The new Call of Duty: WWII patch is now live on PS4, and coming to the Xbox One today. This is the Call of Duty: WWII 1.06 update that brings a number of important changes to the game and key fixes for Call of Duty: WWII problems.
After a rough first month, the new update delivers a new user interface for the game, bans for cheaters, many updates and fixes to console users. We expect a PC update in the near future. The patch also kicks off Ranked Play Season 1 and paves the way for a winter version of Carentan. We know this includes weapon changes and will now kick team killers from hardcore mode.
The PS4 Call of Duty: WWII 1.06 update is 388.9MB. We expect the Xbox One update will be very similar in size.
Sledgehammer is aware of a Prestige Exploit in HQ and they are ready to deploy a fix, but it is not part of this major update. Here is a full list fo the changes and what’s new in Call of Duty: WWII 1.06 update for PS4 and the Xbox One Call of Duty: WWII 1.6 update.
HQ STATUS UPDATE: After a bunch of testing, we are beginning to turn on fully populated Headquarters for everyone. As part of our latest patch, players simply select HQ via the MP menu. The core #CODWWII HQ experience is there, so players can compete, earn rewards, show off their accomplishments and connect with friends.

Buy if Call of Duty: WWII is Still Your Go to Game
This is still the go to boots on the ground version of Call of Duty, and even with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the way it makes sense to buy the Season Pass if you will play Call of Duty: WWII for most of 2018 and into 2019.
If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first 8 months of Call of Duty: WWII or because you like the direction the game is going with each update, you should buy the Season Pass.
For gamers who are planning to play Call of Duty: WWII for a year, it doesn't make sense to wait and buy the DLC separately or even to skip one or two of them since that will limit the matchmaking as you get split into a smaller and smaller pool.
You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may still need to wait a long time for a deal.
