Official Call of Duty®: WWII – Pointe Du Hoc Multiplayer Map Flythrough
The trailer shows games getting special 4K builds for Xbox one X, as revealed during Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2017 presentation. These are:
- Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
- Forza 7
- State of Decay 2
- Crackdown 3
- Assassin’s Creed Origins
- Metro Exodus
- Killing Floor 2
- Need for Speed Payback
- Sea of Thieves
- Madden NFL 18
- Super Luckey’s Tale
- Ori and the Will of the Wisps
- gears of War 4
- Forza Horizon 3
- Killer Instinct
- Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
- For Honor
- Ghost Recon Wildlands
- Titanfall 2
- Farming Simulator 17
- The Surge
- World of Tanks
- We Happy Few
- Ark Survival Evolved
- Rocket League
- Slime Rancher
Lets start with Divisions, which is replacing the create-a-class feature. Each Division will have its own unique play-style and weapons. Further, divisions will be customizable with the ability to swap out guns and equipment. One notable change is the absence of perks within each division.
Just like how the player has the ability to change classes mid-game in current Call of Duty’s, players will have the option to the change their Division mid-game as well. Players are able to choose among the following Divisions: Airbourne, Armored, Mountain, Expedition or Infantry.
Airbourne is centered around a run-and-gun play style, Armored will be focused on a more aggressive play style, Mountain is where snipers will want to be, the Expedition is all about close-quarters combat, and Infantry will be the home to rifles and mid-range combat.
Next we have Headquarters, which is the new social space within Call of Duty: WWII’s multiplayer mode. In this space, which has a cap of 48 people, players will be able to interact with each other in various ways. Sledgehammer Games said this mode evolved from the interactive lobbies featured in its last game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The full list of features within this mode have not been revealed, but the developer did say that players can challenge others in 1v1 matches, as well as compete for a high score in a firing range.
Finally we have War. Success in this game mode hinges entirely on teamwork. During each match, players will have to either defend or attack certain objectives (for instance, a tank). It was also revealed that War will feature maps that can only be played in that specific mode, so don’t expect to see normal Team Deathmatch, or Domination maps within War.
Sledgehammer also revealed the dates for the game’s beta. You can check out the full schedule below:
- Starts: August 25th, 2017
- Ends: August 28th, 2017
- Starts: September 1st, 2017
- Ends: September 4th, 2017
Sledgehammer Games also commented on the inclusion of Nazi symbolism in the game. After a long discussion, the developer said it had decided to include the symbolism in the campaign in an effort to make it as historically accurate as possible, but that it won’t be showing up in the game’s multiplayer or zombie modes. During the livestream, Michael Condrey had this to say about the issue:
It’s something we really wrestled with. You know there is this responsibility to balance what really happened in an authentic way, but, you know, we really need to be respectful for the victims in this very dark time in human history. This was a massive war, a global conflict. 100,000,000 people perished in this. So, ultimately we decided that Nazi symbols like the swastika had a place in our campaign, to be historically accurate…But in our multiplayer and zombies, this a global community, this a global community where the experience is visceral and intense, and we didn’t feel like it was appropriate there. It’s a dark symbol, and we have to be really respectful and mindful of the customs and regulations of different territories, and we wanted the whole community to play together…
The developer also confirmed that the next Making of Call of Duty livestream will feature and inside look at the game’s Zombie mode. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown when exactly that livestream will occur.
Yesterday during Sony Interactive Entertainment’s E3 press conference, Activision revealed a brand new multiplayer trailer for the game.
Call of Duty: WWII will hit store shelves on November 3rd, 2017, and will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Destiny has never looked this good.
This video from Arekkz shows Destiny 2 at its best. The E3 demo consists of the mission ‘Homecoming’, the opening mission of Destiny 2, which attendees are able to play through as the ‘Dawnblade‘ class.
The video is actually of his friend TwoSixNine playing, but Arekkz provides commentary over the top. He says that he would like to see some more work done on the game’s mouse sensitivity, but otherwise feels that it is a fantastic fit for PC.
This is a long, uninterrupted run of Destiny 2 running with the settings turned right up, so it’s a good look at what a powerful rig will let you do. A copy of Destiny 2 is available when you purchase a GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti graphics card for a limited time, which might be worth jumping on.
