Sledgehammer Games is taking the Call Of Duty franchise back to its roots with Call Of Duty: WWII. Since the reveal of the game, the developers have been revealing details regarding the game’s singleplayer, multiplayer, co-op, and zombies mode. With the reveal of the game the devs revealed that the upcoming game will feature online battles with a significant amount of players in one map, however, that player count has been reduced.
As noted by Reddit user, LePoosk, the player count for each online multiplayer match in Call Of Duty: WWII has been reduced to a maximum of 18, and the developers previously announced that the maximum numbers of players in each online multiplayer match will be 42.
Currently, it is unknown why Sledgehammer has reduced the player count for each online multiplayer match but expect a statement from the developers soon. However, given that a private beta for Call Of Duty: WWII will be held before the game’s launch, there is a possibility that the mentioned player count might be for the beta of the game and the final version will feature 42 player matches.
Aside from taking the franchise back to its roots, Sledgehammer Games also intends to introduce some new elements to the upcoming game. According to Sledgehammer Games, there will be no auto-restoration of health in the upcoming Call Of Duty and will highlight the vulnerability of the soldiers instead making them a superhero.
Sledgehammer Games has revealed that Call Of Duty: WWII will not be about an American War but it will capture the feel of the war as a global effort. The studio also revealed that players will get to play as a French Resistance Fighter.
Call Of Duty: WWII is a first-person action shooter in development at Sledgehammer Games and is scheduled to launch on November 3, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Also, PS4 owners will have 30 days early access to the game’s expansions and DLCs.
