Sticking to its regular cycle, Activision debuted the multiplayer trailer for previously announced Call Of Duty WWII. While not reveling too much, they showed us a little bit of what we can expect. Below is a list of everything we know about CoD WWII as of now. Lets get to it.
As the title says, This newest entry in the Call Of Duty Franchise takes place during world war 2. Multiplayer is said to feature some different fronts outside the locations featured in the campaign. Battlefield 1 has found success in this setting and I expect Call Of Duty will too.
“Fast-paced, grounded combat returns in Call of Duty®: WWII Multiplayer. Armed with an arsenal of iconic Allied and Axis weaponry, players are immersed in brutal gameplay as they fight to liberate a continent in the throes of tyranny.
The new Divisions feature redefines how players invest in their MP career, giving them the chance to choose from five divisions, each with their own specialized training and weapons skills. In War Mode, an entirely fresh Call of Duty experience, players must works as a team and fight for control through multiple strategic objectives.”
Of course multiplayer is returning, CoD would die without it. As usual some changes have been made to this years entry. Create a class has been replaced with “Divisions” with each with specific combat training and functions. Developer Sledgehammer Games says The Divisions system “fundamentally redefines how players invest in their Multiplayer soldier career.”
5 divisions have been announced so far:
- Airborne: First to the fight, where you move fast and stay quiet
- Mountain: Focusing on precise and deadly sharpshooting
- Infantry: Be the tip of the spear
- Armored: Bringing the heaviest firepower
- Expeditionary Force: Packing heat with incendiary shells
Score streaks have been confirmed to be returning but no specific streaks were announced.
A new game mode called “War Mode” is included as part of WWII’s multiplayer, not many details have been given but Sledgehammer says War Mode is “a narrative based mode where Allied and Axis soldiers clash in team-driven assault & defend gameplay in the fight for strategic objectives.”
Zombies are returning to Call Of Duty WWII, Nazi zombies to appear in WWII, but is said to be a different experience than the zombies modes in the other CoD Titles. WWII Zombies will feature a “back story that’s based on real events” and have a experience similar to Dead Space. Thats not surprising, Before founding Sledgehammer Games, Condrey and Schofield were the heads of Visceral Games, The developer of Dead Space.
