Call of Duty: WWII’s Headquarters, a brand new feature not too dissimilar to Destiny’s Tower, has been introduced in more detail by Activision in a new trailer.
Headquarters has been described as a social space, giving players the opportunity to take a break from the warzone and share their experience with others. We understand a lot more about what’s on offer now, though, as you can see from the video below.
One of the most interesting details to arise is that Headquarters will still be competitive, dishing out XP in a number of ways. Firing ranges will be accessible to all, and will give players a chance to compete for the highest score, and a range to trial each scorestreak. Not all Headquarters will be as impersonal, though: 1v1 will allow players to battle against each other, again for much-needed XP. It looks as though other players can spectate rounds as well, which is an exciting feature.
There’s also a change in how players prestige, with a ceremony taking place each time the level is awarded. An actual ceremony will take place in which the players prestiges in front of a crowd of onlookers – whether or not they’re actual players is unclear, though.
Players won’t have access to Headquarters in the Call of Duty: WWII beta, however it will be available upon the game’s full release. The beta opens for PlayStation 4 players who have pre-ordered the game on the 25th August and closes on the 28th August, whereas Xbox One players will have access to it between 1st and 5th September.
Call of Duty: WWII will release on the 3rd November on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