The console versions still look great, although it’s worth noting that they’ll only run at 30FPS, even on Xbox One X. Destiny 2 launches out September 6 for PS4, and Xbox One, and on October 24 for PC.
Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
The images shows various aspects of the game, including gear, environments, strikes, narration and PvP, and they look rather great.
While most of the screenshots are in shiny 1080p, those showcasing the environments are even shinier, with ultra-high resolution perfect for your desktop.
You can check them all out in the gallery below. If you want to see more from the reveal, you can check out the official gameplay trailer, a new story trailer, a developer diary focused on features, one on the planets and the spectacular first mission of the game.
Destiny 2 will be released on September 8th for PS4 and Xbox One. A PC version has also been announced, but no specific release date has been confirmed yet.
More specifically, explanations came from writer Luke Smith and project lead Mark Noseworthy. According, to Smith, the PS4 Pro is “super powerful,” but not powerful enough to run Destiny 2 at 60 FPS. The reason? Well, according to Smith, the game’s “rich physics simulation where collision of players, networking, etc,” were and are the issue. That and CPU. Noseworthy adds:
“But there’s tons of GPU power in the PS4 Pro. That’s why we’re doing 4K, right? It’s on the CPU side. Destiny’s simulation, like we have more AI, more monsters in an environment with physically simulated vehicles and characters and projectiles, and it’s part of the Destiny magic, like that, like 30 seconds of fun, like coming around a corner and throwing a grenade, popping a guy in the head, and then you add like 5, 6, 7 other players in a public event; that is incredibly intensive for hardware.”
Destiny 2 is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and is slated to launch on September 8th on the aforementioned platforms. The latter, the PC, is currently without a release date, and it appears it may not launch simultaneously alongside the console versions.
As you may know, a slab of Destiny 2 news arrived yesterday, including new gameplay details, a new story trailer, word of PC Battle.net exclusivity, and more. You can read all of our coverage of it here.
Source: IGN via NeoGAF
Destiny 2’s first official trailer – as opposed to the teasers we’ve sen so far – is here. Bungie debuted it during the Destiny 2 livestream event today.
The trailer was posted by IGN. We’ll replace it with the official version when it’s released.
As well as this cinematic trailer, you might want to take a look at the first Destiny 2 gameplay footage. We came to love Destiny’s patchy storytelling and characters, but we’re all here for the shooting, right? Of course we are. It is rad to see the whole Light-addicted-zombie angle coming to the forefront, though.
Destiny 2 releases September 8 on PS4 and Xbox One, but the PC version of Destiny 2 has not been dated.
Today’s reveal event yielded stacks of new information about the sci-fi, shared worlds shooter. As suspected, you’ll lose all your powers and have to progress new subclasses in Destiny 2. Destiny 2 PvP’s going to be pretty different. There’s going to be better matchmaking for PvE Destiny 2 content, and – oh, so much more. Take a look through the Destiny 2 tag for now, while we get a hub page sorted out.
It’s gonna be all go on Destiny 2 until September. Hold onto your butts.
Destiny 2 certainly has a plot and whatever and I’m sure we’ll all care about it very much, but let’s be real – most of playing Destiny is collecting guns, arguing about guns, and using guns.
Since we’re going to lose our whole arsenal when we migrate to Destiny 2, we’re naturally very interested in what will replace them. The first Destiny 2 gameplay footage certainly went out of its way to show us a lot of guns, but of course we don’t yet have details on what we were seeing.
So let’s look elsewhere for news on Destiny 2’s guns. For starters, if you scroll down the official Destiny website you’ll find a section on weapons with nine boomsticks on display; the images are reproduced below.
These nine weapons are divided into three types – “kinetic”, “energy” and “power”. This replaces the old primary, secondary and heavy distinction from the first Destiny.
Most of the weapons you’d think of as primary types – assault rifles, hand cannons – can be either kinetic or energy types, which means you can equip them in either of those slots (your dreams of double hand cannons have come true at last). The weapon in the energy slot gains an elemental bonus.
Classic secondary and heavy weapons are now “power” types. Bungie hasn’t said much more about all this, so stay tuned for updates on Destiny 2’s three weapon types.
