Call of Duty: WWII receives a 10GB update, available tomorrow on PC, release notes unveiled

Sledgehammer Games has prepared a massive new update for Call of Duty: WWII. This update is 10GB in size and features a new Division, new Basic Training, packs some multiplayer fixes and brings various UI improvements. In addition, this latest patch adds new Orders and Contracts and brings Shovel Melee Weapon Variants in Zombies mode.

Going into more details, the new Division that will be added is Commando. Commandos are said to be versatile, self-sufficient soldiers that excel at capitalizing on an advantage. Equipped with a personal Paratrooper Insert, combatants in this new division can drop into battle from the skies, either landing behind enemy lines or right next to the objective. On top of their ability to get into the action faster than any other division, Commandos boast a variety of benefits that are activated when they perform well. Not only do they regenerate health quicker, but killing an enemy soldier instantly activates health regeneration, allowing the Commando to get into the next fight even sooner. On top of that, multikills and headshots grant additional score as well as ammo.

This update will most likely also download DLC Pack 4: Shadow War, which may very well explain its huge size. As said, this patch will be made available tomorrow for the PC, and below you can find its complete changelog.
