Call of Duty: WWII 1.06 Update: What’s New

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.

Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass: 3 Reasons to Buy & 3 to Wait

Buy If You're Going to Play Call of Duty: WWII for a Year or More

Buy If You're Going to Play Call of Duty: WWII for a Year or More

Is Call of Duty: WWII your game? Are you psyched about playing boots on the ground combat despite the facet you won't see any ADS changes? For many people this is the game they will return to over and over throughout the next year, and maybe even longer. 

If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first month 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. 

We're seeing a new Call of Duty, or rather a return to a more classic Call of Duty game and while things could change with updates, if you are hooked on this game, buy the Season Pass now. 

You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may need to wait a long time for a deal.
