Call of Duty: WWII begins new Blitzkrieg community event


It means 'Lightning War'. Yeah, I went to school occasionally

Activision have unveiled a new community event for their hugely-successful shooter Call of Duty: WWII. The Blitzkrieg event, which is live from now until May 8, brings new weapons, modes and other content to the game's multiplayer.

First up is "new" map HQ, which all of you will recognise at it is, obviously, WWII's multiplayer hub now transformed into an actual battleground! The HQ now has its own playlist, but is limited to Free-For-All, Prop Hunt and Gun Game modes.

Six new weapons have been added to the game's jam-packed arsenal. These include the ITRA burst rifle, the classic M2 Carbine rifle, the Sterling sub-machine gun and the bolt action Type 38 sniper rifle. For Inglorious Bastards fans, a common or garden Baseball Bat has been added for those close encounters. Grisly.

Finally, new game mode Ground War, which pits teams of nine players against each other, has gone live. Given the higher playe rcount featured in these battles, Ground War is limited to the larger maps, to prevent things from getting a little too cosy.

You can check out the new trailer below to see the new content in action. Call of Duty: WWII is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
