Sledgehammer Games is rolling out a brand new update for Call of Duty: WWII on August 27.
In addition to various fixes and adjustments for Multiplayer, Zombies, and UI, this update also includes a brand new Division and two new Basic Trainings.
While Playstation 4 and Xbox One players will be getting this update on August 27, PC players will have to wait an extra day as their update does not go live until the 28th.
In addition to this, all players will also be able to access the fourth and final WWII DLC pack called ‘Shadow War,’ which will be going live at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET tonight.
Although this update had been teased by SHG last week, no details about any of the new additions were provided until the full Patch Notes were released on Reddit, which can be viewed down below:
We’ll soon be rolling out a title update for PS4 and XB1 (PC will receive the update tomorrow). Below are the notes on the top new features and fixes we’ll be pushing.
NEW Division: COMMANDO – Commandos are versatile, self-sufficient soldiers that excel at capitalizing on an advantage. Equipped with a personal Paratrooper Insert, combatants in this new division can drop into battle from the skies, either landing behind enemy lines or right next to the objective. On top of their ability to get into the action faster than any other division, Commandos boast a variety of benefits that are activated when they perform well. Not only do they regenerate health quicker, but killing an enemy soldier instantly activates health regeneration, allowing the Commando to get into the next fight even sooner. On top of that, multikills and headshots grant additional score as well as ammo. Playing as a Commando can give you the upper hand when fighting a group of enemies, but only if you’re able to keep these abilities active. Finally, Commandos of the highest rank can equip two Basic Trainings at all times. With the flexibility of two Basic Trainings, the ability to take down enemy after enemy without pause, and access to the powerful utility of Paratrooper Insert, Commandos are a force to be reckoned with in any map or mode.
NEW Basic Training: Catalyst – Gain access to a special serum that can be used in battle to increase weapon handling for a short time. The serum regenerates over time, so save it for the most pivotal moments in a match.
NEW Basic Training: Remedy – Health regenerates quicker.
