Some more news has surfaced regarding what we can expect from the upcoming Call of Duty: WW2. This time, it isn’t about which forces you’ll be able to play as, or what to expect from the zombie mode, or which historic battles you’ll be playing through…
The Create-A-Class feature for multiplayer, as you know it, is gone. It’s not going to be a part of this game. Instead, it’s going to be replaced with something called divisions, and here’s how they’re going to work, according to Sledgehammer Games in a recent interview with the PlayStation Blog:
“Divisions fundamentally redefines how players invest in their Multiplayer soldier career. Replacing the create-a-class system, players choose from five iconic World War II divisions each with specific basic combat training, division training and weapon skills. We think it’ll intrigue Call of Duty series veterans, and we can’t wait for our fans to see it for themselves.”
It’s not clear exactly how that will work, but presumably you’ll choose between divisions such as snipers, infinity, and so on .. and you’ll be able to spend your accumulated points on upgrading each division, which will likely have their own unique weapons, rather than upgrading individual weapons to be used across classes. It sounds like it could be similar to the pre-made classes we’ve seen in past games, except now with the option to upgrade them specifically.
From the sounds of it, people are really looking forward to a throwback Call of Duty game that keeps the best parts of the recent entries but trims away some of the overkill, as many believe some of the more recent entries have really jumped the shark. There may be a small minority that can’t live without their double jumps in space, but they’ll just have to learn to deal with it.
