Soon enough, players all over the world will be able to get a taste of the Call of Duty WWII multiplayer experience through the private beta, but there's still a lot we don't know about it. A few hours ago, Sledgehammer Games' Michael Condrey revealed some additional details on it, showing how the team is trying to be as accurate to the setting as possible.
Answering some fans' questions on the Call of Duty WWII subreddit, Michael Condrey confirmed that the multiplayer portion of the game will feature a variety of playable nations, as seen in the recent beta trailer.
Yes. WWII was a global conflict with multinational forces on both sides. We're focused on the european theater, with a diverse ensemble cast of playable MP nations.
Additionally, it will not be possible to mix together Allied and Axis nations on the same squad in multiplayer.
Yes, Allied always plays with Allied. Axis only with Axis. You'll never have a mashup of Allied and Axis on the same squad.
Yesterday, Sledgehammer Games provided an overview of the upcoming Call of Duty WWII private beta, revealed what players should expect to experience.
