Aachen Map Will Be Different
Co-founder of Sledgehammer Games Michael has confirmed that in the upcoming PC open beta for Call Of Duty: WWII that there will be changes to the Aachen map. This is due to what feedback they received from the console beta. Many fans had been concerned about the Aachen map design and it appears to look like their voice has been heard.
The Open Beta on the PC incorporates changes based on the feedback and match data we saw during the private Beta earlier this month. One of the more notable set of differences you may notice is the changes we made to the map, Aachen. We love that our fans are so passionate and truly are our best and biggest critics. We received a lot of insightful feedback, which we factored with our own internal data, all for the better. For example, we’ve modified the cross-lane sightlines for a more defined threat zone when approaching from either side of the map. We’ve also adjusted some of the entry and exit pathways to the primary engagement areas to avoid head glitch exploits that we identified during the beta.
It remains to be seen once the PC open beta starts on September 29th if these changes have made an improvement. The beta will run until October 2nd.
