Call of Duty: WW II recently wrapped up a beta event on PC. Those who had been waiting patiently all this time could hardly enjoy the new installment as almost every nook and cranny was infested with cheating players.
In light of the terrible ordeal, many have begun wondering whether this will be the ultimate outcome once Call of Duty: WWII releases next month. There was a reason that Sledgehammer Games refrained from making any statements. It was because Activision had taken it upon itself to address the situation.
Posting on the official blog earlier today, the publisher explained that the insane amount of cheating/hacking during the beta was because the game did not feature any level of anti-cheat technology. However, this will not be the case following the official launch.
“We take a level playing field extremely serious and will monitor and react to this as a top priority on an ongoing basis,” Activision stated.
The publisher also highlighted a few features that it plans to make available for the PC version at launch. These were picked up through feedback provided by the community, making it apparent once again that Sledgehammer Games is listening intently.
- Scroll bars on options that scroll.
- Allow numerical entry to mouse and controller sensitivity options (in addition to slider).
- Streamline the exit of the game.
- Clearly indicate being in Party status in UI.
- Making the resolution options more clear and consistent.
- Video option video memory indicator.
- Warnings about video memory over-commitment.
- Option to bind lean left/right keys in multiplayer.
- And a number of smaller issues that we’re tracking, which we’ll update in future patch notes.
Activision said it is “extremely grateful” for the feedback players sent in over the course of the beta. All of that was a “huge help” for the team.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to launch for all major platforms on November 3.
