Xbox One news: Call of Duty WW2, Games with Gold and Battlefront 2
As leaks go, this latest one concerning Call of Duty WW2 is probably the least damaging.
The release date of the Call of Duty 2017 title looks to have been revealed, although it’s unlikely going to shock anyone.
A new image has been posted online of an alleged promotional poster for Call of Duty: WW2.
If the promotional poster is to be believed, then the Call of Duty WW2 release date has been set for November 3. With November 3 falling on a Friday, the release date is plausible, especially based on previous Call of Duty games.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launched on Friday, November 4, while Black Ops 3 made its debut on Friday, November 6. According to the poster, DLC will be released on PS4 30 days before other platforms.
Call of Duty 2017 cover art and promotional material was recently leaked ahead of the full reveal, while a follow up report claimed that Call of Duty: WWII would be the full name of the new PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter.
But while nothing has been confirmed by Call of Duty 2017 developer Sledgehammer Games, studio co-founder Michael Condrey has said that there are lots of surprises in store for fans.
Condrey made the claim on Twitter, telling Ali-A that he was looking forward to the year.
Every month, Microsoft offer two new Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles to download for free via the Games with Gold program. The tech giant usually splits them up, offering them so that they go live at different times.
And Games with Gold April 2017 is no different with fans now able to download this month’s next chosen titles.
Ryse: Son of Rome will remain available to download for the full month of April, while Evolve: Ultimate Edition has now been switched out. The Walking Dead: Season 2 has now replaced it, officially going live on April 16 for Xbox One fans.
It’s the same situation with Darksiders, which has been available for the past 15 days. It was replaced earlier today with Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
