A new limited time Call Of Duty WWII community event went live on the 17th of April. The event is called, Blitzkrieg and will last until May 8th.
A huge part of the Call Of Duty WWII Blitzkrieg event is the new, limited time game mode, Ground War. This is a 9 vs 9 game mode that will see the teams face off in Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, War, and Domination. As you know these modes are usually 6 vs 6 so the extra three people on each team makes things way more hectic.
We have all spent a ton of time in HQ, but Sledgehammer Games have made it a map! Granted you can only play Prop Hunt and Gun Game, but it is pretty awesome that we can play these game modes in HQ.
Six new weapons are being added to the game as part of the Blitzkrieg event. These are Baseball Bat, sterling SMG, Type 5 rifle, M2 Carabine Fully Automatic Rifle, Type 38 Sniper Rifle and the ITRA Burst Rifle. Now, these are not just going to be sticking around for the event, these are permanently in the game. However, there are special “variations” that are only available while the event is taking place.
Of course, new orders and contracts are part of this event and there is also a community event as well. If the whole Call Of Duty player base manages to complete 75 million orders and contracts, we will get some extra goodies.
This new event is shaping up to be a lot of fun and I highly recommend that you get in on it. If you have not played COD WWII since the last event, now is the perfect time to jump back in. The Call Of Duty WWII Blitzkrieg event is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
