Call of Duty: WWII‘s latest update has ended the loneliness of the shooter’s Headquarters social space by finally letting players actually socialize in the space.
Headquarters, originally meant for up to 48 players, has been an almost exclusively solo experience since the game launched in early November, as an attempt by the developer to ease strain on the game’s servers. Players could invite friends into their instances, but only now can 48 random players finally occupy the same Headquarters area, free to commend each other, take each other on in the 1v1 pit, and more.
Call of Duty fan site Charlie Intel tweeted out an image of what Headquarters looks like supporting the amount of people it was meant to.

WWII‘s new update also brings with it the delayed introduction of COD Points, which players can now purchase with real money to use in buying in-game loot boxes that reward randomized cosmetic items. Unfortunately, the new weapons that were recently leaked to Reddit are no where to be found in the update. If the leak is genuine, players will have to apparently wait a bit longer.
In addition to the new weapons, players also have changes to the game’s damage flinching to look forward to, as studio head Michael Condrey recently announced on Twitter.
