New Call Of Duty WWII Update Fixes Annoying Bugs


New Call Of Duty WWII Update Fixes Annoying Bugs

Call Of Duty WWII was a huge success. Even the base version you bought on launch day was great. If you just bought that and never got any of the DLC, you got a great game. Part of what has made it so good is the way Sledgehammer Games keep updating it to fix bugs and make sure it runs as smooth as possible. Well out of nowhere a couple of new fixes have happened.

The fixes are multiplayer based. One that was not game breaking, but super annoying was when the green star would pop up to let you know of a new item and it would not go away. This has been fixed as has Weekly Orders not being tracked properly.

Now I personally never noticed this bug, but in The Tortured Path section of Nazi Zombies in Across the Depths, zombies could get stuck here. If this has happened to you it won’t anymore as they have also fixed that. Weapons disappearing and making sure that the Jack In The Box actually works have also been fixed.

There are also some other smaller bugs that have been worked on, most of which many players will never event notice, but it is great to see the people at Sledgehammer Games keep working on the game to make sure when a bug does pop up it is squashed as soon as possible.

While many looks at Activision as one of the devils of gaming, you have to give them credit for allowing Sledgehammer Games to keep working on Call Of Duty WWII even though the focus in the company has switched to Black Ops IIII. Plus let’s face it the next COD game from Sledgehammer Games must be in the early development stages. So the fact they keep working on WWII is very commendable.


Final Week Of Call Of Duty WWII Liberty Strike Event


Final Week Of Call Of Duty WWII Liberty Strike Event

As I write this Liberty Strike which is the current Call Of Duty WWII community event is in its third and final week. The folks at Sledgehammer Games have done a tremendous job of giving us some great content since Call Of Duty WWII launched last year.

This final week sees the return of the Wanderlust Mosh Pit game mode which is a firm favorite of mine. This was the game mode for the first week and they are bringing it back. I really think that this is a game mode which should be part of the game all the time.

The Special Orders are between the 19th and 20th and require you to complete 40 matches which will get you a Sniper Bribe Reward. To get the Daily Order prize which is a Liberty Strike Bribe award you just need to play 30 matches which is very easy to do.

I think this event has been fun, but I do think that it comes across as Sledgehammer Games are running out of steam as it is not as balls to the wall as the other events have been. The best part of it has been the Wanderlust Mosh Pit game mode!

The Community Challenge is of course still running until the event closes on the 24th of July. If 260 million matches are played we will all get some really cool Liberty Strike rewards. Over the coming weekend, it is Party Up 2XP on all game modes so make sure you take full advantage of that.

I am really excited to see what the next community event will be for the game, but I have a feeling Activision may want to keep Call Of Duty WWII quite in the coming months so that all the attention is on Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII.


New Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Zombies Trailer Looks Incredible


New Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Zombies Trailer Looks Incredible!

The folks at Activision and Treyarch have dropped a new trailer for Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Zombies and it looks even more insane that I thought it was already going to be.

This new trailer focusses on two of the three missions that will be released when the game launches this October. IX and Voyage of Despair are showcased really well. Scarlett Rhodes is traveling through time to find out what happened to her father. She along with three other playable characters will need to take down hordes of the undead to stop the evil from spreading and also find out what happened to her dad.

I cannot stress enough how much you need to go and check out the new trailer. For me, the coolest thing by far happens in the IX scenario where there is a zombie tiger! I have seen zombie animals in games before, but they have never looked as scary, imposing and awesome as the zombie tiger in Black Ops 4. Another thing that looks cool in the IX scenario is this huge gladiator, I am assuming this dude is a boss and also that he is a zombie under his helmet.

Voyage of Despair looks like it is going to be quite challenging as I am sure the ship is going to be really tight in some places and if you let the undead get around you that you could be in some pretty big trouble.

Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 zombies is going to be more story driven than in previous years. It is said that it will have a proper tutorial mode, better weapon customization and a kind of horde mode for those who want their classic zombie’s mode. I really do think this new zombies is going to help make up for the lack of a campaign in Black Ops 4.


Zombies World Championship 2 Is Happening This August


Zombies World Championship 2 Is Happening This August

Now here is an eSports championship that I can get behind! Last year Matt “Mcsportzhawk” Cobuzio who is a popular YouTuber was a co-founder of the first Call Of Duty Zombies world championship. It was a fun event that clearly had a lot of love put into it and for a first time event offered an impressive 20 grand prize pool.

