The “#Call of Duty: WWII” open beta recently ended. The beta version was available on Windows PC to test how the game will perform on the gaming platform where there are many players. According to a report from GameRanx [VIDEO], the “#Call Of Duty: WWII” beta version has been a huge success. So many players participated on testing the game. In fact, the beta version has five times more players than the “#Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” launch last year. The open beta hit a peak of 65,000 players, which is 460% increase in players compared to “Infinite Warfare.”

Will the official game do well?

The “Call of Duty: WWII” beta also outperformed the well-received “Call of Duty: Black Ops III,” which had a peak of 63,000 players way back in the year 2015.

The figures are pretty remarkable because it means that players are very excited to play an “old school” Call of Duty that uses classic weapons. But the impressive performance of the beta version does not mean that the official game will also do well. For example, the game LawBreakers had several players during its open beta, but now it is even struggling to reach 300 concurrent players.

Beta version flooded with cheaters

There is no doubt that the “Call of Duty: WWII” beta version has been a complete success. But some players claim that the game was flooded by cheaters and hackers. According to DVSgaming, some players were using aim-bots on the multiplayer mode to gain an advantage over their opponents. Several fans are worried that cheaters might easily access and manipulate the official game soon.

How will Sledgehammer stop the cheaters?

Sledgehammer Games received the complaints, and the developer makes sure that the official game will be “cheat free.” Sledgehammer might improve the security feature of the game so that players that are using third-party programs will not be allowed to open the game. Some popular Windows PC multiplayer games use VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat System) to disable players from using cheats on the game. Sledgehammer Games might create its own Anti-Cheat System for “Call of Duty: WWII.” The developer might also ban accounts that have been proven to be using bots, cheats, and hacks.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board rated “Call of Duty: WWII" “M" for mature. The ESRB organization claims that the game includes Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, and Strong Language. The developer will officially launch the game on November 3. Players who pre-ordered the game will receive freebies that are usable in the game.
