The Uplink mode from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is returning to Call of Duty: WWII but in a rather different form. Instead of a satellite drone, players will be carrying an old leather football in accordance with the historical setting.
The mode is called Gridiron and will be playable on a new map that is set in a war-tarnished London. Sledgehammer Games is yet to officially name the map but a recent rumor claimed that it is called London Docks.
There is also another new map that incoming for the new installment in the franchise. You might remember Carentan from the very first Call of Duty installment. It is being remade with new features but unfortunately will be exclusive to season pass holders. It is a pity that developers are still locking content away behind a pay-wall. Maybe the developer will come around later on and release the map for everyone with a free update.
Call of Duty: WWII just wrapped up its beta events earlier this month. In the wake of excessive cheating, Activision stepped in to assure that a robust anti-cheat system will accompany the official release of the game. The betas were apparently taking place without it.
Elsewhere, the developer has reiterated that it will keep listening to crucial feedback from the community for upcoming changes. It has already proven itself by finalizing adjustments and tweaks based on what the players experienced during the testing phases.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled for a worldwide release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will receive an enhancement update for the Xbox One X when the console launches on November 7. Those considering a purchase should feel at ease that the developer has promised support for 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) enhancements.
