the recent years of futuristic combat, the Call
of Duty series is going old school with its latest iteration, Call
of Duty: WWII. The game is coming out on November 3 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A trailer showing
in-game footage has also just been released.
In this game, you are a "young soldier who is facing the unforgiving reality of war alongside his brothers in arms". You'll be fighting in the Battle of Normandy as well as the Battle of Hurtgen Forest in campaign mode. You can also choose to side with the Allies or the Axis in Multiplayer mode, or play with a friend in the Nazi Zombies co-op mode.
The announcement may seem like an immediate response to Battlefield 1, but the Call of Duty series has actually explored the World War II era before, with Call of Duty: World at War. Though both World at War and WWII have Nazi Zombies, the latter doesn't seem to be a sequel to the former, given that World at War was made by an entirely different studio.
Call of Duty: WWII is developed by Sledgehammer Games, the same studio behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.The Digital Deluxe Edition of the game, which includes the base game and the Season Pass, is now available for pre-order at the official Call of Duty website. Pre-ordering will reserve you a spot in the beta access, which launches first on the PlayStation 4 later this year.
