Sledgehammer Games has updated the ongoing Call of Duty: WW2 private multiplayer beta for PS4 and Xbox One, expanding on the available content therein. This latest update has added two major changes to the beta: raising the level cap, and adding the Kill Confirmed mode, as well as several smaller gameplay adjustments. Sledgehammer also made several notes about potential Call of Duty: WW2 changes being considered based on feedback. Flinch is going to be reevaluated, and several more controller configurations will be added come November.
Raising the level cap is likely the most significant change made to the Call of Duty: WW2 private beta today. Jumping from 30 to 35, the new level cap will allow players to access to a variety of new content previously limited by the beta’s capped progression. Weapons, equipment, and basic training will unlock as players move up in levels. These unlocks will include the M1928, also known as the Thompson submachine gun, as well as the Flamethrower Scorestreak.
Kill Confirmed, a popular Call of Duty game mode with a lot of history, is also now available to be played. The previously available game modes, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and the new War Mode, are all rather plain in structure. The Kill Confirmed mode adds some diversity to what’s available, and is a fan favorite. Players going all the way back to Modern Warfare 3 should recall the dog tag collecting mode fondly, and hopefully use that familiarity to make the most of the beta’s remaining hours.
As far as small changes, Sledgehammer has made several adjustments based on player feedback just to see how they work out in a live environment.
- Team Deathmatch’s score limit was raised at 100
- Domination kills are now valued at 100 points
- Scorestreak changes include the reduction of Molotovs to one use and making Paratroopers more difficult
- Aiming down sights (ADS) coming out of a spring has been tuned
Sledgehammer is encouraging everyone with feedback on Call of Duty: WW2‘s beta to write it up and submit it either through the beta’s Reddit thread, the official survey, or on social media. It has only been one week since the initial closed PlayStation 4 private beta and a ton of changes have already gone through. Every bit of feedback helps and makes for a better game come launch.
Call of Duty: WW2 releases on November 3 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This weekend’s private beta ends Monday, September 4 at 10:00am PT.
