Weather effect.

Dataminers have uncovered night and rain versions of a couple of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 maps.

While the existence of these alternative maps is now confirmed, we don't know how Treyarch intends to roll them out. Will they be given to all players for free as part of a community event, or will they form a part of the premium season pass (yes, Call of Duty still splits its userbase with premium maps)?
