During E3, Sledgehammer Games revealed new details for Call of Duty: WWII’s Headquarters, a multiplayer social space where players will be able to hang out with each other in-between matches.
According to Sledgehammer, Headquarters will be much more than simply a space where players can meet up and chat. Up to 48 players will be able to meet in a single Headquarters instance, and once there they’ll be able to partake in a variety of different activities, including:
• A firing range where players can test out all of the game’s multiplayer firearms. When using the firing range, players will also be able to see other players who are using the range.
• A 1v1 “duel pit” in which players can challenge their friends or complete strangers to a 1v1 showdown. The extent to how players will be able to customize this 1v1 experience remains to be seen, but at least those who favor themselves excellent 1v1 players will finally be able to put their money where their mouth is.
In addition to the above details, Sledgehammer also confirmed that Headquarters will be available during Call of Duty: WWII’s upcoming private beta which will be held across two separate weekends in August and September. Call of Duty: WWII itself, meanwhile, will launch on November 3.
