Call of Duty WW2 Beta Impressions

Every November we see a new release from Call of Duty and this year is no different. However, keeping up with the recent trend in online gaming and previous entries, Call of Duty WW2 is hosting a private beta for players who pre-ordered the game over 2 separate weekends and with the first weekend coming to a conclusion we've got some thoughts about the new game -- which is also an M rated title.

Back to Basics

While more recent entries in the series have dabbled in more futuristic warfare, Advanced WarfareBlack Ops 3, and Infinite Warfare, we're going to see a return to the days of earlier entries like Call of Duty 2 or even Treyarch's debut game World at War. This new entry in the series will return players to World War 2, one of the most common settings for some of the most important first person shooters like Medal of Honor and Brothers in Arms. This means that mobility is going to be slowed down drastically in Call of Duty WW2. Wall-running, double jumping, and sliding are gone in exchange for shorter sprints, tiny hops, and beloved dive from the original Black Ops

Call of Duty's Beta - Kidzworld Weekly News

 

Playing Call of Duty WW2 is as simple as it gets, point and shoot. Most of the weapons move away from the crazy tech of the sci-fi games in the franchise with the exception of shotgun imbued with incendiary rounds that are basically flaming bullets. I'd expect to see more options in the full game but weaponry feels a little light in this beta, especially when it comes to secondary weapons which are limited to a pair of pistols and a single launcher that requires a perk to be used. 

What's New?

Every Call of Duty game in the past has concluded its rounds by replaying the game winning kill, this is typically a slow motion moment of someone getting the winning point for the team, but WW2 will be ditching this for an Overwatch-inspired "bronze star" replay. This is a heroic moment that can take place at any time during the round, it's typically an awesome streak or something that generates a lot of points, the only time I was fortunate enough to be featured during a clip was when I took out a pair of enemies with a single shot.

Loadouts also have a new focus on which division of military you'll join. Infantry will be focused more on the use of a rifle and melee, while Airborne will equip you with a suppressed weapon. Using identical weapon loadouts with different divisions can totally change how you'll fight through a round and one loadout could be perfect for Team Deathmatch but it may suffer when used in the game's new War mode. Another idea that seems influenced by Overwatch, War mode is about either attacking or defending at certain points and it culminates by moving a tank across a map similar to a payload in Overwatch. It's a welcome idea that could use a bit more refinement after this beta.

If you missed on trying the new game early then you'll have another chance during this upcoming weekend to play the game on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. There are some definite changes here but they're all welcome. If getting back to the series roots inspired Call of Duty WW2 then I can't wait to see what future games will be like.
