Call of Duty: WWII was officially revealed two weeks ago. The trailer gave us some details – there will be boots on the ground fights. We collected some more information from different sources so we will put them together in this short summary.
When it will be released?
This game was developing by Sledgehammer Games for almost 3 years and it will be released on November 3. Prior to release will be a closed multiplayer beta of some kind for pre-orders on PS4 first. The multiplayer will be available at E3 2017, the first E3 that will be open to the public.
The main character is 19-year-old Ronald “Red” Daniels. The whole story is about brotherhood on the battlefield. Daniels is from Texas. He is working for Pierson and Turner, two men who have different opinions about everything, especially about the war. There are also other important characters like female resistance fighters, a soldier in an African American unit, a British officer and a child.
The game will depict racism, religious persecution and sexism. Famous historian Martin Morgan was helping Sledgehammer about these things. We heard that CoD: WWII will be totally historically authentic but we won’t know for sure until we see it.
The new tale is more horrific and soldiers are more vulnerable. There won’t be regenerating health – you will have to ask for help and look for medics you need for recovery. You will have to worry about every single bullet and there will be a lot of them in every moment.
Missions will span from the D-Day Beach Landings to the Battle of the Bulge. You will be involved in many missions with interesting goals. One of them will put you in the shoes of woman fighting in the French resistance. It is going to be interesting, unusual experience.
Despite all of these improvements we talked about, we are not so sure how much this game is really different from Call of Duty past.
We know that there will be the multiplayer option and that all usual modes will be available. Also, there is going to be addition of the new War mode – a multiplayer experience that will immerse the players in iconic World War 2 battles. Allied and Axis powers will clash and the whole story is inspired by real events in each battle.
One of the possible scenarios will be the famous Norway invasion. We are looking forward to hear how many players will be involved. We are hoping for battles with 32 to 64 players. Multiplayer reveal will come at E3 in June.
One big, new feature is Headquarters – social tool allowing for creative modes of multiplayer interaction on your PS4, Xbox or on PCs.
It is confirmed that Zombies co-op mode exists and we will see players battle the Third Reich’s experiments in undead army recruiting. There are some hints that something else is going to co-op relate.
WWII will be authentic, gritty and boots on the ground. The whole game is great ideal – WWII is always interesting theme. You will enjoy fantastic action game full of adrenaline and you will be learning history at the same time. That’s why this game is perfect.
