Call of Duty: WWII PC Performance Review

Call of Duty: WWII PC Performance Review

Introduction 

The Call of Duty series is easily one of the most recognisable brand names in all of video games, with the series remaining popular over the past decade with yearly iterations on the series formula. 

In recent year the series has started to wain in popularity, especially on the PC platform where other competitive shooters are widely available, with Call of Duty: WWII being set to regain the series some of it’s lost momentum by moving back the series to its WWII roots with a greater focus on the game’s campaign while also delivering the game’s popular online component and Nazi Zombied modes.

On this PC, Call of Duty: WWII has been worked on by both Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, lacking support for modern APIs like Vulkan and DirectX 12 and making use of commonly used DirectX 11 standard. The game is available as two separate downloads, separating the game’s online and offline components to allow players to simply uninstall unused parts to save storage space. 

The question that we will be answering today is how well Call of Duty: WWII plays on modern PC hardware. Will older PCs be able to cope with this Activision’s latest COD title, or will this game require the use of a high-end gaming PC?

As always, we will be using the most recent drivers from AMD and Nvidia at the time of release. This means that we will be testing this game with AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.11.1 Driver and Nvidia’s Geforce 388.13 driver.
