Call of Duty: WWII is getting some much needed updates

Call of Duty: WWII is getting some much needed updates

In a blog post on its website, the devs describe WW2's post-launch period as a "whirlwind" wherein online issues have stirred frustration.

For gamers who are planning to play Call of Duty: WWII for a year, it doesn't make sense to wait and buy the DLC separately or even to skip one or two of them since that will limit the matchmaking as you get split into a smaller and smaller pool.

At least that is what it's supposed to do. Since the game released, I've yet to see a single other player in the game's online social hub, dubbed Headquarters. This affected server performance across the board and Sledgehammer is well aware of the problem. However, we also know we've had issues, there's frustration. In addition, we encourage you to visit and support The Greatest Generations Foundation, whose partnership and collaboration was vital to the making of this series. As a result, we moved to P2P (listen) servers. What we're not fans of is the latest connectivity issues that have been plaguing the game. Our objective to return to dedicated servers is our highest priority. There's a laundry list of things that are happening to players, like getting disconnected from parties, lobbies, post-match disconnects and freezes of the game that require a complete restart.

Although originally launched with dedicated servers and a bustling social Headquarters feature, most PS4 & Xbox One users are left asking, "Why Am I alone in Headquarters?" This does mean that some might find it more hard to earn achievements such as watching someone open a loot crate on the beaches of Normandy, but this can easily be circumvented by inviting friends into your lobby.

The team has a PC Call of Duty: WWII update ready, but they want to address the issues stemming from the update on consoles before potentially pushing out an update with more problems to PC users.

Sledgehammer launched a 2XP event for the weekend just gone, but players soon noticed the amount of XP they gained wasn't quite double.

KitGuru Says: It's still early days for Call of Duty: WWII but these issues should have been discovered before its release.
