Call Of Duty: WW2 Update Adds Winter Version Of Classic Map, Gun Game Mode, And Lots More

A big new patch is now available for Call of Duty: World War II. Out now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and presumably coming to PC later), the patch’s chief new addition is the Winter Siege community event. As announced previously, this includes a winter version of the Carentan multiplayer map, a winterized makeover of Headquarters, and new Supply Drops that include cold-weather gear.

Additionally, the Gun Game mode is back in a 24/7 playlist that includes double XP. Check out GameSpot’s previous coverage and the trailer above to learn more about the Winter Siege event. The event runs until January 2, 2018.

Today’s Call of Duty: WWII patch also includes numerous fixes and improvements. The patch addresses map exploits on the Gibraltar, USS Texas, Pointe du Hock, Aachen, and Sainte Marie du Mont maps, while it also removes the ability to perform a “frog jump.” As this wonderful video from YouTube user tom shows off, this is when you sprint and dive repeatedly to move like a frog across the map.

The new patch also addresses team-killing; kill a teammate three teams in a Hardcore playlist and you’ll get booted. And in Headquarters mode, developer Sledgehammer has fixed the bug that let you get out of the playable space, while leaderboards are finally added to the Zombies mode. You can see a full rundown of the patch notes below, as posted by Sledgehammer on Reddit.

In other news, Sledgehammer is working on a patch for the PC version of Call of Duty: WWII that is slated to launch on Friday, December 8, at 10 AM PT. This update will focus on “some of the top-observed” feedback that Sledgehammer has received. The update will also add Ranked Play on PC; it’s already available on consoles.
