Call of Duty


 

Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey has been confirming multiplayer features for Call of Duty: WWII at a breakneck pace recently, and he’s making longtime fans of the series pretty happy.

While ranked game modes had already been confirmed, competitive players will be pleased to learn that dedicated ranked playlists will also be returning in Call of Duty: WWII. Condrey confirmed this with a screenshot of what looks to be the multiplayer menu. The series’ previous entry, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, infamously did not include ranked playlists at launch, only (sort of) adding the feature through MLG’s GameBattles much later in the game’s life cycle.

The screenshot also showcased a Daily Mode. This will likely include daily challenges for players to complete, netting them more experience, though this has yet to be confirmed.

Condrey also confirmed more specific features of the multiplayer. The emblem editor and a fan-favorite weapon, the PPSh-41, will be returning, though details about the latter’s ammo capacity, which has fluctuated over the series’ lifetime, were not revealed.

One feature that will not be returning is the Steady Aim perk. This news should please the more competitive gamers who saw Steady Aim as an unbalanced, no-skill perk. We will likely see completely new perks, thanks to the new Division system.

We’re sure Condrey will continue to slowly unveil more details about Call of Duty: WWII‘s multiplayer as we approach the beta, which begins August 25th for PlayStation 4 customers who pre-order the game.

Call of Duty: WWII is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 3rd.
