You can’t be shooting Nazis all of the time. Call of Duty: WWII lets you take a break from the intense first-person shooter game in the Headquarters section of multiplayer.
If you go to the R&R tent in the Headquarters social hub, you’ll find that you can play up to 15 different classic Activision games.
The control schemes for the games have been converted into the modern controls for a game controller. I played a few of the games at a review event for the game. The titles include River Raid and Seaquest, as you can see in the video embedded in this post.
Headquarters is a social hub that you can join and interact with 47 other people playing the game. It has a variety of leaderboards and other activities, where you can square off against friends. R&R is just one more place among many where you can earn bragging rights against your friends.
The full list of games includes Barnstorming, Boxing, Chopper Command, Cosmic Commuter, Demon Attack, Enduro, Fishing Derby, Grand Prix, Kaboom!, Pitfall II, Private Eye, River Raid, Seaquest, Skiing, and Spider Fighter.
You can purchase the games using armory credits, which are earned via gameplay.
Call of Duty: WWII is available on November 3 for the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. The publisher provided GamesBeat with a copy of PS4 edition of the game for this review, and I attended a review event.
