Winter Carentan Map Is Live This Weekend!

The Winter Carentan map is coming to Call Of Duty: WWII in three days, and we can’t wait!

When you spend a lot of your time playing the same maps in multiplayer over and over, the idea of learning the layout of a new locale is always some exciting and challenging fun. CoD: WWII’s Winter Siege event is coming on December 8th, along with this new map variant. With Ranked Play so recently introduced, it’s great to see so many new venues to visit on your way to the top of the ladder!

SCUF will be playing in the Winter Siege this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled for our impressions of how it feels to play!

Call Of Duty: Reassemble!

Everyone has their favorite cluster of squadmates for multiplayer get togethers: it definitely beats sitting around waiting for some random pubbies to join. Activision released a CoD: WWII trailer today that does a brilliant job of recreating the feeling of getting the old team back together for something new and exciting.

Now, while this particular squad seems a little… overpopulated… It’s got everyone at TeamSCUF excited to gather their teammates and decimate the battlefields in Call of Duty: WWII.

November’s right around the corner, and we are pumped.

Activision and Sledgehammer’s “Brotherhood Of Heroes” Released

Bringing their “Weekend Of Intel” to a close, Activision and Sledgehammer released their mini-documentary, “Brotherhood Of Heroes”: a touching tribute to the real men and women who risked their lives during the second World War to prevent Nazi tyranny the world over, and how to create a story based around such an important moment in history.

Much of the video is narrated by Martin K.A. Morgan, a World War II historian and scholar, who was instrumental in bringing the right level of honor and respect to a story that takes place during one of the most trying times in world history. “Brotherhood Of Heroes” takes you through some of the most important places and times during WWII, and shows you how the game will translate those moments.

“This isn’t a fictional war,” says Sledgehammer’s Art Director Joe Salud, “So it’s really important that we communicate to the player to have a strong understanding of what happened and what the time was like.”

CoD:WWII “Meet The Squad” Videos Continue With Rousseau & Crowley

Continuing Activision and Sledgehammer’s “Week Of Intel”, the official Call of Duty YouTube channel released two more fascinating characters in their “Meet The Squad” series. And after four American soldiers, today’s update takes on a decidedly more European flavor.

The first is the mysterious Rousseau, a French resistance fighter who has found herself in the center of the fight looking to save her family. The second is British Secret Service officer Major Arthur Crowley, an expert on sabotage and deception. It isn’t clear yet how deep of a relationship we’re going to have with these new-introduced characters during CoD’s single-player campaign, but it’s obvious that CoD:WWII has a brilliant cast thus far. Perhaps we’ll get to learn about some of the villains this week?

The CoD PC beta begins next week, and while it probably won’t show us much about the campaign’s cast, we can’t wait to get back into the fight.

Activision Releases 4 Call Of Duty: WWII “Meet The Squad” Videos

Over the years, it’s been impossible to avoid falling in love with the characters that we meet in every Call of Duty single-player campaign, and thanks to four videos released today, it’s obvious that CoD: WWII won’t be any different.Call of Duty’s official YouTube channel released four short videos today. They’re entitled “Meet The Squad”, and each one of them focuses on a different American soldier that will help tell the story of November’s highly-anticipated World War II epic.

Each of the characters looks terrific, from the inspiring leader we see in Lieutenant Joseph Turner, to the grizzled veteran Sergeant William Pierson. But if we had to choose a favorite, it would have to be the young heroics of Private Robert Zussman and the spirit of the game’s protagonist: Private Red Daniels. Each of these characters looks great: we can’t wait to get our hands on them in November.

Watch The Call Of Duty: WWII Campaign Trailer

The CoD: WWII Campaign Trailer is here and it is intense.

Released today, Activision and Sledgehammer have put together some of the best-looking (and most nail-biting) moments we’ve seen in a Call of Duty game to date. And with fans clamoring for a more gritty, realistic, and boots on the ground game, it’s clear that they’re getting what they’ve been looking for.

The official Call of Duty YouTube channel introduced us to our new protagonist and single-player game experience with this:

Call of Duty®: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany. The journey begins on November 3.”

CoD’s single-player campaigns have always had great writing and huge, show stopping moments, but this one looks to be their best one yet.

