Latest Update for Call of Duty: WWII on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
A list of new features, fixes, and issues addressed in the latest update for Call of Duty: WWII on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
Game Update 6/25 – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
New Division: Cavalry - The Cavalry is an objective-focused Division that leads the way forward to victory. This new Division wields the Cavalry Shield, which offers protection against enemy attacks. The Cavalry Division also has improved objective capabilities, including capturing Domination flags faster, planting Search And Destroy bombs quicker, and swiftly building and destroying walls in War Mode. To make this the true team-play Division, the Cavalry also gets more points from objectives, and every two assists equal a kill. Lastly, the Cavalry can get back to the objective quicker (and ram enemies on the way) by entering a Shield Charge while sprinting. When used expertly, the Cavalry can change the tide of battle and get that tank across the line. See below for more details on Improved Objective Capabilities.
New Basic Training: Escalation - If you love rushing with an SMG, the Escalation Basic Training was made for you. After each kill, you can aim down sights twice as fast for a short period, allowing you to snap onto targets and take them down in rapid succession. Double Kills with Escalation instantly refill your magazine so you can keep slaying the opposition.
New Basic Training: Wanderlust - The new Wanderlust Basic Training is similar to a personal Gun Game. With each life, you respawn with a new random gun carrying up to six attachments. Also, using weapon swap will provide a new weapon. This unusual Basic Training makes each life feel unique as you use whatever weaponry is available.
New Basic Training: Specialist - When equipped, Specialist allows you to select three Basic Trainings to earn instead of Scorestreaks. At 200, 400, and 600 score, you unlock each Basic Training. And at 800 score, you are granted all Basic Trainings in the game. Progress resets on death, so stay alert. Specialist allows skilled players to feel the power of having multiple Basic Trainings at once.
Infected Mode continues! Look for it under the FEATURED tab.
