With E3 2017 being so close, PlayStation’s Sid Shuman and developers from SledgeHammer Games, took to the PlayStation Blog to answer some of the most-asked questions about Call of Duty: WW2.
There are a couple of good questions asked by fans, but down below are the best ones including new information on the single player campaign, multiplayer factions, and more.
Check out the questions and answers down below:
@Keith_NRX5 During the campaign will you stay as one character, or will you go through multiple? #CoDWWII
Glen Schofield: The story follows Red Daniels and his squad. Red grew up on a farm in a small town, and his journey is one of personal growth that takes us through some of the most dramatic and iconic moments of the war. He is a young recruit who is seeing his first real combat during the invasion of Normandy. While the main story will follow Red, you will play as a few other characters Red encounters, including a female French resistance fighter named Rousseau.
@KempskiWWE Will we see a variety of nations in multiplayer?
Michael Condrey, co-founder and studio head of Sledgehammer Games: Yes. World War II was a global conflict that affected nearly everyone on the planet. Men and women of all nationalities contributed to the effort in many important ways. Our game showcases a broad and diverse ensemble cast in all modes of play.
@MrsNewbhero Will there be any new game modes in multiplayer? Or maybe even bringing back s&r or blitz
Michael Condrey: 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.
With a couple of good questions asked and answer, fans of the series should be hyped for this year’s Call of Duty. We expect to see more of CoD: WW2 including multiplayer action, beta announcements, and much more at E3 2017. If you want to read the full article from the PlayStation Blog, click here.
