CoD: WWII has been among the most hyped games of the year, and Activision surprised fans everywhere by releasing the beta a day early! With a November release, the CoD: WWII beta represents the first chance in years to play a new boots on the ground Call of Duty experience. The beta for Playstation 4 ends on the 28th of August, and picks back up for Xbox One and PS4 with a second run from September 1st to the 4th.

It's possible that a third (or even a fourth) beta is in the works, but for the time being, the next two weekends are your only chance to get some multiplayer training in before Call Of Duty: WWII releases on November 3rd.

With fewer high-tech options and a focus on the classic style that made Call Of Duty one of the most popular games of all time, it goes without saying that you'll want every advantage you can get. SCUF's custom controllers are equipped with the patented innovations that can give players a real advantage in the trenches of World War II. That's the reason that Scuf Gaming is used by over 90% of all pro gamers.

This weekend's multiplayer beta is already a true proving ground for pro gamers, esports hopefuls, and hardcore gamers of every stripe. SCUF's gaming technology can provide the winning edge that a player needs, whether you're enjoying CoD's campaign, the chaos of multiplayer, or waves of the undead in Zombie mode. Keep your eyes peeled for SCUF's Call Of Duty: WWII game guide, coming soon!

Proud owner of over 100 Granted and Pending Patents

ATLANTA, April 26, 2019Scuf Gaming®innovator and creator of the high-performance gaming controller market, has expanded its global patent portfolio to 62 granted patents and a further 53 additional pending applications, through its patent subsidiary Ironburg Inventions.

One such SCUF innovation is highlighted in the recently granted United States Patent No. 10,188,940, covering a mechanism within the controller case for manual adjustment of trigger range of motion, which had been filed several years before.

SCUF is well known for re-inventing the way gamers use a controller in 4 key areas and has over 100 patents protecting its innovation:

  1. Back Control Functions/ paddles (P1,P2, P3, P4) accessed using your middle fingers

  2. Trigger Control Area – ability to fine tune your triggers for different games

  3. Thumbstick Control Area – ways to change out your thumbstick sizes and shapes

  4. Side Action buttons (S1, S2) – removable side activation points

“It’s amazing to see how the controller market has evolved since we first invented back control functions 9 years ago,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming. “At the time, the middle fingers of the hands went completely unused. It seemed logical to create back paddles to mimic the front buttons, so that the thumbs could reside on thumbsticks. In 2011, only a few hundred people used our features. Today, most core gamers would agree that you can't play modern games without SCUF features.”

In 2015, Scuf Gaming licensed its IP to Microsoft to create the Xbox Elite controller and in 2018, Scuf Gaming licensed parts of its IP to Collective Minds. Scuf Gaming continues to invest millions of dollars into research and development and actively defends its intellectual property to protect its assets and many employees worldwide.

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until the SCUF was invented in 2010; gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity is a safe, ergonomic way. Scuf Gaming also offers features such as adjustable hair triggers, trigger stops, military grade SCUF Grip and optional domed or concave sticks. SCUF Controllers are legally approved for use at most major competitions to include MLG, EGL, WGL, G-finity, Skylan, Reflex, UMG, ESL, etc. When we designed the SCUF, our focus was to reduce unnecessary latency in hand movement and allow experienced gamers to game for longer while using more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way. We believe the paddles and adjustable hair triggers are a great advancement for Console Gaming and are ideal for gamers to display their skill and dexterity and pull off more exciting gameplays which in turn will increase audience interest!” For more information please visit
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been officially announced as the next game in the Call of Duty franchise. Alongside the new title, a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is due to be bundled alongside Infinite Warfare with legacy pre-orders available. Infinite Warfare is being developed by Infinity Ward, the original developers of the game, and looks to take CoD to a literal new level with the announcement trailer showing space combat.

Many fans and pro players prefer the "boots to the ground" style of CoD multiplayer so we are very interested to see more game-play as soon as possible. We are looking forward to seeing how the competitive scene handles the inclusion of the remastered Modern Warfare with possibilities of older games being played competitively has already shown success with titles such as the Halo: the Master Chief Collection.

At the end of the day, we'll always be hyped for a new Call of Duty, and with Infinite Warfare and a Modern Warfare remaster there's a lot to be excited about.
