Call of Duty: WWII developers Sledgehammer Games may have just dropped a new multiplayer trailer and a ton of other info at E3 2017, but they still have plenty of juicy details to share. Yesterday Sledgehammer and studio co-founder Michael Condrey took part in a Call of Duty: WWII AMA on Reddit, during which they cleared up questions about everything from Supply Drops, to Zombies, to the possibility of campaign co-op. Scroll on down for a recap of some of the major topics covered.
According to Sledgehammer Games, more information about Call of Duty: WWII Zombies is “coming sooner than you may think.” Another reply to a Zombies-related question seemed to spill when precisely we’ll get to see more of the anticipated mode.
“We're incredibly excited to reveal Zombies. Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more info! We're heading to Comic Con in a couple weeks. Look for more news from the Call of Duty channels in the coming weeks about what exactly we'll be showing.”
Comic-Con International kicks off in San Diego on July 20, so, as Sledgehammer says, we may not have to wait long for the full Zombies reveal!
Sledgehammer also confirmed Supply Drops will be returning, but this time around weapon variants will be purely cosmetic. Could that change eventually? We shall see.
“Yes [there will be Supply Drops]. All weapon variants and gear variants in Call of Duty: WWII supply drops are cosmetic only, so there are no stat-based variants in play. We’re also offering players Collections and Collection Bounties, giving a direct path for our community to earn items through all modes of MP and Headquarters play.”
We know Zombies mode will have co-op, but what about the main campaign? You’re playing as part of a squad, so it would make a certain amount of sense, but, apparently, it’s not happening.
“Our Campaign takes players across all of Europe, takes on the greatest evil the world has ever known, features a diverse and multinational cast of characters that you encounter and play as, but will follow a single storyline as one player.”
In addition to the details above, Sledgehammer also briefly touched on a number of other topics, including whether Call of Duty: WWII is coming to Nintendo Switch (No), whether Clans will return (No), and the game’s competitive scene (Ranked Play is going to be a big focus, and we’ll hear more about what’s planned for the game’s esports scene by “late summer.”) You can peruse the entire AMA, right here.
Call of Duty: WWII storms on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 3. You can check out all WWG's latest Call of Duty coverage here.
