"Divisions fundamentally redefines how players invest in their Multiplayer career. Reimagining the create-a-class system, players choose from five iconic World War II divisions each with specific basic combat training, division training and weapon skills. This streamlined approach to Multiplayer gives players the ability to reinforce their individual play styles while dominating the enemy in the world’s greatest conflict."
