As Call of Duty has evolved over the years, its progression and customization systems have as well. Some features have carried over from one game to another, while others have fallen by the wayside. Gamers who enjoy playing Call of Duty‘s multiplayer with the Support Class will be glad to hear how it is and isn’t involved in Call of Duty: WWII.
Differing playstyles are synonymous with any game, regardless of the genre and regardless of the mode. Multiplayer experiences especially have to accommodate all gameplay styles people bring. Call of Duty is making sure they are doing just this with their Divisions system.
By now you might have had the chance to sample Call of Duty: WWII‘s multiplayer. Betas on both console and PC have run their course and now launch is next. Sledgehammer Games recently spoke with We Write Things about bringing the spirit of the Support Class in Call of Duty: WWII.
“Armored Division carries the most firepower with the heavily armed Light Machine Guns. By combining Armored Division with the Basic Training Requisition, that allows Scorestreaks to not reset upon death, players can build a soldier that matches their support playstyle,” Sledgehammer Games said.
Armored Division sounds like it’ll be perfect for those who have embraced the Support Class in previous Call of Duty games. Each Division will focus on a different playstyle and customization is at the heart of every one. Sledgehammer went onto detail Call of Duty: WWII‘s Division system.
“Each Division has its own specific abilities, weapon skills, and uniforms that player level up as they battle while enlisted in that Division. In addition, players are able to customize their weapon loadouts, Scorestreaks, and the look of their soldier as they rank up on the front lines. Furthermore, through Headquarters, our new social space, players can show off their unique look and the skills they’ve honed in ways never seen before in Call of Duty,” Sledgehammer Games said.
Activision and Sledgehammer Games are working on the next iteration in the Call of Duty franchise. Nov. 3 will be when players can experience Call of Duty: WWII. The game will launch on PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Call of Duty.
