Call of Duty: WWII's Headquarters Will Have Dynamic Events

The social space won’t be a completely static entity.

As part of a recent cover story interview with Game Informer magazine, Sledgehammer Games has unveiled a series of new details regarding Call of Duty: WWII, including the fact that the game’s Headquarters social space will have occasional dynamic events.

Sledgehammer didn’t get into too much detail about the nature and scope of the dynamic events, but it did give one concrete example of what it has planned: a surprise airborne attack from German forces in which players have to rush over to anti-air cannons and fend off the German planes. This clearly suggests that at least some of the events will involve direct combat and could even function as a sort of pseudo co-op experience in which Headquarters players have to band together against hostile AI forces. Another less dangerous form of dynamic event Sledgehammer is considering could be seasonal events themed around specific holidays.

We’ll find out just how in-depth these dynamic events will be when Call of Duty: WWII launches on November 3.