The Call Of Duty: WWII PC Beta Has Been Announced!

qslsn7dl1nmjvlidmlc6

After months of speculation, Activision and Sledgehammer announced today that the multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: WWII’s PC port will begin on September 29th, and run through the weekend, ending on October 2nd. Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One betas, CoD’s PC will not require a pre-order to access it.

Sledgehammer Games has been taking all of the feedback they’ve received from the console betas and applying it to the finished product in November, so we can only guess what thoughts PC gamers will have for the biggest FPS of the year.

“We’re…thankful for the open and constructive dialogue throughout the course of the Beta,” a representative at Sledgehammer posted today. “It meant a lot to every developer who was actively reading comments on Reddit and our social channels. And best of all, it was great to finally be able to play Call of Duty: WWII with the community.”

It sounds like Sledgehammer is having as much fun with CoD as we are. November 3rd can’t get here fast enough!

Since its inception, SCUF has been a key part of the Call of Duty (COD) ecosystem, from professional players and teams, to leagues and enthusiasts. By inventing and patenting new technology and functionality (over 30 granted patents), SCUF controllers enable players to utilize more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way, while potentially increasing performance.

Lots of DLC and Toy Cars in Today’s SCUF Gaming News!

This week in gaming news, we look to the future, and the various additions, expansions, and products coming up from some of the world’s most popular games and developers.

Bethesda announce expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online

Fans of the Elder Scrolls series will soon be able to revisit some familiar locations in Bethesda’s MMO, with the studio announcing that Morrowind will be the game’s next expansion.

Venturing to the location of The Elder Scrolls III, players will be able to return to many of the “key points of interest” of the original game.

Along with the ability to journey into Morrowind itself, the expansion will include a new, nature-based magic class, the Warden, and a new War Bear combat ally, as demonstrated in the fantastic new cinematic trailer.

Sabotage DLC released for Infinite Warfare

The first downloadable content pack for this year’s iteration of Call of Duty is now available on PlayStation 4.

The pack contains four new multiplayer maps, including ‘Dominion’: a remake of the map ‘Afghan’ from Infinity Ward’s much-loved Modern Warfare 2. Meanwhile, Zombies players will have access to the next chapter in the Zombies in Spaceland story, ‘Rave in the Redwoods’

With PlayStation 4 players enjoying the map pack exclusively for thirty days, other platforms will have to wait until the start of March to experience much more than the trailer.

BioWare releasing new IP before March 2018

The creators of the epic Mass Effect series have revealed that, in little over a year’s time, they’ll be bringing out a brand new game.

As the studio puts the finishing touches on Mass Effect: Andromeda, it seems they’ve already got an eye on what’s next. At EA’s recent investor meeting, CEO Andrew Wilson said that BioWare would be focusing on “A clean-sheet design with new concepts, new gameplay mechanics, and new stories set in a unique new universe.”

The ideas behind the new game apparently began development in 2012, but the studio has since been working on the aforementioned addition to the Mass Effect series. They believe the new game has “the potential to fundamentally disrupt the way people think about an action title”.

Titanfall 2 Live Fire DLC on the horizon

In more FPS downloadable content news, Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 is also due some DLC later this month. The Live Fire DLC will not only be introducing new maps, however, but also a frenetic new game mode.

Live Fire mode will be a fast-paced, round-based, pilot only mode, to be played six versus six. Each round will be just sixty seconds long, and per round each player will have only a single life. The objective is fairly simple – kill all of the enemies, or end the round holding the initially neutral flag.

On the basis of the recent gameplay trailer, the mode looks fast and exciting. Along with the new mode, Respawn are releasing two maps designed for Live Fire, a map for the Coliseum game mode and a remake of Colony, a map from the original Titanfall – and they’re giving it all for free.

Psyonix reveal Rocket League toy cars

The developers of Rocket League have announced that the vehicles of their hit game are to be immortalised in physical toys.

The miniature cars will be off the variety that are cranked up by being pulled back across the floor before being let loose. Twelve are to be released this spring, with each also coming with a miniature Rocket Ball.

For those that prefer to remain in the digital realm, there’s still an incentive to go and pick up a couple of the toy cars – some will also contain a code for a unique Rocket Trail and Wheel within the game.
