If you hadn't realised, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, followed the day after by Black Friday. Sledgehammer Games has decided to celebrate the former with an XP event in Call of Duty: WWII
. From 10am PST today, November 22nd, through until 10am PST on Monday, November 27th, players will be awarded double XP in all multiplayer modes. This should help immensely towards the following achievements:
In addition to this, December 1st is when Ranked Play Season 1 will launch on consoles. After that, December 8th is the start date for the game's first Seasonal Community Event: Winter Siege. Running until an unspecified date in early January, players will be able to battle it out on the Winter Carentan map. The map, which is now covered in snow, will be available for all players in all multiplayer modes although the studio recommends players especially try out Domination and Hardpoint modes. There will be weekly rewards for players who take part in the event and more details on this will be coming soon.
Finally, there will be an update next week that will address map exploit fixes, UI improvements, fixes to issues with Party and connectivity optimizations, amongst other things. Some of the fixes that the team has done are "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". There's no estimated release date for this patch, but we'll bring you the full patch notes when we receive them.Check out our The Best Xbox First Person Shooters Available in 2018 article for a compilation of other great games in this genre.
