New Call of Duty: WWII Update Released; Fixes Headquarters Updates and More

A brand new Call of Duty: WWII patch has been released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it finally fixes Headquarters.

on November 29, 2017 4:22 PM

After what can only be described as an incredibly messy multiplayer launch, developer Sledgehammer Games has officially released a brand new patch for the kid, in what will hopefully be one of the last patches for a while.

First and foremost, every player’s Headquarters finally be fully populated. While the social space was full of players in the first couple hours of launch, it was quickly made a single-player only experience in order to help take the strain off the game’s servers. About a week ago, Sledgehammer Games confirmed that certain players would be able to join populated Headquarters again, that was quickly taken offline as well. Hopefully, this kind of repetition won’t happen again. Also, players can now access the social space by clicking on a new icon in the game’s menu.

In addition to that, a number of other bugs were fixed, including out of map exploits on certain maps, black screens, and more.

The update should be available right now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while PC players will have to wait until a later date. Call of Duty: WWII was officially released on November 3, 2017, and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. You can check out the full list of patch notes below:
