In an interesting piece of information, the Call of Duty WW2 Headquarters will be able to support 48 players. Considering Call of Duty multiplayer matches only consists of 9v9 battles, the 48 player support is undoubtedly for the new game’s hub. Having a hub this big should make for some fun moments while waiting for matches to start.
Reddit fans have discussed the impressive feat, which was touted in the game’s page on Xbox Live. Some have made jokes about the amount of people in Headquarters, given how annoying some internet trolls are. Overall, fans can expect the usual amount of intenseness from the series’ renowned multiplayer which shooting will adore.
48 Soldiers, 48 Problems
Activision will need to do some heavy tinkering with their connections if they want to have plenty of people shooting each other daily. Having all these players in the Call of Duty WW2 Headquarters is one thing, and they have to make sure they all trash talk civilly.
As of now, all we know is that players can show their avatars and prestige achievements in Headquarters. More details will be shown at E3 2017 presser. In the meantime, fans can get a 7-second look at Headquarters in this tweet from CharlieIntel.
Considering how the game is touting player battles already, the company seems to be confident that their online system will be good. To be fair, their Call of Duty games have always had great multiplayer, so this won’t be the company’s biggest challenge. Now that gameplay has been revealed, fans have plenty to look forward to when this game comes out in November.
Aside from the 48 players in the Call of Duty WW2 Headquarters, it will be interesting to see if the game does well overall. Most fans know that Activision went into this direction after the negative reception Infinite Warfare got, despite not being a bad game. Going back in time worked out well for Battlefield 1, so it’ll be interesting to see if it works here.
Players can expect a solid single-player campaign, since that’s something every Call of Duty game has had. The one for Battlefield 1 was solid, but also felt like it was a tutorial for the multiplayer, which is something this game might want to avoid. No one liked it when Star Wars Battlefront did that, so the developers better put a lot of care in single-player as well.
Call of Duty WW2 is slated for a November 3 release on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Expect more news to come soon, as the game’s release date gets closer.
