Activision have confirmed what will be included in the Call of Duty WWII beta, which kicks off this weekend on PS4, with Xbox One owners able to join the fight the following weekend.
“We love the active dialog we have with the Call of Duty community, and value the exchange of ideas and constructive feedback we have with fans. Your feedback will help us finalize features, optimize gameplay balance, and refine the remaining development roadmap to launch. So please explore, rank up, and have fun. Share as much feedback as you can – everything helps. The development team will be playing non-stop, and we’ll be monitoring performance and collecting valuable data around the clock.”
There will be three maps in the beta – Ardennes Forest, Gibraltar and Pointe du Hoc – which you can preview in the below trailers.
Players who have managed to get a code by pre-ordering or winning a code will be able to play through Call of Duty’s new War mode where the Allies clash with the Axis forces to fight over attack and defend objectives – when it’s written like that it sounds and awfully lot like Battlefield doesn’t it?
Other modes included in the beta include Team Deathmatch, Domination and Hardpoint.
Only time will tell whether WWII is a return to the form of Modern Warfare or play more like something that EA and DICE would publish, while this weekend is a beta, many will judge the final product on what they experience – bugs and all.
