Call Of Duty: WW2 To Replace Create-A-Class With Brand New 'Divisions'

Call Of Duty: WW2 To Replace Create-A-Class With Brand New 'Divisions'

Activision have revealed that Call of Duty: WWII will not have a 'create-a-class' system, but a 'Divisions' one instead.

Glen Schofield, co-founder and studio head of Sledgehammer Games, and Michael Condrey, the company's chief operating and development officer, took part in an interview for Playstation where they revealed the new plans.

Twitter's Call of Duty News asked the pair: "What will the create-a-class system be in multiplayer? And will we see never-before-seen perks?"

Condrey replied: "We're days away from E3 2017 [13-15 June 2017] and the team at Sledgehammer Games can hardly wait to share more on our multiplayer plans. We're particularly looking forward to revealing more on Divisions.


"Divisions fundamentally redefines how players invest in their Multiplayer soldier career. Replacing the create-a-class system, players choose from five iconic World War II divisions each with specific basic combat training, division training and weapon skills. We think it'll intrigue Call of Duty series veterans, and we can't wait for our fans to see it for themselves."

So basically it looks like you'll be able to pick a division (perhaps sniper, infantry, etc) and through this your skills and training will be different.

Excitement regarding the new game, which takes CoD back to its roots (rather than into space, the future, or something equally as terrible), has been building for a while.

In a livestream back in late April, Activision lifted the lid on the upcoming title, including details on gameplay and online modes...

Back in 2003, the original Call of Duty was released, starting the entire franchise, and its newest project is a homage to that.

Ahead of the big reveal of Call of Duty: WWII, Activision gave a brief history of its other World War II games, taking a look at the original, as well as Call of Duty: United Offensive, Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World at War.


In between Call of Duty 3 and World at War, the franchise began the Modern Warfare series, which would see a break from WWII, spawning three games and a remaster, before beginning the Black Ops series, which was prologued by World at War.
