Sledgehammer Games and Activision have pulled back the curtain on the Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer at E3 2017, providing players with the first hands-on for the highly anticipated game that will take the series back to its roots.
Before we go any further, make sure to watch the Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer trailer above to whet your appetite for what’s to come. Players at E3 that stop by the Activision Booth and the Sony Booth will be able to play portions of the Multiplayer on PlayStation 4 Pro consoles, and soon you can experience the game on your own in the Private Beta.
You can pre-order Call of Duty: WWII now and get access to the Private Beta, coming first to the PlayStation 4 on August 25. There are more details in the image above, and we hope to see you on the field.
Additionally, players who pre-order the game at select retailers will receive the Divisions Pack. This pack includes five Premium Gear Sets inspired by the five Divisions in Call of Duty: WWII.
Infantry Division riflemen are always in the thick of it with finely-tuned rifles and impeccable marksmanship.
Well-equipped with incendiary rounds and tactical grenades, the Expeditionary Division’s shotguns literally pack heat.
Airborne Division paratroopers endure extreme physical conditioning to outmaneuver opponents with their submachine guns.
Focused on stealth and target identification, Mountain Division snipers generate constant fear in the enemy and strike when least expected.
Armored Division soldiers are the best supplied in battle and hold down positions with their explosives and light machine guns.
Divisions fundamentally redefines how players invest in their Multiplayer career. This is a reimagining of the create-a-class system, and players will choose from five iconic World War II divisions each with specific division training and division weapon skills. This streamlined approach to Multiplayer gives players the ability to reinforce their individual play styles while dominating the enemy in some of the most iconic locations of the world’s largest conflict.