If you look closely at the images, you might see the logo of a new manufacturer – Veist. Destiny 2 lead Mark noseworthy confirmed this new company joins returning manufacturers Hakke, Omolon, Suros and Tex Mechanica.

And now Veist joins the family of Destiny weapon foundries.

That’s all we were able to glean from the assets, unfortunately; Bungie has wised up and stopped putting useful snippets of intel in the filenames. Curses! That said, we have had hints that weapons will get a shakeup – there seems to be a new SMG weapons class in Destiny 2, for example.
Matt and Arekkz were at the reveal and their previews should be coming online soon, so hopefully we’ll get some answers to our questions about Destiny 2. Not just about guns, mind. But quite a few about guns, hopefully.
Destiny 2 releases in September for PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version of Destiny 2 as yet undated.
You can expect a fair bit of good old Destiny247 from here on, cats. We know what we like.
Destiny 2 is going to start us out from scratch without the powers of the Light we’ve accumulated in the first game, but that’s actually good news, because it’ll give us all a chance to rediscover the existing subclasses.
And yes, they’ve changed. As well as introducing new subclasses with Destiny 2, Bungie has overhauled exisiting ones. Arekkz will be going through each of the existing and new subclasses to drill down on their associated skills and abilities in detail, starting with the Gunslinger – the very first class baby hunters were exposed to in the first Destiny.
As you’ll see in the video, the way the skill tree is arranged has changed for Destiny 2. You’ll now find skills grouped by type – grenade, class ability, jump, and two passive trees – in this case Way of the Outlaw or one we don’t know the name of yet, which include all the buffs and synergies for other powers.
The class ability bit is new in Destiny 2. In the case of the Hunter Gunslinger, it’s a dodge – but it’s not clear whether this is true of all Hunter subclasses or just the Gunslinger. If it is across all subclasses, this acts as a further differentiator between the tree classes, beyond the super, grenade and jump differences that will carry over. We’ll have an update on that as soon as possible.
It’s not yet clear whether you’ll be able to pick and choose between the two available passive trees, or have to commit to one or the other in full. The latter seems unlikely as it would mean character builds are less flexible in Destiny 2 than the first game.
Here are the skill nodes available for the Hunter’s (first?) Solar subclass, the Gunslinger, in Destiny 2. Most of them will be familiar to Destiny veterans.
Super: Golden Gun
- Press L1+R1 to summon a flaming pistol that disintegrates enemies with Solar Light.
- Incendiary grenade:
An explosive grenade that catches enemies on fire, causing additional damage over time.
- Swarm Grenade
A grenade that detonates on impact, releasing multiple drones that seek nearby enemies.
- Tripmine Grenade
An explosive grenade that sticks to surfaces and and detonates when enemies pass through its laser trigger.
Class ability: dodge
- Marksman Dodge
Automatically reload your equipped weapon while dodging
- Gambler’s Dodge
Dodging near enemies generates Melee energy
- High Jump
Upgrades Double Jump with even greater height.
- Strafe Jump
Upgrades Double Jump with better directional control while in the air.
- Triple Jump
Upgrades Double Jump with a third jump.
Way of the Outlaw – passive tree
- Chains of Woe
Precision kills increase reload speed for you and nearby allies.
- Bombs for Bullseyes
Precision hits generate grenade energy.
Golden Gun can be fired up to six times but has a shorter duration.
- Explosive Knife
Throw a knife at enemies that explodes shortly after impact when melee energy is full.
Passive tree 2
Throw a knife at enemies when melee energy is full. A precision kill with this ability instantly recharges it.
- Gunslinger’s Trance
Enter a trance with each precision kill, reducing the cooldown of your Golden Gun.
Precision hits with your Golden Gun generate Orbs of Light for your allies.
- Line ‘Em Up
Precision hits with Golden Gun increase its damage and extend its duration.
And it will come. Oh yes. It’s all-in now, cats.
There are too many things people at the Destiny 2 reveal have been talking about, but one of the loudest conversations pertains to the game’s frame-rate on console vs. PC.
Destiny 2 will be the first game in the franchise to come to PC, but Bungie wants to get it right the first time. The build demoed at the event ran at 4K, 60 fps. It turns out, Destiny 2 can do so much more.
