sure to check out Domination and Hardpoint, they’re two of our studio favorites for Winter Carentan. We can’t wait to play online with you. Also, we have weekly Winter Siege rewards for players that join us throughout the event, and we’ll have more to share in the coming weeks.
Ranked Play – Ranked Play Season 1 launches on console on Friday, December 1. Battle your way through the tiers to earn rewards based on your Season 1 ranking for the ultimate in competitive bragging rights!
Headquarters – Our goal from day one has been for everyone to experience HQ as a fully populated space where you can socialize, compete, show off, and earn rewards. We have been testing HQ in a variety of regions, and continue to drive towards that goal for everyone globally. Be sure to come back to HQ for your daily login bonus and new challenges, and just maybe some winter spirit.
Game Updates – Next week, we’ll have a game update that contains many important changes including map exploit fixes, UI improvements, fixes to issues with Party, connectivity optimizations, and more. Listening to fans and looking at global match data, we adjusted the BAR (increased recoil), reduced the flinch-reduction in the Primed Basic Training, fixed the “snaking” exploit while crouching and proning repeatedly, and fixed an important bug with the smoke grenade. We are currently play testing a reduced flinch over all weapon primaries, and will look to update once we verify the balance across all weapons remains. Stay tuned for more exciting news on changes coming, including new game modes launching during our Winter Siege event.
Once the patch drops, we’ll be sure to let everyone know. In other COD: WWII news, don’t expect the Domination score per kill to change anytime soon, and here’s why. Also, if you’re complaining about bad spawns in the game, then you might want to read this since Sledgehammer says bad spawn rates are at a “franchise-setting low.”
