Call of Duty WWII gridiron

Call of Duty: WWII is nearing its November 4 release, but that doesn’t mean we have to sit on our hands and wait for the game to release! Charlie Intel has some new… intel on the latest title of the Call of Duty franchise, including some information on the Gridiron mode and the newly unveiled London map. Michael Condrey, Co-Studio Head of Sledgehammer Games, also has a few statements on some recent events involving WWII.

First though, a quick primer on the Gridiron mode. Gridiron is set to be a modified version of the Uplink mode from Infinite Warfare, which is a lot like basketball, with drones. Gridiron will be a “boots on the ground take” of the Uplink mode; there won’t be drones this time around, understandably.

Now, via Charlie Intel, Michael Condrey has a bit more to say about Gridiron and the new London multiplayer map:

“We are super proud of the game and cannot wait to play it with the community, so please hang on for a bit as November 3rd is almost here. In the meantime, here’s a first look at our London map in multiplayer. It’s a studio favorite for domination, hardpoint, and TDM, and we think it could be a standout for the competitive season ahead.  Also, it’s a lot of fun for the new Gridiron game mode coming at launch, here’s a taste.”

The above picture is a shot of the Gridiron mode, and below we have the first glimpse of the London map:

Also, Condrey has a statement about the beta leaks happening with the PC version of WWII:

“Call of Duty: WWII has been in development for nearly three years, and we’re now less than a month before launch. We can’t wait for fans to experience it on November 3rd.  With Betas, there’s always the risk that some people will try and spoil that experience for others. We have had a couple things leak recently across multiplayer and zombies. It’s disappointing for everyone involved in creating the game. But, in the spirit of transparency, we want to be up front about it. Some of the details were inaccurate, early, or still subject to change. Others we would consider spoilers. We never plan for leaks, but we also understand that it’s hard for fans not to read the news when it’s about something they are so excited to learn more about.”

Call of Duty: WWII will release November 3 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
