It's a good time to be a Call of Duty player right now. Activision's latest event for both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone is now live. The Festive Fervor holiday event will run through Christmas, which will include a 2XP weekend among others.
Here's everything you need to know about the Festive Fervor event for Call of Duty.
When will the Festive Fervor event end?
After kicking off on December 16 (or December 17, depending on where you live), the Festive Fervor event will run through most of the holiday season.
Here's a quick breakdown of which event is ending and when:
- The 2XP event runs through the 21st
- The 12 Festive Days of Deals will run through the 25th
- Holiday Sales will run through January 5th
What does the Festive Fervor event bring?
- You can have Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Bundles for a discount throughout the holidays.
- Four festive Bundles will be up for grabs on the Store that players can use in both Warzone and Vanguard.
- Krampus is coming for those who don't like to play the objective in Vanguard.
- Find the Elf Team Six members scattered all over Warzone and Vanguard to earn rewards.
- Purchasing Vanguard from now until December 31 will net you 10 Tier Skips and a 10% Seasonal XP Boost, among others. Those who already own Vanguard should have already gotten these freebies since December 16.
- You can get a Weapon Blueprint for completing all the Festive Fervor challenges in Warzone or Vanguard.
From Drop Zone to Armageddon Mode
Vanguard is also getting Armageddon mode for the duration of the event. The former Drop Zone will put a twist on the classic TDM gameplay. Instead of the standard TDM rules, Armageddon mode will put set control points across the maps where teams will fight over as Care Packages fall constantly. Once the teams have combined for a certain number of Killstreaks, the zone rotates to a different point, which makes for a very chaotic game mode.
What’s next for Call of Duty?
Fans will want to keep a close eye on any developments within Activision Blizzard for the next few months.
Just a short while ago, an Activision Blizzard executive went ahead and asked employees not to unionize as the company faces serious allegations of abuse and harassment. Meanwhile, there are reports that Activision is reconsidering its annual release cycle for Call of Duty games. Speaking of, a leaker just claims that the original Ghost voice actor will return for next year's Call of Duty, which, according to another insider, will be reportedly called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.
Most likely, we'll find out more details about Call of Duty 2022, along with the future of Activision-Blizzard, in the next few months.
