Call of Duty: WWII PC beta is here and Steam users hate it

It's time for PC players to test the multiplayer in Call of Duty: WWII as the open beta has gone live. So far, however, Steam users are mostly disappointed with the game.

PC players can now check out how Call of Duty: WWII works on their preferred platform. The PC open beta is currently live on Steam and it is going to run through October 2. During that time you can play on four maps: Gibraltar, Aachen, Pointe Du Hoc and Ardennes, in several multiplayer modes, starting with the classic Team Deathmatch through Domination, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed to War Mode. You can also see how the new character progression system, dubbed Divisions, works.

However, Steam players donít seem to be happy with how Call of Duty: WWII runs on PC. The gameís open beta has currently mostly negative reviews (only 30% of almost 7,000 are positive), many of which point out poor optimization and bumpy performance. Others are appalled with the gameís free approach to historical accuracy (some ridiculous things they name are red dot sights on WWII rifles, or black female soldiers in Wehrmacht), or they are simply bored with dealing with another CoD that brings about so few changes when compared with previous installments. Of course you are more than welcome to check Call of Duty: WWII out for ourself while itís still in open beta. The full version arrives on November 3, 2017.
