Some new details for Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII came out today, via a new Q & A piece that was posted over on the PlayStation Blog. In it, Michael Condrey, co-founder for Sledgehammer Games (the sequel’s developer), divulged some new information that will make multiplayer fans happy – especially with the reveal of a new mode!
When asked about whether players can expect particular favorites like S & R or Blitz, Condrey responded, “ In developing the combat for Call of Duty: WWII, the key word was ‘grounded.’ We looked at it like a return to the roots of the series, a chance to revisit what made Call of Duty a cultural milestone – an old-school battle that takes advantage of new gaming technology.
“I’m super excited to talk more about multiplayer, but it’s not time just yet. What I can say is, expect authentic WWII weapons, iconic battle locations, and a ton of new ways to compete. We’re even working on a new way for players to interact in a social space that is brand new to Call of Duty.
“Also, one of the most exciting new modes in our multiplayer experience is War Mode, which we can talk about a bit. The goal with War Mode was to create new ways to immerse players in iconic, PVP WW2 battles. War Mode is just that, a narrative based mode where Allied and Axis soldiers clash in team-driven assault & defend gameplay in the fight for strategic objectives. We partnered with Raven Software for development on War Mode. It’s a fun new mode, and an important component of bringing our overall vision to life. We couldn’t be more excited to be revealing several of our new multiplayer features for the first time at E3.”
It sounds like the Electronic Entertainment Expo will be the place to be when it comes to checking out Call of Duty: WWII in action. We’ll have more details for you soon, including possible information on when the PlayStation 4 beta will kick off, so you can try out multiplayer for yourself.
