With Call of Duty: WW2‘s Private Beta not long from now, Activision and Sledgehammer Games have decided to put out an official trailer for the event to give fans of the forthcoming first-person shooter a taste of the action to whet their appetites. Since the single player content for the title seems to be solely limited to the release’s official launch, it seems as if the Private Multiplayer Beta will at least give fans a look into each Division’s Skills and Training, the weapons available, as well as some of its new maps.
As seen in the trailer below for Call of Duty: WW2‘s Private Multiplayer Beta, those who pre-order will receive access to the trial, and can jump into the action starting on August 25, 2017 for PlayStation 4, with a beta for Xbox One to follow on September 1, 2017. Players will be able to take part in sniper, shotgun, and machine gun firefights, inflict Molotov cocktail damage, take down enemies with bayonet melee kills, and much more by enlisting in different Divisions including Infantry, Expeditionary, Airborne, Armored, or Mountain.
Furthermore, Call of Duty: WW2‘s Private Multiplayer Beta will feature three different modes including Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint, and each of them will be experienced on at least three separate maps known as Pointe Du Hoc, Ardennes, and Gibraltar. Fans taking part in the beta will also be introduced to War Mode‘s Operation Breakout and the game’s progression system, which starts players out at Soldier Rank 1, allowing them to rank up through a limited progression to unlock weapons, scorestreaks, equipment, and Basic Training Skills.
Of course, not every gameplay feature will be included in Call of Duty: WW2‘s Private Multiplayer Beta, as Sledgehammer Games has insisted that its Headquarters social space, Supply Drops and Loot, and its full suite of competitive features for the eSports crowd won’t be accessible during the trial. Not to mention, remaining maps and modes from the main portion of the title, additional War Mode maps, and the full armory of weapons, scorestreaks, Basic Training, and equipment will be excluded as well.
All things considered, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of fans champing at the bit to try out Call of Duty: WW2‘s multiplayer by way of the Private Beta, especially since there will be rewards doled out simply for giving it a go. Plus, with Sledgehammer Games having insisted that the title will take players back to the roots of the franchise, the fan base is definitely prepared to see how the studio has altered the gameplay since the series’ last and more futuristic entry, Infinite Warfare.
Call of Duty: WW2 is slated to release on November 3, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
