Just a few hours ago, we reported that Call of Duty: WWII apparently had a triple XP buff active according to Sledgehammer Games. While we couldn’t discern at the time whether Michael Condrey, Sledgehammer Games boss, was joking or not, we know the real deal.
It seems Condrey wasn’t joking at all, and what’s more, the game launched with double XP active for everyone unintentionally! This was revealed by Condrey himself over on Reddit where he address the triple XP questions.
For those that can’t read the Reddit post, it says:
No sarcasm in my response. We launched with 2XP active, unintentionally. Everyone was getting 2XP since 11/3 and up until we made the playlist change late Thursday night, which effectively launched 3XP.
Come Monday, when we turn off the XP bonus, it will effectively revert to what we should have had at launch (aka 1XP).
So early players, you got a huge head start.
PS. Positive intent is the spirit of life. Keep it classy, Reddit.
While it’s still a chore for most people (including me) to get into actual matches due to the dedicated servers being turned off in favor of peer-to-peer (P2P), it might be worth it to wait it out until you get into a match just to get some of that triple XP juice before the spigot is turned off come Monday.
