Activision revealed Call of Duty: WWII today alongside a new trailer and information about their upcoming game. The trailer focuses on gritty, dark combat which tells a harrowing story of survival and brotherhood. It appears that a lot of time went into making sure the campaign was meaningful and truly captured the essence of “no soldier fights alone”. The campaign will be co-op so you can fight with friends. However, you’re more vulnerable than ever because the game doesn’t feature regenerating health. For those who can’t wait until November, there will be a Private Multiplayer Beta later this year. Call of Duty: WWII is set to release on November 3.
As revealed in the leaks, Call of Duty: WWII starts on D-Day and follows a private from 1944 to 1945. The game takes place in Europe and ends in a thrilling conclusion in Germany. The team researched the weapons and environments by testing them out and visiting the locations where significant battles took place. Its supposed to be historically accurate even though the story may have some embellishments.
Call of Duty: WWII also features a diverse cast of characters which include the female leader of the French resistance. Not only will the title focus on brotherhood, but it will introduce players to many historical figures and inspirational leaders. Lastly, the game will also include a Destiny-like social space where gamers can interact with each other.
Call of Duty: WWII is exactly the game fans have been asking for for years.
Multiplayer also delivers a new approach to character and create-a-class through Divisions, War, an all-new narrative multiplayer mode of play, and Headquarters, a first of its kind for the Call of Duty social community, designed for players to interact and socialize with friends. The definitive next-generation World War II experience also introduces Nazi Zombies, an all-new co-op mode featuring a unique standalone storyline set during World War II that’s full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping action.
From the information provided so far, the game sounds like the ultimate modern World War II shooting experience. The wait for November just became unbearable! Activision really hit it out of the park with this one. For more information, including the proper multiplayer reveal, we’ll have to wait until E3 2017.
