Blitzkrieg Event Announced for Call of Duty: WWII

Blitzkrieg, Call of Duty: WWII’s fourth community event, has gone live for all platforms.

Sledgehammer Games have launched a new community event to celebrate the release of The War Machine DLC. As with previous events, players will be able to earn new weapons and items, participate in limited time game modes, and battle on a limited time map. The event kicks off today, April 17, and runs through Tuesday, May 8.

Blitzkrieg officially brings back the Ground War multiplayer mode, which was quite popular in previous games. This 9v9 game mode features Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and War modes and doles out double XP during the event. As for Party Games, while no new modes have been added, the current crop of modes will be playable on a new map, HQ.

Most importantly, the update adds in six new weapons players can earn by completing Orders, Contracts, Collections, or by opening Supply Drops. They are the Type 5, ITRA Burst, and M2 Carbine rifles, the Type 38 Sniper, the Sterling SMG, and the Baseball Bat melee weapon.

Call of Duty: WWII is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to hop on and enjoy the event before its over.
