While we are still awaiting details to arrive for Call of Duty: WWII through official channels, newly leaked information prepares us for things to come.
According to the same sources that previously leaked the World War II setting of this year’s installment, Sledgehammer Games will be hosting a “Private Beta” for Call of Duty: WWII shortly before release. Those who do get through will get the opportunity of trying out a portion of the single-player campaign as well as the multiplayer module before the rest.
However, the only way of securing a spot in the upcoming closed beta is to pre-order the game. As of yet, there is no confirmation of whether the developer will host an open beta later on. It would be incredibly surprising if that was the case. Hence, we can be hopeful about getting early access without having to secure an early copy.
Elsewhere, studio head and co-founder Michael Condrey took to Twitter earlier today to share a special message with fans from London’s Churchill War Rooms. The developer revealed that the development team invested a lot of time in researching these past two years. The goal was to make Call of Duty: WWII as accurate as possible, and reenacting every setting in accordance with historical evidence. Sledgehammer Games believes that it was successful in doing so.

Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A worldwide reveal is confirmed to take place on April 26, at which we will hear more on the game’s story, features, and more.
The last time Sledgehammer Games dipped its fingers into the Call of Duty franchise was back in 2014 when it released Advanced Warfare. However, the studio is ditching the futuristic setting this year. The new installment will be returning to the series’ roots, much to the pleasure of long-time fans of the franchise.
