CALL OF DUTY WW2 is confirmed for PS4, Xbox One and PC, but it’s Sony that appears to have struck a deal for timed DLC exclusivity.
Call of Duty WW2 (first image) fans are in for a treat if they buy the game on PS4.
In a blow to Xbox One users, an Amazon listing seemingly confirms that Call of Duty: WWII DLC will launch first on PS4.
The PS4 box art says that PS4 users can “play map packs 30 days early”.
This is very much the trend for this console generation, and won’t come as much of a surprise to fans.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare DLC launches first on PS4, while Destiny 2 will also feature exclusive content for PlayStation.
Fans will no doubt find out more when Call of Duty: WWII is revealed in full on April 26 at 6pm UK time.
While the clip doesn’t reveal an awful lot about the game, leaked marketing material suggests that it will feature a standalone co-op mode.
The material also points towards a November 3 release date, and reveals more about the setting.
“Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war,” reads a line from the game description.
“Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war against a global power throwing the world into tyranny.”
Call of Duty WW2 is said to include “many of World War II’s most iconic locations”.
“Players will also enjoy exciting new ways to interact and socialize with their friends and the Call of Duty community,” the description continues.
Fans who pre order the game will be able to take part in a private multiplayer beta, although dates and platforms are yet to be revealed.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on a Nintendo Switch version.
Multiplayer Description: Call of Duty: “WWII multiplayer engages players grounded, fast-paced combat across many of World War II’s most iconic locations. Players will also enjoy exciting new ways to interact and socialise with their friends and the Call of Duty community.”
