After several years of pushing the franchise forward and far-flung into the future, the Call of Duty series has officially returned to its roots with the arrival of Call of Duty: WWII. This game take the franchise back to its roots, but with a modern graphical twist, as well as new gameplay features, here is some of what you can expect:
“Call of Duty®: WWII multiplayer is a fast-paced, grounded and action-packed mode set in some of the most iconic locations in World War II’s European theater with an arsenal of iconic weapons and equipment to suit different play styles and innovative ways to experience the mode, including:
- War Mode: Developed in partnership with Raven Software, allows players to compete against each other as Allies and Axis forces in team-driven, objective missions.
- Divisions: Redefines create-a-class system for how players develop their WWII Multiplayer Careers by enlisting in five iconic divisions, including the first to the fight Airborne Division, sharpshooting Mountain Division, the versatile Infantry Division, heavily-equipped Armored Division, and the Expeditionary Division armed with incendiary rounds and shotguns.
- Headquarters: An evolving, shared social space for players to connect with fans and friends.”
“Call of Duty: WWII is the right game at the right time for our fans. Returning the franchise to its gritty, boots on the ground, military roots was a big opportunity and a big responsibility. We were determined to deliver an unforgettable World War II experience, and I think we have,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “Our teams at Sledgehammer and Raven not only captured the epic scale and authentic atmosphere of the most brutal war ever fought, they also brought a hell of a lot of innovations—from a whole new way to play multiplayer with War Mode, to a new social space with Headquarters, to a jump-out-of-your-chair-scary Nazi Zombies mode. Whether you’re a long-time player, or totally new to the franchise, this is the game that will bring all of our fans together.”
The game is available now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
