Recovering from E3 gaming overload? It’s time to catch up on anything you might have missed, like this Making Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer Livestream video.
It features Michael Condrey from Sledgehammer Games talking about various aspects of the new Call of Duty title. Aside from frequent references to ‘boots on the ground’, Condrey covers various aspects of the World War 2 shooter. That includes the decision to include Nazi symbols and iconography in the single player campaign, where it makes sense in an historical context. But not in zombies, and multiplayer, due to the legal aspects around it, and a desire to show some respect.
It’s confirmed that there will be score streaks, and the tank exclusive to the new War mode. Plus the Headquarters and Divisions elements of Call of Duty WW2 explained by Greg Reisdorf, multiplayer designer at Sledgehammer Games.
The new Headquarters social space includes a variety of features, including 1 vs 1 challenges. And partying up, or running around whilst waiting for a match to start. It’s based around the beachhead staging area following the Allied landings on D-Day. Each Headquarters will be open to 48 players at once, and is pretty much the multiplayer main menu.
Divisions now replaces Create-A-Class from previous games. Your choice of Division will set your look, play style and gameplay. Within that, you can manipulate classes. But Perks are gone.
You still have a Primary, Secondary and a selection of Equipment. And it also looks at the various locations such as Pointe Du Hoc.
