Remember when we said that a ton of new free content is making its way to Call of Duty: WWII? Well, that’s happening tomorrow, and it’s set to bring a lot of new changes as well.
First off, prepare for the new Resistance Division, as well as a host of new weapons and equipment to obtain. Customization is also getting some much-needed love as the emblem gallery and paint jobs are set to make their way too!
Here’s what Sledgehammer Games boss Michael Condrey had to say about it the event tomorrow.
The Resistance event begins tomorrow! There’s a lot coming to WWII over the next 5 weeks and Tuesday morning’s update will have a bunch of great new content and ways to play. We’re looking forward to playing with you, and seeing your reaction in game.
The Sledgehammer Games channels will have the full details tomorrow once the update has gone live. A few notable items include a console fix to the spectator bug, the addition of the emblem gallery feature, a tuning change to increase the speed of health regen, and of course, the new Resistance Division and new Resistance themed weapons, including the special weapon orders for directly earning them through match play (fwiw, the Volkssturmgewehr is one of my favorite ARs right now.) Prop Hunt, Demolition, Domination XL, HQ updates, and a host of other surprises are just around the corner.
Also, we have heard your feedback on friendly shell-shock. Creatively, it makes sense that danger close concussions wouldn’t distinguish friend from foe in an explosion, and that led to a visceral WWII feel at launch. That said, we are exploring options to reduce or eliminate the impact during matches. We’ll update more on this as we get a better compass heading on the solution, but know that we are looking into ways to address this community feedback.
Have a great Monday. I’m off to take down the Wolf’s Lair!
This is possibly the biggest game update to date that Sledgehammer Games will be rolling out, and I can’t wait to try out the new tweaks and fixes.
Once the patch is rolled out, we’ll make sure to let our readers know.
