Sledgehammer Games talk Call of Duty WWII Beta changes

The Call of Duty Beta is (sadly) over and after two weekends of war-games, Sledgehammer Games has started to dig though the feedback, outlining some of the changes we’ll be seeing in the multiplayer when the game launches in November.

The first major change will be to the Team Death Match scores, which was raised from 75 to 100 on the second weekend. After feedback from the community it sounds like Sledgehammer will drop the limit once again. “We’re looking to lock the decision, so please let us know your thoughts,” Sledgehammer said.

The new Aachen map which also was introduced in the second weekend may also be seeing some changes, as the map drew criticism for its close-quarter design with medium sightlines. Other changes included the sprintout ADS times which drew out the most criticism from player on Reddit . Sledgehammer stated for the final release that they may tweak this and make adjustments to “Flinch” however nothing has been locked down at this moment.

Sledgehammer also had several responses thanking the community for their input:

The M1928 is getting a lot of love. It is one of the most iconic weapons of WWII, and it’s great to see it in match. We’re glad you are enjoying playing with it. It’s a popular SMG at the studio. Though not the most popular. The Airborne Division prestige unlock weapon is pretty gassed.

A lot of you have expressed that you love the main menu music. Thank you so much for noticing all the extra creative touches we’ve added. We had a lot of amazing recording sessions with a phenomenal orchestra at a premier symphony location in Nashville. I know they will be glad to hear about all the positive reactions the music is receiving!

We rolled out an update that includes an important fix to some audio timing on weapon fire rates. There is no actual changes to the weapon tuning, but the audio may sound different on certain weapons.

Going back to boots-on-the-ground gameplay has really been the shot int he arm that the Call of Duty series needed after experiencing modern/future/space timelines, and our time with the beta was enjoyable enough that we’re excited to jump into the next entry of the series.

Call of Duty: WWII is set to release on November 3rd 2017. You can check out Lucas’ time with the beta in the video below.
