WaWii Online Revealed

cod5topofficial.JPG
Call of Duty: World at War (WaWii) is getting the full preview from users who've gotten their hands on the game. Wondering what the online offerings are and how they work? Keep reading.
  • No lobbies =(
  • As we told you, it's an 8 player online game =(
  • Options for getting into a game are "Find a Match" or "Private Match"
    • There are 8 maps
    • Large Maps are Asylum and Cliffside, Medium maps are Castle, Hangar, Makin, and Upheaval, Small maps are Dome and Courtyard
    • You don't get to choose your maps in "Find a Match", they appear to be randomly chosen. To skip one you don't like, at least half the players gathered must choose to do so. =(
    • You can customize a lot options, including which map you want, in private match. More details when we have them.
  • Early reports are that Friend Codes are Not required for private matches =)
    • WiiHD remains skeptical and awaits more information however
    • It is still unclear how you get other players into a private match, so you should remain skeptical too
    • Update New reports indicate that the only conceivable way to get people into your private match, is through your Friend List — which is Friend Code controlled.
    • Update one user from callofduty.com claims (based on 2nd hand information) that after a random match, you can send friend requests from a list of recent opponents, a la Mario Kart Wii, in addition to adding via Friend Code
      • Update: so far there is no corroboration for the idea that you can add someone without a FC. WiiHD is investigating and encourages skepticism with all things related to FCs. Update: On further inspection, WiiHD can find no such option. Until someone with firsthand experience explains it, we're assuming it's bogus.
  • Leaderboards can be found under the "Barracks" moniker, and there is a locked mode called "Create a class" for custom class creation
    • For Create a Class, you choose a Primary weapon, a sidearm, a primary grenade and a special grenade and 3 perks
  • Match modes are "Bootcamp" (TDM for people under level 8 only), "TDM", "Free for All", "Hardcore TDM" (a locked mode, presumably just for vets), and "Veteran" (also locked at the beginning)

We'll update this when we know more about the Private Match setup.

Special thanks to zzzpwned and garththecat for sharing the info. Special thanks to MetroidCrime and the best Wii gaming forum for bringing it to WiiHD's attention. There is user gameplay footage after the break.
