Call of Duty: WWII Xbox One l PS4 l PC
DEVELOPER: Sledgehammer Games
RELEASE DATE: November 3, 2017
I haven’t reviewed a Call of Duty game since Black Ops IIback in 2012. Hell, I haven’t even played a Call of Duty game since then. Mainly because the series kept venturing further and further into high-tech futuristic settings.
But for the latest game in the series, Call of Duty: WWII, the franchise returns to its roots. So when Activision offered a chance to review the game, I simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to revisit the franchise as it revisited World War II.
A couple of months back it was revealed that the Call of Duty franchise was making its long-awaited return to the World War II setting with Call of Duty: WWII.
For E3 2017, a new trailer was released for the game. The focus of this trailer is an important element of any Call of Duty game, the multiplayer action. You can read more about the game and watch the trailer below.
The three big military first-person shooter series—Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Medal of Honor—all started out set during World War II. Eventually CoD and Battlefield (though Medal of Honor tried to stay with the pack, the franchise has fallen off the map) moved on to other time periods, and in recent years we’ve been seeing modern and futuristic settings for the games.
Battlefield finally decided to jump back in time to before its roots with last year’s WWI-set Battlefield 1, but Call of Duty continued along the path forward with the futuristic Infinite Warfare. And while the ridiculous firefights in space looked over-the-top entertaining, fans were clearly sick of the direction the series was going.
Now the CoD franchise has unveiled their return to World War II, titled Call of Duty: WWII. An official reveal trailer for the game has been released, and you can find it, along with more information, below.
The latest release in the Call of Duty series, titled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, was on hand at E3 2016 to show off its “Ship Assault” campaign gameplay demo.
The demo shows the player jumping into their ship for a little space dogfighting before jumping out to space assault a much bigger ship while getting around using a space grappling hook. Welcome to Space Call of Duty! All of this probably sounds completely ridiculous to you, and it is. But the thing is…it actually looks kinda fun.
