Whoever has been running Call Of Duty’s recent marketing needs a fat ole’ raise, because every glimpse we get off the upcoming Call Of Duty: WWII gets me all the more hyped.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been this pumped for a COD game. From personal experience, talk to anyone over the age of 21, and they’ll tell you they stopped playing COD years ago. Why? The jetpacks — the goddamn jetpacks. They took away from what made the game fun and added unnecessary complications.
But then in 2016, a funny thing happened: the Battlefield franchise went back to old-school warfare with the epic Battlefield 1, while the Call Of Duty franchise themselves re-released the classic original Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now here we are, on the verge of the first World War II-based COD game in maybe over a decade.
Call of Duty: WWII is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. It is the fourteenth primary installment and first Call of Duty series game to be set primarily during World War II since Call of Duty: World at War in 2008.
The game is set in European theatre of the war. The campaign is centered around a squad in the 1st Infantry Division, and follows their battles in the Western Front, while the multiplayer expands on different fronts not seen in the campaign. Zombies mode also returns.
It will be released worldwide on November 3, 2017.
