It’s time! Winter Siege has arrived in Call of Duty: WWII. The event is now live on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and will be live through January 2 at 10AM PT.

Winter Carentan:

For the duration of the Winter Siege event, players can play on Winter Carentan map. The original Carentan map was a Season Pass bonus only, but now all players can play a winter themed version of the map through January 2. Live from now through December –, the 2XP Winter Carentan playlist is available. The map has also been added to regular MP rotation — so you can find it in all playlists!

Quartermaster:

A new Quartermaster is now visiting the Headquarters during the event, Captain Butcher, a former British Special Forces soldier. Captain Butcher will be the new Quartermaster for the duration of the Winter Siege event, bringing with him all new Winter themed items. He brings new Winter Siege uniforms, cosmetic items (including helmets and emblems), and all new weapons. Activision says that all the weapon variants  of the new weapons in this update only have cosmetic differences. There are no stat based changes other than offering 2XP boosts, similar to how current weapon variants are.

Alongside this, there will be new, special orders from Major Howard which will offer players a new way to directly get one of the new weapon variants for free. The orders will be rotated every day to offer fans a way to unlock new variants of each of the new weapons coming for free. There are other rarity of the new weapons coming to Call of Duty: WWII, which can be unlocked through Collection Bounties, similar to how collections work in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, or the new Winter Supply Drop. Winter Supply Drops can be earned by playing games and leveling up; players will also receive 1 free Winter Supply Drop each week by logging in.

The new weapons coming are: GPMG LMG, the Sten SMG, the Gewehr 43 Assault Rifle, Trench Knife, and Ice Pick.

Activision and SHG also says there will be a special Winter Siege Supply Drops in the Quartermaster. During this event, Winter Siege Supply Drops will be replacing Rare Supply Drops. The Winter Siege Supply Drops can be earned through Quartermaster Challenges, end of match drops, or by completing orders. Players will also be able to use Call of Duty Points to get these Winter Siege Supply Drops, but Activision says there are many ways to earn the Drops for free in game.
