Now that gamers around the globe have had a chance to give the Call of Duty: WW2 beta a run for its money, Sledgehammer Games has released a new video that puts the upcoming shooter’s pre-order bonuses on display. With just a little under 2 months to go until Call of Duty: WW2 releases in full, investors will be keeping a close eye on how many pre-orders the title can procure ahead of its holiday shopping window release.
The pre-order bonuses will allow those playing online to immediately unlock their weapon of choice via a permanent weapon unlock token, removing the grinding process entirely for those who don’t want to slog through with some other weapon while they progress toward their favorite. To make the process of quickly leveling up a little bit easier for those who invest in the game before its launch, Sledgehammer Games is also giving those who pre-order four hours of gametime that will grant them double XP.
Fans who are looking forward to seeing the series return to its historical roots should take note that Activision doesn’t see this historic return as a one-off, and while Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg wouldn’t comment further on the years to come, that’s a pretty strong indicator the days of robotic jumpsuits and spacefaring warfare won’t return to the spotlight of the Call of Duty franchise for some time.
Sledgehammer’s beta run of the game across all platforms has given the studio plenty of feedback, which in turn means some hefty balancing changes are under consideration before the title’s release this November. Beyond this, creative director Cameron Dayton also commented that this iteration’s zombie mode is the scariest one yet, though the recent beta only allowed for fans to try out the standard multiplayer modes as opposed to witnessing zombie hordes.
The idea of immediate access to one’s favorite weapon is certainly an alluring prospect, though only time will tell if these pre-order bonuses will be enough to convince fans to pre-order Call of Duty: WW2 en masse.
Call of Duty: WW2 will release on November 3, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
