September’s Call of Duty WWII beta confidently demonstrated Sledgehammer Game’s vision and gameplay goals. Most notably, a return to the gritty and grounded setting of World War II.
But Sledgehammer’s ambitions extend far beyond a mere change in tone and scenery. With its new War Mode, the studio is looking to contribute a fresh chapter to Call of Duty’s competitive legacy. War Mode pits two teams against each other in a mission with shifting objectives that plays a bit like an FPS tug-of-war, with one sides digging in to hold ground and the other pushing forward relentlessly.
I enjoyed my time with War Modes, so I caught up with Multiplayer Designer Sean Soucy to learn more about the genesis of Sledgehammer’s gritty new gem. Read on, and get ready for November 3!
Sledgehammer is bringing a fresh new perspective to its new Nazi Zombies mode that will ship alongside Call of Duty: WWII on November 3. Like its spiritual predecessors, this Zombies experience is cloaked in mystery and mystique.
Luckily, Sledgehammer’s Cameron Dayton and Jon Horsley are giving us a peek behind the curtain. The basic premise — a four-player co-op battle against waves of murderous zombies — remains intact, but Sledgehammer is intent on adding its own unique fingerprint to the celebrated co-op series. What most struck me was Sledgehammer’s focus on generating fear in the player. Watch our new video interview to learn more about Sledgehammer’s plans.
Just a few days after D-Day, the Battle for Carentan took place in France as the United States Army battled the German Wehrmacht for control of the small French town less than 20 miles from Omaha Beach.
Carentan debuted as a Multiplayer map in Call of Duty, and a brand-new version of this fan-favorite is heading to Call of Duty: WWII. Featuring large exteriors with excellent sniper lanes, and interior areas for intense close combat, Carentan is a map that you won’t want to miss.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for… Willard Wyler’s Halloween Scream! That might seem like a lot to scream when you’re terrified, but you can’t argue with the master of the macabre when it comes to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Beginning on October 9, this event is designed to unleash pure terror with new game modes, Double XP, and free Halloween-themed loot. Just pray you survive long enough to enjoy it!
Recently, we were thrilled to announce PlayStation’s Limited Edition Call of Duty: WWII PS4 Bundle, which launches November 3, and is available for pre-order now. It includes a custom-designed 1TB PS4 console, complete with matching DualShock 4 controller and Call of Duty: WWII.
We are excited Call of Duty: WWII returns the franchise to the roots that made Call of Duty a household name. Our latest campaign highlights the courage, strength, and brotherhood of this era, and we can’t wait to dive in. We’re proud that PlayStation is the best place to play the latest installment of this classic series.
Ever since 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War, I’ve hugely appreciated the Zombies co-op mode that has evolved into a series staple. With Sledgehammer Games taking the reins for COD: WWII, I’ve been dying to learn how this talented studio will innovate on one of the most popular cooperative shooters in history.
This is an especially important question since some of Sledgehammer’s founding members were responsible for the horror classic Dead Space! So we tossed a batch of questions at COD: WWII’s Zombies lead Jon Horsley, senior director at Sledgehammer Games, to learn what the studio is up to. Read on to get the first nitty-gritty details on COD: WWII’s Zombies mode, straight from Sledgehammer.
Today I’m happy to introduce the Limited Edition Call of Duty: WWII PlayStation 4 Bundle. This special bundle features a green camo PS4 system equipped with a 1TB hard drive – which if you take a closer look you might spot patterns of something you’re all familiar with… The bundle also includes a matching green DualShock 4 wireless controller, and a physical standard edition copy of Call of Duty: WWII. And don’t forget, PS4 users get early access to Call of Duty: WWII DLC Map Packs, which will launch on PS4 30 days ahead of other platforms (sold separately).
