Call of Duty: WWII Beta Confirmed for PC
Michael Condrey, the co-founder for Sledgehammer games, has stated that the release of Call of Duty: WWII beta for PC is definitely going to occur. The release of the game was announced on the 21st of April this year, with a reveal trailer provided the day before that, and the worldwide debut for the game is set to take place on the 3rd of November 2017.
Beta Tests to Take Place Before
Before Call of Duty: World War II’s release in November there will be beta tests taking place:
- From August 25 to August 28 on the PlayStation 4
- From September 1 to September 4 on the PS4 and Xbox One
There has been no word on when the PC beta tests will be taking place, however, which has caused some consternation amongst this group of gamers. This has been worsened by some sites reporting, or at least implying, that the beta will not be available for PC at all, which is what happened with the 2016 release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Reddit Reveals PC Beta Tests are Guaranteed
A very brief exchange on Reddit, however, the US social news aggregation, discussion, and web-content rating site, saw Condrey state that the Call of Duty WWII beta for PC would definitely be occurring.
Although there was no indication given of when it is going to take place, or what the requirements may end up being, PC gamers have been mollified with Condrey’s guarantee. Until more information appears, however, gamers will have to be content with options like the best slots online as they await their chance to play the latest instalment of the Call of Duty series of games.
The Development of the Game
A contemporary Call of Duty title set to take place in World War II was hinted at in an interview with Condrey for the 2014 release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In the interview with Metro, Condrey was asked what the possibilities were in terms of where the next Call of Duty could go as far as the setting was concerned, and he replied that the answer was a curious one.
He went on to say that he was only able to answer the question from his own personal tastes and opinions, but that some of his favourite entertainments were set in and around the Second World War. He added that he was a huge fan of Band of Brothers, a 2001 war drama miniseries from the USA which is based on the 1992 non-fiction book by that name by Stephen E. Ambrose.
Condrey went on to say that this war was one made for great heroes, and was sort of the last one that had any kind of noble cause underlying it. He said that this period of history would make for a wonderful next generation game when coupled by the values and robustness of the latest production values which would be able to bring it to life.
