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? 

 

 

Drivers

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.

AMD used to be great with COD games. The last title saw Fury X easily beating 980Ti.

I'm not sure how I feel about this game. At times it gets me excited to reminisce and go back to my early days of PC video gaming by trying to complete the first Call of Duty on Veteran difficulty, but the same issues that were present 10-15 years ago are still present now. Call of Duty as a franchise has aged poorly in my opinion. While it performs well, the graphics don't look very impressive to me. The story seems overly macho. It just feels so phoned in and fake.Quote

Going to get this but not yet. My gaming partner and I played through BLOPS III in co op, and even though the story made no sense and it was terrible it was still lots of fun because of the co op. I have just bought us Infinite Warfare and when we are done with that we are getting this also.

Props to AV for keeping Co Op a part of their games. Very important, IMO.Quote

Note that the Single player doesn't support co-op. only the zombie mode does.Quote

He means WWII, the campaign is single-player only, though online co-op is still available in Zombies mode (not sure if it has split-screen on PC...).Quote
