Call Of Duty World War 2 Multiplayer

Call Of Duty World War 2 Multiplayer

Impressions

We recently got invited to play Call Of Duty World War 2 Multiplayer at a secret location in London, England. Everything outside the location looked normal, you wouldn’t think something incredibly cool was going on inside. While inside was decorated to look very gritty and like a World War 2 bunker, we felt like we had time travelled back in time! While there we got to play 3 differen modes, surprisingly with the developers, Sledgehammer games.

This was A LOT of fun as we got to learn about the game as well as play with some really cool people. Most noteworthy is that the learning curve is as easy as ever. This is a Call Of Duty game after all, which plays a lot like the series of old. We felt like we had Call of Duty 2 in our hands, we loved the old game and this is even better. We liked the nostalgia feel that this took us back to what made Call Of Duty, Call Of Duty. While remaining modern with things such as kill streaks. So those beware of those campers!

Check out each of the videos below for some more information of the game types!

Team Deathmatch

Not much to explain with this game mode. If you’ve played a lot of Call Of Duty you know the score. If you haven’t, this game requires you to get as many kills as possible in a 10 minute match or first to 100. (or whatever the server host decides if it’s a private match) Killstreaks (extra abilities that you get once you achieve x amount of kills without dieing. Increasing in devastation as the amount of kills you get before you die) apply here as well. Keep an eye out for the SICK double kill Marcus achieved in this match.

Gridiron

This is an upgrade on the old ‘Uplink’ mode of Call of Duty multiplayer. Instead of a Satellite, as in Uplink, you have a ball and two goals placed in the bases of each team. The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible before the time runs out. You can still shoot one another and your scorestreaks work as they would in Team Deathmatch, you can pass the ball too. You get 3 points for throwing the ball into the goal and 6 points for a touchdown and that, basically is Gridiron.

War

War is an objective based mode that requires you to work as a team to complete mini missions. They’re time based objectives, so it’s vital to complete all tasks before time is up. We had to complete Operation Neptune, based on the D-Day landings. One half of the match requires you to work as the allies and storm the beach of Normandy. The other puts you in the shoes of the German axis tasked with pushing the allies back on to the beach.

 

A MASSIVE THANK YOU!

Finally, a huge thank you to Michael and the team of Sledgehammer games for their time, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Even if we did lose each time!

Call Of Duty World War 2 Developer Interview

Call Of Duty World War 2

Developer Interview: Michael Condrey

The How To Kill An Hour team recently headed down to a super secret, top location in London to play Call of Duty World War 2. There’s A LOT more gameplay content available for you soon! So keep an eye out for that! There won’t be any disappointment, that much we will say! However, check out what happened when our own Marcus Bronzy had an interview with chief operating and development officer of Sledgehammer Games, Michael Condrey.

Michael and Marcus discussed everything from the story mode to the multiplayer and even touched on the fan favourite: Zombies! Call Of Duty World War 2 is built for entertainment purposes. But the game is based on an important aspect of the world’s history, which brings authenticity and respect to the young men and women that lost their lives during one of the worlds most devastating wars. Michael really goes deep to tell us and explain what extensive lengths the Sledgehammer development team went to researching World War 2. To both teach themselves and those that play that game what went on during the times of 1939-1945.

Another interesting soundbite from the interview with Michael is how the guys put a stop to one of their developers! Sledgehammer Games hired an ex-pro, MLG star, Rambo Ray who kept on defeating all of us. So the devs put something in on their play tests to put him down a peg or two. Did it work? Check out the interview above to find out!