Speaking to PC Gamer, PC lead at Bungie David Shaw confirmed that Destiny 2’s frame-rate will be uncapped, meaning it can go well beyond 60 fps, if your PC can do it.
“[sic]… if you want to play at 144 [fps] and your rig will handle it, it’ll do that just fine,” he said, confirming that the PC build at the reveal was only running at 60 fps because of the monitors it was demoed on. Acer provided their latest XB271HK monitors to all PCs at the event. This impressive model has a native resolution of 4K, and supports G-Sync.
However, the monitor only goes up to 60 fps, hence why all reports from the show talked about the game hitting 60 fps. Now that we know Destiny 2 can go as high as 144 fps, the ultra-high frame-rate could be a lot more doable on 1080p and 1440p.
Shaw also confirmed that the console versions all run at 30 fps. PS4 Pro is what was used to demo the game, so we know that all available consoles will be locked to 30 fps. There’s been no talk about Xbox Scorpio yet, so it’s unclear whether we’ll be seeing an unlocked version of the game there.
Destiny 2 is out September 8 on PS4, and Xbox One. Bungie could not provide a release date for the PC version, beyond “soon.”
Bungie officially unveiled the three new subclasses Destiny 2 will bring to the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock classes we know from the first game. These are the Sentinel, Arcstrider, and Dawnblade respectively.
Not much is known about the Arcstrider, and the Sentinel just yet, but the build of the game everyone got to play at Destiny 2’s reveal event did show off the Warlock’s new Dawnblade subclass. Dawnblade will be the new Solar subclass, replacing the Sunsinger.
In his video above, Alex shows off the full skill tree for the Dawnblade, as well as the new Super move. If you missed it, he did similar videos for the upgraded Titan Striker, and Hunter Gunslinger.
The skill page’s layout is the same, with your Super icon in the middle, and everything else taking shape around it. Your grenade options occupy the top, and the different jumps the bottom. You have your two passive skill trees with four nodes each. This is where things get granular.
- Press R1+L1 to weave Solar Light into blades and smite your foes from the skies
- Solar Grenade:
A grenade that creates a flare of Solar Light which continually damages enemies trapped inside
- Firebolt Grenade:
A grenade that unleashes bolts of Solar Light at nearby enemies
- Fusion Grenade:
An explosive grenade that causes bonus damage when attached to its target
Class ability: Rifts

Passive skill tree 1
- Phoenix Dive:

- Blazing Dash:
Dodge in mid-air
In the video from Arekkz above, the three Exotics available during his hands-on with Destiny 2 in Los Angeles were the Hand Cannon Sunshot, Sweet Business which is an Auto Rifle, and the SMG Riskrunner. We were given a look at the latter back in May when the weapon popped up in some promotional art and Matt said he had a rather good time using the weapon during his hands-on.
The Sunshot used by the Hunter is a hand cannon that deals 200 attack damage, can shoot 150 rounds per minute. It’s Perks are Sunburn which produces explosive rounds which highlight targets, and Sunshot which makes enemies explode in Solar Energy.
Anything else you want to know about the game? Then you should check out our Destiny 2 guide hub page. It’s all there, and will be updated continuously.
Sweet Business is the Exotic Auto-Rife carried by the Titan class. It deals 200 damage and can 360 rounds per minute. It’s Perk Payday increases hip fire accuracy and a large mag. The other perk title isn’t listed, as it just shows a placeholder icon, but when holding down the trigger, this will boost the weapon’s range and rate of fire. Plus, it automatically loads ammo pickups into the magazine.
Finally, the Warlock’s Riskrunner, as stated above, is an SMG which doles out 200 damage at 750 rounds per minute. The Arc Conductor perk makes it so taking Arc Damage increases the weapon’s power. When Arc Conductor is active, the other perk will provide a chance for shots fired to become chain lighting and return ammo. It doesn’t have the best ranged, but up close, it rips through enemies like butter, or some other soft food.
Kinetic, Energy, and Power are your new weapon slots. Kinetic weapons use bullets, Energy shoots, well, energy, and your Power weapons are fusion and sniper rifles, grenade launchers, shotguns and the like. We’ll find out more on these weapons as time progresses.
