Call of Duty: WW2 Map Packs Appear To Be A PS4 Timed Exclusive News PlayStation  Call of Duty: WWII Call of Duty: WW2

There was no doubt that we’d be getting a new Call of Duty game this year, but all the speculation surrounded what era this one would be set in. After some recent leaks, it was officially confirmed the other day that Call of Duty: WW2 is indeed real and a full reveal is coming in a few days. While we’re waiting for that announcement, some other leaks have come out and the latest involves the timed exclusivity of the game’s map packs.

In more recent years, the practice of time exclusivity has become a bigger deal when it comes to downloadable content, with Call of Duty being at the forefront. Xbox platforms had first dibs for awhile, but for the last couple years Sony and the PlayStation 4 have received them first, which is looking to continue with Call of Duty: WW2.

This information comes via Amazon UK, which has been the first retailer to post cover art for the game on its various platforms. Specifically on the listing with the cover art for the PS4 version however, you will notice the logo that has been on previous games that states you get to play the map packs 30 days early as a PlayStation exclusive.

This is no surprise at all considering that it has been this way the last few years, but considering we saw a switch a few years ago, it could have always happened again. As with the past, this just means that the map packs will first launch on PlayStation 4 and then come to Xbox One and PC a month later for you to enjoy.

There is still plenty more details to be revealed about Call of Duty: WW2, so make sure to stay tuned for any information that comes out of the livestream announcement this coming Wednesday.

    COD WWII could have potential for large online war Clans again. It must have: User Controlled Private Servers, good Clan Support, a social area for Clan members and friends to meet(In Headquarters?), able to host Private Clan Wars on invitation and a number of other Clan Supported options like hosting Private and Open Clan Wars, Private and Open Competitions & Tournaments. We’ll see…..

    This game must support Large online War Clans! This “Headquarters” social room shows potential for Clans. 24 vs 24 can work. 32 vs 32 would be better.

    Without Clan Support: I ‘might’ buy one copy of this game… maybe I won’t buy it at all. I’m an old SOCOM and Battlefield 3 fan. But there’s nothing for Clan Support in BF4 or BF1… and the next BF game is years away. To switch back to CoD again… I need a good reason.

    WITH CLAN SUPPORT: I will buy one copy of this game. And so will over 100+ Clan members in our Clan. It would be good for Sledgehammer Games to think about this before this game is released!!

    9/20/17. Update: I won’t touch this game with a ten foot pole. I’ll wait for BF5 and hope it’s done right like BF3 was. If not… I’m giving my PS4 away, I’m not buying the new PS5 and will find a new hobby. Real gaming seems to be in the crapper.

    Video Game Media: “Since its initial unveiling months ago fans have been excited for every piece of new info released about Call of Duty: WW2.”

    
yeah… you can see how “excited” the fans are… by looking at the few or empty forum posts here on this website and the video gaming websites across the 
Country. WooHoo!



    When BF5 is released in 2018… CoD WW2 will be a fart in the wind. I was interested in CoD WW2 for any possible Clan Support with User Custom Private Servers for my Clan of over 100+ members. Yeah… like that isn’t going to happen now!



    CoD will never change or improve it’s game mold. Stuck in a rut for good.