Unfortunately, there was a last minute venue change and more than a few technical hiccups showed that this was a first time event. Still, it was fun and thanks to the popularity of Zombies in Call Of Duty we are getting a second event.

This time the event is being held in Orange County California at the eSports Arena. The production behind this year’s event is said to be much better. To be fair though those hiccups last year were probably down to the last minute venue change. As well as a proper eSports venue they also have a big time sponsor, Elgato Gaming. The prize pool has also been bumped up to 30 grand. In all this has all the makings for a really fun and intense event.

Last year all kinds of Zombies records were set so you can bet people will be trying again this year. The finalists will be a mixture of YouTube and Twitch streamers who play against regular joes who are classed as the online finalists. On the 3rd of August, the YouTube and Twitch streamers will play in a kind of semifinal to see who will get to play the online finalist in the finals on the 5th of August.

If you love Zombies this is well worth taking a closer look at. I think this is going to be a lot of fun and not too pretentious like some other eSports events have started to become.


Battlefield V Alpha Feedback


Battlefield V Alpha Feedback

I was not one of the chosen few where were lucky enough to be part of the Battlefield V alpha. Which makes me realize that I really need to pre order it, I have been meaning to do it for ages! Anyway, DICE have posted some pretty interesting feedback in regards to how the Battlefield V alpha went and what fixes they are working on before the beta in September.

The biggest issue that people seemed to have was how the game put them in a group. Some players would arrange to play together but have a hard time doing so or they would play together, but then the next match would have them no longer in a squad. This along with the location of the people they pair you up with is going to be fixed, hopefully in time for the beta.

As far as the actual gameplay goes, DICE did not really say a whole lot in regards to what is going to be worked on. Apparently in game reviews are pretty darn slow and that is something they are aware of and are going to try and fix. Ammo drops are said to be few and far between and this again is something DICE are aware of and are currently fixing.

From the sounds of it as far as an alpha goes it seems like there was not anything horribly wrong and those who were part of the Battlefield V alpha seemed to all have a good time.

Battlefield V is being released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this October. The beta is scheduled for September so keep an eye open for when that will be.


Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Beta News


Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Beta News

We have gotten used to having betas for Call Of Duty during the summer, but Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 is doing things a little differently as it is getting two different kinds of betas.

The first open beta that is taking place will first be available to PlayStation 4 players. This is taking place on the 3rd of August and will last for the whole weekend. The reason that PlayStation owner gets to play the Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 beta first is that there is still that exclusivity best buddies thing going on with Activision and Sony.

Xbox One and PC Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 players will get to take part in the open beta for Black Ops 4 on the 10th of August so it is only a week later. From what we know this beta is going to let players have some fun on two new maps as well as some that they will have already experienced before.

Then at some point in September, PlayStation 4 players are getting the chance to test out the Blackout mode. I have not been able to tell if the Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout mode beta is only going to be available for PlayStation owners or if it will come to Xbox and PC as well.

I am really looking forward to getting the chance to play some Call Of Duty Black Ops 4. This year’s game looks like it is going to be a ton of fun and I am actually already over the fact that there is no campaign.


Thoughts On The Battlefield 5 Campaign


Thoughts On The Battlefield V Campaign

It has been pretty well documented that Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII is ditching the campaign in favor for their new Blackout mode which is their take on Battle Royale. Well the folks at DICE have not forgotten about people who enjoy a single player campaign as Battlefield V will have one.

The Battlefield V campaign has not really released many details in terms of the actual story. What we do know is that it is going to feature “War Stories” which made up the Battlefield 1 campaign. So rather than there being one large story, Battlefield V will feature smaller stories that focus on different characters. I actually like the sound of this as it has been rumored that we will get to experience the war from all sides.

On the flip side of this, I have to say that Sledgehammer Games did a tremendous job with the Call Of Duty WWII campaign. Honestly, I freaking loved it, it was one of the best campaigns that they have done. I felt like I was in a World War II movie that was directed by Steven Spielberg, that is how good it was.

So while Activision is not bothering with a campaign this year, DICE and EA still have a lot to live up to with theirs after what Sledgehammer Games did last year. While I do not think that the Battlefield V campaign will be able to boast the same kind of roller coaster narrative that the Call Of Duty WWII one did. I do think that the way we will be playing as multiple characters from different places and parts of the war could make for a very fun campaign.
