Activision released a new trailer for Sledgehammer Games’ upcoming Call of Duty: WW2, covering the content that will be present in the private beta that will be available for those who pre-ordered the game on the PS4.
The trailer is a minute and a half long, features a look at the new War Mode, which seems to be similar to Battlefield or Halo 5’s Warzone, along with the new group-based Divisions. You can check it out below.
In addition to the trailer, Sledgehammer Games also revealed all of the content that will be available during the private beta, including the maps, modes and customization features in a post on the Activision Community site.
The private beta will not feature full progression, any of the e-sport features, microtransactions, DLC, Headquarters, Supply Drops or loot crates. It will feature the following:
- Maps – At least three Multiplayer maps, including: Pointe Du Hoc, Ardennes, and Gibraltar.
- War Mode – Operation Breakout
- Modes – Fan-favorite modes, including Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint.
- Divisions – Enlist in the Infantry, Expeditionary, Airborne, Armored, or Mountain Division. You are not limited to any one Division, and we encourage you to try them all!
Progression – Players will begin at Soldier Rank 1 and rank up through a limited
- progression to unlock weapons, scorestreaks, equipment, and Basic Training Skills.
Sledgehammer was fairly tight-lipped about the details of the War Mode, but they will be unveiling more details about it at this year’s GamesCom on August 22nd next week, along with further details on the content within the private beta.
Beyond that, Sledgehammer has run into some PR problems when it comes to the depiction of the game as a front-facing title toward the public. Co-founder Michael Condrey attempted to publicly shame one gamer for asking about Swastikas in the multiplayer mode, and the team have also been attempting to put diversity and inclusiveness at the forefront of their marketing efforts for the World War II shooter, making it difficult for a lot of gamers to get excited for the game.
