Call of Duty WWII has "Requires Content Download" on front label

Postby Steve » December 5th, 2017, 12:26 pm

I picked up Call of Duty WWII via Amazon during Black Friday/Cyber weekend sales and was surprised to see a small banner on the bottom the box saying "Requires Content Download". Not meant to debate the pros or cons of mandatory downloads for physical games (or possibly single player games) but I thought it was an interesting sign of the times and the first time I've seen anything like it. At least it is an minor improvement over having to scan the back of the box.

I think this is a positive development. At least they are being straight with the customer. The worst are games that leave it ambiguous. I suspect game companies were getting a lot of returns to necessitate this. Still, I won't be buying it.

Is this always online or one time?