Destiny 2 is set to release on September 8 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC release date has not been determined.
So many games struggle to get the crunch and weight of combat right. I want to feel threatened, I want to triumph through gritted teeth. Destiny 2 has that.
I have a new favourite gun in Destiny. That makes me happy. The Riskrunner submachine gun spits bullets with a little upwards recoil. It’s easy to compensate for, and most importantly, enemy heads pop off when the lead makes contact. I took down a couple of new enemy types like the Gladiator despite their bulk and intimidating, relentless stomp towards me. It feels good to be back.
To say Destiny 2 is more of what made the original so good is disingenuous but there’s a lot here that’s feels so familiar in all the right ways. The Dawnblade subclass for the Warlock has an active Super that completely destroys anything in its path and provides precious seconds of domination. You know once it’s gone you’ll be back to strategically flipping through your arsenal and picking off enemies, slowly building your Super back up as you dodge and sprint, taking cover from assaults, hoovering up ammo and surging forward with the sights up.
I loved every second of Destiny 2 so far mainly because it’s still got that shit-hot feeling of deadly gunplay. It sounds simple, but so many games struggle to get the crunch and weight of combat right. I want to feel threatened, I want to triumph through gritted teeth. Destiny 2 has that.
The campaign mission Homecoming that you will have seen from this week’s reveal is a slick mix of old and new. I’m happy to return to The Tower even though it’s been torn apart by a devastating attack, defending your old stomping ground as the Red Legion continues its relentless push. Seconds later you’re seeing new parts of the city previously hidden tantalisingly close but always locked away. Minutes after that and you’re running across a speeding battleship as its cannons boom, wind and rain spatter against your face and rockets rain down on your position. Keep moving, keep pushing forward, keep firing. Oh, by the way, it looks beautiful on PC and pretty tasty on PS4 Pro too.
New weapon classes – kinetic, energy and power – should provide some interesting loadouts and hopefully a little less frustration, so you can wield two hand cannons if that’s your jam. Energy weapons are designed for enemies with shields and other Guardians using their Super, and I could feel a difference between those and your standard kinetic weapons.
Those new submachine guns are welcome for the pure speed at which they fire and quickly became a favourite for me. The grenade launcher humbles any Guardian who goes up against it.
The Inverted Spire Strike also felt familiar, as you dance between complete failure and glorious victory. Playing with two strangers wasn’t a problem because the rules are the same as they ever were – you work as a team, rez downed Guardians, concentrate fire on the adds and slowly chip away at the boss.
This particular Strike threw in a floor that either burnt us or disappeared completely to keep us on our toes but we pretty much nailed it within 20 minutes with only one restart.
New PvP mode Countdown perhaps wasn’t the best way to demonstrate the all-new focus on 4 versus 4, with rounds only taking a few minutes at most. Players either defend or plant bombs and it’s unforgiving for those that aren’t co-ordinating. My team got completely torn apart in almost every round. I was never a big PvP fan in Destiny and Countdown hasn’t done much to change my mind.
I dropped out of Destiny shortly after Rise of Iron but picking up Destiny 2 today it all came back. I’m ready to get obsessive all over again.
We can’t judge the game too deeply at this point and there’s a lot of questions that will only really become clear once we’re all hours into Destiny 2. It’s certainly addressing some of the major problems with the original game, from clans to what to do with the end game.
Adventures – 15 minutes side missions with loot rewards – should liven up the drab Patrols of old, and Lost Sectors are designed purely for those that like to root around behind every rock. Again, loot and enemies are your rewards for curiosity. It’s a shame we didn’t get to try those today, but they might prove to be an interesting addition if Bungie treats them like as part of its weekly reset.
Bungie has done a great job with its first big reveal for Destiny 2. The hype on the show floor in LA today was real, the crowd air punching and freaking out to the point of parody. But there were also no complaints about what’s been shown far – a tease of a what looks like a delicious campaign, the teamwork and comradeship of a Strike and an unforgiving multiplayer game. I dropped out of Destiny shortly after Rise of Iron but picking up Destiny 2 today it all came rushing back. I’m ready to get obsessive about Destiny all over again.
