Call of Duty: WW2, Sledgehammer Games’ next title in the franchise which takes it back to the glory days of World War 2, is currently in open beta for PC. You can head over to Steam right now and try it for yourself (though the user reviews are far from positive).

Despite being live for a little more than a day, the PC open beta has already prompted changes from the developer. Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey took to Reddit to outline some of the changes that would be coming to the beta soon.

These include a nerf to the damage per second of all submachine guns with decreased fallout range as well. The STG44 Assault Rifle recoil has also been nerfed and the fire rate for weapons like the M1A1, 1911 and P-08 has also been buffed. Various other fixes are also inbound and you can see some of the below.

Call of Duty: WW2 will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 3rd. What are your thoughts on the beta thus far? Let us know below.

Some of the fixes that will be coming to the Beta shortly include:

  • Infinite level loads and time-outs when using shader pre-caching and letter-boxing
  • Crash fix on start-up for Windows 8.0
  • Fixes to the behavior of the Resolution/Render Resolution/T2X Resolution advanced video options
  • Fixes to the T2X Resolution setting not getting preserved after exiting the game

Also, the PC Beta includes some new weapon tuning updates and we’re getting fresh match data on these changes. Specifically:

  • We reduced the damage per second and decreased falloff range across all SMGs.
  • The STG44 Assault Rifle recoil was nerfed.
  • Minor buff to the fire rate of the M1A1, 1911 and P-08.
