Here’s what you can expect from Modern Warfare 2 throughout the Christmas period.

Will Modern Warfare 2 have a Christmas event?

Modern Warfare 2 will not have a full-fledged Christmas event for players to experience. While a full-blown event is not expected to hit Modern Warfare 2, there are some festive elements that players can look forward to.

For starters, a Christmas version of the new Season 1 Reloaded map Shipment will offer plenty of Holiday spirit.

The standard reimagined version of Shipment will be available at the start of Season 1 Reloaded on December 14. The Holiday overhaul of Shipment will then arrive on December 21.

Modern Warfare 2’s Shipment is now set on a cargo ship and the Holiday version will see its main deck covered in jolly decorations and lights. Holiday Shipment will be playable from December 21 to January 4.

Furthermore, the devs confirmed that players won’t have to deal with Vanguard’s controversial Krampus: “Those on the naughty list won’t have to fret over any mythological creatures during this holiday season.”
