Sledgehammer Games has confirmed that its upcoming title Call of Duty: WWII will feature an era-appropriate version of the Uplink multiplayer mode, a mode which Sledgehammer itself introduced in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Speaking in a recent interview with the U.K. publication The Daily Star, Sledgehammer’s Michael Condrey talked about how the development team behind Call of Duty: WWII wanted to bring back Uplink in some form since the studio has a strong fondness for it:
“We haven’t announced all the modes we’re bringing to the game … we introduced Uplink in Advanced Warfare and we have a lot of heart for that. So we’re looking to make that thematically appropriate for WW2. It’s something we’re still working on. There will be a much broader suite of modes.”
In Advanced Warfare, Uplink took heavy advantage of the game’s futuristic setting and advanced movement mechanics to create an experience that felt like a fast-paced (and deadly) version of capture-the-flag. Making a similar mode for the more historically-placed Call of Duty: WWII won’t be easy, but it sounds like Sledgehammer is up to the challenge.
Call of Duty: WWII will launch for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 3.
