Winter Siege Event
"Winter Carentan Map"
SHG's first Seasonal Community Event “Winter Siege” starts 10am PST on Friday, December 8, and will run through December. There’s a ton packed into this special event, but one thing that SHG's particularly excited about is Winter Carentan. One of the most beloved maps in Call of Duty history is now set in the cold and snowy winter of 1944 and will be free to all players for a limited time during the event and will be added to all MP game modes. Be sure to check out Domination and Hardpoint, they’re two of our studio favorites for Winter Carentan. We can’t wait to play online with you. Also, we have weekly Winter Siege rewards for players that join us throughout the event, and we’ll have more to share in the coming weeks.

Further Update details

SHG's development team has been working incredibly hard since launch to continue improving the online experience, and making in-game tuning adjustments based on the enormous amount of match data they've collected. SHG worked to redeploy their dedicated servers globally on all platforms last week, with stability and speed of connection (ping) being their top priorities. SHG were able to address a number of important things noted in previous blog posts, and remain 100% committed to providing the best possible online game experience for the entire community.

The core game experience will always be SHG's #1 priority, but they also wanted to let you know about many feature updates and community events in the works.

Ranked Play – Ranked Play Season 1 launches on console on Friday, December 1. Battle your way through the tiers to earn rewards based on your Season 1 ranking for the ultimate in competitive bragging rights!

Headquarters – There goal from day one has been for everyone to experience HQ as a fully populated space where you can socialize, compete, show off, and earn rewards. They have been testing HQ in a variety of regions, and continue to drive towards that goal for everyone globally. Be sure to come back to HQ for your daily login bonus and new challenges, and just maybe some winter spirit.

Game Updates – Next week, they’ll have a game update that contains many important changes including map exploit fixes, UI improvements, fixes to issues with Party, connectivity optimizations, and more. Listening to fans and looking at global match data, they 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. They are currently play testing a reduced flinch over all weapon primaries, and will look to update once they verify the balance across all weapons remains. Stay tuned for more exciting news on changes coming, including new game modes launching during the Winter Siege event.
